Char Steakhouse - Raritan
The New Jersey-based Char Steakhouse pulls out all stops, setting itself apart from the hordes of like-minded eateries in the area. Custom-designed fireplaces, a curved wall of water that rains serenity in the aptly named Rain Room and other opulent accents help to make it an ideal venue for special occasions. Seating in the lounge is offered on a first come first serve basis or party goers can reserve arched custom booths for up to 12.
This original location opened in 2008 and continues to be a popular destination. Guests may choose from seven cuts of the finest quality dry aged beef or snack on oysters and colossal blue crab from the raw bar. Steaks, such as a 20-ounce Kansas City strip and 12-ounce filet, are charred at 1,800 degrees. There are also a number of seafood-focused entrees.
