Underpass Art in Clifton NJ bring a sense of LA to New Jersey

Looking more like something one would expect to find in Los Angeles this bit of Freeway Art was spotted on Broad Street in Clifton NJ where the roadway passes under an ramp connecting the Garden State Parkway to Route 3.

Simple stencils were used to create the umbrellas and raindrops - adding a bit of whimsy to an otherwise mundane piece of infrastucture.

Jeero Ponders American Individualism

Jeero wonders,

 if America is all about individual freedom,

 and Americans live for their cars,

 why are all the cars the same dull colours?

. @DevilGourmet Discovers LeSalbuen on Walnut Street Montclair

Le Salbuen  has been an integral part of the Restaurant Renaissance on Walnut St. in Montclair. Owned by the husband and wife team of John and Christina Salierno, Le Salbuen is part bistro, part neighbor’s kitchen. The menu is a travelogue of international flavors and influences that have been passed along and shared like heirloom china at a family dinner table. And don’t get me started on the food because the editors will probably scold me for using too many exclamation points!

Just as the café contains old things presented in new ways, so does the menu. A stand out on the menu is the DBLT : the Duck Bacon Lettuce Tomato, a new take on the American classic.

LeSalbuen ~ Watermelon Radish and CauliflowerCheck out the watermelon radishes on this salad! Lemon aioli, more radishes, and cauliflower take a back row seat to these gems.
Of course there is a whole lot more to Le Salbuen including World Cuisine and Fusion Dishes inspired by the travels of John and Christina. Read more on Devil Gourmet
