The Belmont Tavern is one of New Jersey’s most famous restaurants, and this humble Belleville bar-and-grill has been dishing out Italian and all-American standards since it opened in 1967. The cash-only joint is always full of locals and tourists, and it offers far more than you’d expect from a neighborhood red-sauce joint. The Belmont Tavern may just serve the best chicken in New Jersey, but we’re not talking about typical fried or roast chicken. The flavor wizards at the Belmont Tavern created some new dishes you may have never heard of – including a famous one that can only be found at this restaurant. Once you dig into their signature chicken dish, you’ll wonder how it took so long to make everyone’s favorite bird sing like this!
