2016 Reason to Venture Into Trenton

Chick & Nello’s Homestead Inn

For decades, you had to rely on the waiters to recite what’s available. Now they’ve finally gotten menus, but don’t bother: We’ll just tell you that you want linguine with the "primo" sauce (a combination of pork ragu and oil-and-garlic sauces), some baked clams, an antipasti salad, and a veal chop cooked on a real charcoal grill. Or, if it’s Wednesday, ask for the whole veal breast special, something we can’t even find in Philadelphia.
