When the Fat Radish opened about 8 years ago, my husband and I loved it because the food was fresh and the vibe was fun. Today it’s still going strong and we love going there with friends from the neighborhood. The crowd is always happy and fun, and we always have a great time!
When you walk into the Fat Radish, the first thing you should get is a cocktail! They’re so well made, and they’ll put you in the mood for a great night!
The menu changes all the time and we love that they source all their vegetables from local farms in Southern Jersey and upstate New York. When we went there last weekend, we ordered the Long Island fluke crudo, the farro risotto, and the whole roasted hen of the woods. We followed those appetizers with the heirloom carrots, the pan roasted chicken (to die for!), the black bass and the Jerusalem artichoke lasagna (unreal)! The crusted parmesan duck fat chips were a delicious choice to share.
You should definitely save room for dessert. The Banoffee pie was one of the lightest banana chocolate cream pies I’ve ever tasted, and the house made donuts with seasonal jam were totally sinful. We walked out happy and full!
