NJ'S TOP 25 PIZZARIAS

FROM NJ.COM - ARTICLE, LIST ~ "So here's how this is going to work: The New Jersey Pizza Power Rankings will serve as the ultimate measure of the state's best pizzerias, based on food, atmosphere, service, tradition and other factors. We'll be re-visiting this list at least twice or year, or maybe more if great new pizzerias emerge like a bolt from the blue.. The New

Jersey Pizza Power Rankings will take in the entire state; there is great pizza in all 21 counties. Really. You just have to know where you look. The list is a mix of high-end, middle-brow and low-rent places.. A bare-bones place that does a great plain slice gets the same consideration as a stylish restaurant that makes excellent Neapolitan pizzas in its imported Italian brick oven."

This includes projects from Paul Liebrandt, Amanda Cohen, Mario Carbone, Alain Ducasse, and plenty of other Michelin types you'd never guess would open something in an airport.. Perhaps the best news of all here, however, is that United has just starting letting those in Terminal C pay for things other than flights with frequent-flier miles.. great news for anyone with a layover and 89,000 miles to spend at Alain Ducasse's place."

"I believe that health and well-being are dependent on several factors: nutrition, relationships, career and love for the self. I promote balance in all areas of life. It starts with a decision to change. I don’t count calories, points, carbs or pounds. I’m not a food extremist in any way. I believe in simplicity: local foods, whole ingredients, super foods and exercise. ViaNutrition is based on the idea that true health means you’re making the right choices for your body because you want to, not because you have to. Once you get started on this path everything else falls into place. I’ll help you get there!" Karen Phillips
