Type: Classic Italian cuisine; breath taking views
Sally Tee's in Monmouth Beach is a racetracker favorite with good food and a marina view. My wife and I live in Asbury Park, which has a nice boardwalk, legendary music venues (Stone Pony and AP Convention Hall) and excellent restaurants like Moonstruck, Stella Marina and Ole'. Sunday nights at Donavan's Reef in Sea Bright is a racetrack hangout with live music on the sea wall, cheap drinks and lots of fun. If you cash some tickets you can celebrate with a lobster at Doris and Ed's (Highlands). If you don't, there is good pizza at Zachary's (Oceanport Ave. across from Monmouth Park) or Pete and Elda's in Neptune.
