Our chef is New Jersey resident Ralph Romano, who came to Red Knot after a stint opening up the prestigious Barclay Center in Brooklyn NY as Executive Chef.
“I’m thrilled to be back in my home state and associated with such a prestigious public-private partnership,” says Chef Romano, whose last high-profile project was the opening of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
“Red Knot will be a showcase for the Garden State’s bounty of fresh farm produce. We work with local purveyors for Jersey shore day boat catch, specialty meats, fine chocolates, cheeses and beer.”
What’s on the menu? Accessible, honest dishes that showcase the craft of cooking: house-made pastas, pizza from the wood-burning oven and barbeque from indoor-outdoor grills. Signature dishes include the Red Knot Salad (tamarind honey crusted duck breast; endive, radicchio +wheatberries); Wild Mushroom Empanadas; Garlic Chip Rock Shrimp Pasta Neri; the Red Knot Burger (10 oz. special blend from Gachot and Gachot w/aged gouda, smoked Jersey tomatoes & house-made ketchup); outstanding
Buttermilk Chicken Wings finished in the wood oven; and the Red Knotdog signature frank (beer-boiled and grill-crisped w/Jersey grilled corn salsa on a wheatstone pretzel bun).
Signature cocktails and wine list are developed by Food & Beverage Director Richard Spaulding (formerly of Ursino and 90 Acres). “It’s exciting to be building something great that will provide terrific food, hospitality and learning to generations of Union County residents to come,” he notes enthusiastically.
Located on the ground floor of the Clubhouse, Red Knot is named for an endangered shorebird that migrates through NJ between South America and the Arctic.
The restaurant has a modern Crafstman feel and is decorated in “Indian Summer” tones ~ natural stone, imported tile, bamboo flooring and solid oak + cherry finishings. Curved walls, floor-to-ceiling windows and a grand slate terrace (perfect for dining in season!) highlight panoramic views of Galloping Hill Golf Course, the challenging 271- acre municipal course known as “the home of public golf in New Jersey.” Red Knot will seat 50 indoors and another 50 on terraces overlooking the sweeping hills.
