Such a place is Dream Cuisine, where restaurant managers Elizabeth and Melissa Malesich and chef extraordinaire (and owner) Vincent Fanari have brought a touch of the South of France to South Jersey.
We dined at Dream Cuisine on Route 70 in the Village Walk Shopping Center on Saturday evening and found this intimate eatery to be enchanting, dreamy and romantic.
At this low-key, 40-seat restaurant the focus is on civilized dining, fine food, enjoyable conversation and personal service. And you'll be pleasantly surprised at the entree prices which range from $19.00 to $28.00 with a wonderful four-course, prix-fixe dinner available from $30.00 to $40.00.
This is rustic Provencal cooking at its best with all the delights and fragrances of an open kitchen. We enjoyed roast chicken breast, broiled scallops, shrimp scampi and beef Burgoyne. We also added fresh, tasty salads (with cranberries, apples, pears and goat cheese, depending on the choice) and warm apple pie with French vanilla ice cream for dessert. And by the way, the coffee was excellent as well.
This is a BYOB and you will have to make reservations.
What a delight it is to have a cozy French bistro in the middle of Cherry Hill! And the friendly managers and personable chef-owner are on hand to guarantee your complete satisfaction.
Dream Cuisine is open Wednesday through Saturday from 5 to 11 PM. Lunch is served on Saturday from 11:30 till 2 PM with Sunday brunch from 11 AM till 3 PM.
