In 2019, Peter Genovese ate his way around New Jersey with a vengeance. All that research culminated in rankings of the best dishes/sandwiches/meals he ate in 2019 - which, according to Peter, makes them the best dishes you should eat in 2020! These "bests" are spread all over the state map, and the culinary map. Seafood, steak, ribs, pizza, burgers, grilled cheese, tacos and empanadas. Puerto Rican, Italian, Mexican, Korean, Indian and Greek. He ate widely and well. And, while this is not a list of the state's best restaurants, it is a list of the best things he ate all year. Coming in at "Lucky #13" is The Blue Monkey Tavern's spicy grilled shrimp, with chopped avocado, cucumber, celery, tomato and cilantro tossed in hot sauce. "It may have been the best appetizer in the entire N.J.'s best bar showdown over the summer."
