Just had a phenomenal lunch at the former Sunnyside Market in Lincroft.
The new spot is called Almost Home General. Seriously this place is genuinely stepping the game up in the breakfast/lunch category.
For starters, it’s a beautiful establishment. Looks like everything was ripped to the studs and redone—the effort shows.
Equally matched is the food. I honestly wasn’t expecting this level. Everything is locally sourced when possible and made in-house, including the bread for the sandwiches.
My wife, mother-in-law, and I got the meatloaf sandwich, hot biscuit sandwich, fried chicken sandwich, and a side of cheddar grits.
The star of the show was the fried chicken sandwich. Buttermilk chicken thigh, homemade ranch, and hot honey with a side of polenta fries. It’s massive and easily sharable. The hot biscuit’s sausage was freshly ground made in-house, probably the best sausage pattie I ever had. The meatloaf had a great taste; I just wish there was more meat. And the cheddar grits were gone before I could take a picture.
Once again, nothing in the area comes close. The owner is a Rumson native, so I always like supporting a local, especially when it’s this good. It’s safe to say I will be back.
