NJ Dining: Adonisa’s (CLOSED)


NOTE: Adonisa’s has closed.

Adonisa’s Greek Restaurant
200 Main Street, Fort Lee NJ
(201)944-9462

Fort Lee is one of my favorite dining destinations in Northern New Jersey, because it is an incredibly bustling town — practically a micro-city in itself, and home to a diverse ethnic population, which includes a large group of Asians, which includes Koreans, Japanese and Chinese. Traditionally Fort Lee was home to a very strong Italian-American population, but in the last 20 years, its demographics have swung towards the previously mentioned Asian group, whose affluence have transformed the Northern New Jersey town and the surrounding area into a mecca for Asian eating.

However lately, a number of new Non-Asian eateries in Fort Lee have popped up, Mediterranean-style in particular. My current favorite is the two-table takeout Joeyness on the far end of Main Street which specializes in Lebanese Falafel and Kebab sandwiches. However a new Greek restaurant/cafe, Adonisa’s has just opened up across the street from the Main Street Borders bookstore. It should be noted Fort Lee has had a Greek restaurant for many years now — a local branch of the It’s Greek To Me chain which recently moved to a bigger location on Palisades Avenue, but I never thought the food at any of the branches was anything special.

Adonisa’s appetizers menu is fairly Greek restaurant boilerplate. However the flavor certainly is not.

Lentil soup. I liked this but it needed a squeeze of lemon and a little bit of salt.
