Deciding Where to Eat in Princeton Tonight?tables in a Princeton restaurant

We’ve all been there. Sitting in the driveway with our significant other trying to decide where to eat. The bickering, back and forth with “you pick” and the popular, “I don’t care,” generally ends with going back inside to watch a movie and make macaroni and cheese, or making a quick run to the nearest fast food joint. Nobody wants to end their night like that. Luckily, the experienced realtors at Gloria Nilson Real Estate Co. decided to end the bickering, the macaroni and cheese, and the opt-out for fast food with our list of the best places to eat in Princeton tonight!

Our Favorite Chinese Restaurant

If you decide that you’re wanting noodles other than macaroni, we definitely recommend Hunan! This place is a staple for Chinese food in Princeton and offers all of the classics that people crave like: lo mein, fried rice, egg rolls, orange chicken, and yes, even sweet and sour.

Our Favorite Mexican Restaurant

If Chinese food doesn’t suit your cravings, then maybe some authentic Mexican food will do the trick, and nobody does authentic Mexican like Tortuga’s Mexican Village. With a new flair on classic dishes like tamales, enchiladas, and burritos, be sure to check out Tortuga’s tonight.

Our Favorite Steakhouse

Maybe you’re in the mood for something more fancy and steak is just calling your name. If that’s the case, then you need to head on over to the Witherspoon Grill. A casual, yet refined setting with some of the best lobster and steak in the area make this steakhouse a place you won’t soon forget.

Our Favorite Place for Breakfast

Everyone loves breakfast for dinner, right? Or maybe you’re going out for breakfast. For whatever reason you may have breakfast on the mind. Jammin’ Crepes is sure to please! The very definition of hometown goodness, Jammin’ Crepes gets all their ingredients from local farmers and serves it all in the best crepes in town. Pair this with some of their soups, salads, and home baked goods, and you have a breakfast or brunch combination to die for.

Our Favorite Place for Dessert

When it comes to desert, nobody does it quite like The Bent Spoon. A great place for ice cream, cupcakes, cookies, and anything you may need to satisfy that sweet tooth. It was voted one of the best ice cream parlors in America!

These are some excellent options in Princeton that are sure to please, but there are plenty of other great places too! Here are some of our honorable mentions: Blue Point Grill, Mistral, Agricola, and Elements. We don’t want to bombard with you too many places or we’ll be back in the same boat that we were in before you started reading. So be sure to check out these wonderful places and let us know you’re favorite places in the Princeton area!
