Star Tavern & Pizzeria
400 High St, Orange, NJ
As I alluded to in a previous post about Kinchley’s Tavern in Ramsey I love a good bar pizza. Star Tavern in Orange is probably one of the better examples of this particular pizza style — nice crispy crust with good char, nice tangy sauce, good cheese distribution. The restaurant has that great old school tavern atmosphere that you find in great college towns.

Antipasto salad. Nice pile of sharp provolone with good pepperoni and salami.
Wings. The default sauce had a decent kick to it and clearly these wings were not from a big bag.
The plain cheese pie. I URGE you to resist the temptation to order a “special” pie or any other pie with toppings on it before trying the plain cheese pie first. The plain cheese pie is an exercise in pizza perfection simplicity. This is a very good example of when less is more.

Nice char underneath.
Three cheese pie with sausage and meatballs. Very good, but as I said, get the plain first.
