Heirloom Kitchen, Old Bridge [NJ]


Love their food. One of these days I have to take one of their cooking classes. I’d love one on plating…their food is always so artistically plated.

I’m sure it was me in the background of his demo tape for the show that gave him the edge.


We are super excited about this. Neeli told us this on the sly when we were in a couple months ago. I have watched Top Chef for years. It will be nice to cheer for someone who’s food we have eaten!


So…we left NNJ for Monmouth County two months ago and have been enjoying every minute of discovering new spots, from off the radar spots such as Johnny Piancone’s to critical darlings such as The Grand Tavern. We have, however, missed some of our previous go-to spots, particularly young home grown chef driven passion projects that source the finest the Garden State has to offer and literally create art on a plate. We said good bye to Anthony Bucco, Ryan DePersio, and the next great Jersey chef Robby Felipe and rather than take our chances at The Outback on Rt. 35, we wandered west to Old Bridge and landed in our new bliss, The Heirloom Kitchen. Anthony Ciano, soon to be of Top Chef fame and his crew provided us with an experience non pareil. The service was so good, so eager, helpful and unobstrusive at the same time they could have served us Alpo and it would have been a delight. However, they doubled down and we were treated to the best meal I’ve had in 2018, by leaps and bounds. I could go on about the duck, the octopus, the amuse, the charred wedge salad, but I wouldn’t do it justice. If I knew how to post a Yelp review I’d give it like 50 stars.

@NotJrvedivici can you please merge? Thx!


Robby Felice. Stupid auto correct




Glad you enjoyed! Heirloom is my favorite restaurant.

Thank you (and your girlish figure)! :smile:


Don’t want to assume you’ve all heard that the chef from HK is on the new season of Top Chef, which started tonight…
