NJ Dining: Elements in Princeton

Nowadays, when you pull into 163 Baynard Lane you hand your keys to a valet, not a mechanic. Surprisingly, Elements, the acclaimed Princeton restaurant headed up by Chef Scott Anderson, is located in what was formerly an automobile service station.  Re-envisioned and re-purposed, the exterior of Elements – muted stone and shiny metal – hums with a sleek, steely coolness and refined, modern confidence.

Mr. Hot and I journeyed down Route 1 to meet Pat Tanner, the well-respected, NJ food writer and restaurant critic, and her husband, Bill, for dinner at Elements.

Our table was ready when we arrived, so we breezed past the tiny, four-seat bar and were escorted into the well-appointed, contemporary dining room.  Subtle vestiges of the former use can be identified, like the car bays that are now windows – but it’s a bit like finding Waldo, and rather gratifying to discover.
