Basie Bytes: "POACHED PEAR SALAD" at Pearl at Oyster Point Hotel

This Week's Best Bet:
Poached Pear Salad at Pearl at Oyster Point Hotel


Offering reasonably priced meal options and featuring outstanding service and an unrivaled view of the picturesque Navesink River, Pearl (the hidden-gem-of-a-restaurant located within Oyster Point Hotel) is a place to unwind at the end of a long work week, or just to escape for an hour on your lunch break.

We had already loved Pearl for a long time before we got around to trying this unique menu item; ever since, it is what we order every time!

This is one salad that we would not be able to duplicate at home. The poached pear, seasoned walnuts and grapes are perfect together; served over delicate baby greens and tossed with red wine and pumpkin seed dressing with a side of melted brie on toasted French bread... just delicious! We've ordered this to go, too. They prepare and package it separately so you just have to assemble it, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy and amazing dinner.
