The Brick Oven

 117 Quimby St
Westfield, NJ
 

Reliable Italian

I recently revisited the Brick Oven as part of a party of 10 (seated at adjoing tables, one of 6 and the other of 4 as requested). We brought a boat-load of wine and it was handled professionally, including the several bottles of sparkling that we drank. I ordered the old reliable Chicken Parmigianna and it was both delicious and huge; indeed the half I brought home was the next evening’s supper. Others ordered a variety of standard menu items and specials. All was similarly portioned and well received. It is a good place with ‘comfortable’ old-style southern Italian offerings, out of the box specials, and fair prices. The only downside: It is quite noisy and difficult to hold a conversation with others at a table for six.

Chicken Parmigianna

It came with two flattened chicken breast halves nicely sauteed with a flavorful sauce and copious amounts of good mozzarella. The pasta was spaghetini, not what I would have ordered (it just came with it), but it was cooked perfectly al dente (not so easy with such a fragile pasta), amply sauced, and quite good. Who needs fancy food?
