South Jersey

There's been quite the brouhaha about the Union League's repeated attempts to buy a golf course. Lost in the shuffle, though, was that, according to the Inquirer they also bought the Backyard, a gorgeous little BYOB in Stone Harbor, and made it members only. This is sad. I love that restaurant, and while I've been a guest at the Union League, I'm more likely to renounce my New Jersey residency or get a cat than join, so getting back to the Backyard would depend on leaning on a member. I'm not surprised the Union League set its sights on Stone Harbor. It's long been a vacation spot for the Mainline/Haddonfield crowd, so of course they bought a restaurant there and not among that new money crowd over in Avalon or, God forbid, the plebes of Sea Isle. Two tips if you want to stay in Stone Harbor for great food (because my first instinct would be to shoot down the parkway to Cape May): Check out the Water Star Grille at the Reeds in Stone Harbor, which is a wonderful spot with nice water views that also has a full bar. Or see if the Backyard's opening up before Memorial Day and try to bluff your way in on May 17th, a day on which Union League members will be wearing giant hats at the Radnor Hunt.
