Your Cup of Tea

Step away from the stress of everyday life at the new TeaScapes tea bar, which opened this spring on First Avenue in Atlantic Highlands. The tea bar is a relaxing place to unwind while sipping one of TeaScapes’ custom blends. Looking for a gift? They carry tea accessories and books too. 68 First Ave., Atlantic Highlands, 732.203.5100; enjoyteascapes.com.

A New York Slice

If you’re looking for a mix of familiar and gourmet Italian bites, check out the new GiGi’s New York Style Pizza and Restaurant located on Ocean Avenue in Sea Bright. Recently opened by chef Kenny Gambella and his wife, Kelly, who also own the nearby Sonny’s Sandwich Shop, Gigi’s can seat 32 in the airy, newly renovated space with an additional 24 outdoor seats. Classic New York-style pizzas share space on the menu with the upside-down Sicilian pie, fresh takes on pasta and mini deep-fried calzones. 1142 Ocean Ave., Sea Bright, 732.530.7499; gigispizzasb.com.

A Farm-to-Table Facelift 

Pop’s Garage in The Grove West in Shrewsbury has changed its name to Amelia’s Kitchen and completely revamped its menu. No longer your typical Mexican cocina, Amelia’s Kitchen is serving up healthier Baja California-style fare. Their new emphasis on farm-to-table dining is sure to make it popular with families looking for healthy (but still tasty) ethnic eats. 520 Broad St., Shrewsbury, 732.530.7677; ameliaskitchen.com.
