New Jersey isn’t exactly known for its rural country roads – it’s the most densely-populated and built state in the United States! But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some countryside havens, and The Circle in Newton looks like one of them. This rural restaurant in New Jersey looks like a humble farmhouse set between two cornfields along a lightly-traveled road – but it’s anything but. Founded in 2020 by two veterans of one of the most storied restaurant empires in the world, it’s bringing small-batch, local fine dining to New Jersey. Serving a seasonal menu and partnering with local farmers, bakers, and other food artisans, The Circle is serving up an always-changing menu every night – and they’re waiting for you to sit down and enjoy some country hospitality, New Jersey style.
