For more than 40 years, Fromagerie has been a landmark in Rumson, New Jersey. Owners and brothers Markus and Hubert Peter hired Chef Burke during his formative years, realized his talents and mentored the emerging young chef. Chef Burke would often say that when the Peters were ready, it was his dream to one day buy Fromagerie, which was acquired by The David Burke Group in 2006.
Lovers of the original restaurant will welcome mainstay dishes such as the classic Hot & Angry Lobster, which are now complemented by Executive Chef Phil Deffina's signature dishes, such as Buffalo Carpaccio, Open - Faced Basil Ravioli and award-winning dry-aged steaks. Fromagerie serves dinner and even at the bar the menu selections are replete with creativity and flavor, such as Short Rib Dumplings, Squid a la Plancha and Bourbon-Chili Glazed Wings.
The restaurant features seasonal and local offerings as well, in homage to the abundant produce and seafood available in the Garden State.
