Scott Anderson may be a rock star in the culinary world (he’s been a semifinalist for best chef in the Mid-Atlantic region for the James Beard awards four times), but if you’re expecting a Gordon Ramsay type with a fiery temper, think again. This mild-mannered chef prefers his food to be the center of attention. Indeed, it is, and elements is widely considered on par with many of New York’s finest restaurants. Settle in for an experience where a cavalcade of artfully plated cuisine is set before you. Choose from a fourcourse dinner, the chef’s tasting menu (with 10-12 courses) or the grand tasting menu (with a whopping 17-22 courses, but don’t worry since they are diminutive). elements is the very essence of haute cuisine and is the answer to every New Jersey planner’s dilemma of finding a place with Manhattan-level dining sans bridge or tunnel traffic. 

Located upstairs from its more casual sister, Mistral, elements has an open kitchen and just nine tables in the main dining room (buyouts of this room are available with room for 50 guests). There are two private rooms (one accommodates 10 guests; the second is suitable for 25) that can be combined to accommodate larger groups. Though elements is only open for dinner, its two rooms, fully A/V equipped, are available for daytime bookings. Four- and five-course lunches are served family-style from Mistral and shuttled upstairs.

Awards do not come easily in the restaurant business. Michelin, AAA and Forbes tell us who the best is (and Wine Spectator when it comes to vino), and there are only a select few of local establishments that make the esteemed cut. The Bernards Inn is in rare company, as it is the only restaurant in New Jersey that has made the Forbes list of the top restaurants in the United States. AAA counts just 11 restaurants in its Four-Diamond rating in our state. While you may hear that trophies are handed out just for showing up, it’s clearly not the case when it comes to dining.

 

INSPIRATION
The freshness of the new, clean sunlight inspired Marlene Freeman to design a neutral-colored table that awakens your neurons with the millions of sparkling lights reflecting off the abundance of crystal pieces upon this table.

DETAILS
This table delights the eye with a bevy of crystal pieces featuring a variety of patterns, some etched with straight, sharp lines and others decorated with flowing, organic designs.
