From Coffee & Bagels to a Real Restaurant (new owner)

Session Bistro in Maywood, New Jersey, used to be home to a bagel and coffee place under a previous owner. The place has been transformed and reincarnated into a nice smaller 
restaurant with a very interesting menu of American items with a slight Asian influence with just the right amount if choices including Korean tacos. I had Duck Au Poivre, which was very good.  I even liked the asparagus! However the Chef could not tell me where the duck was from, although I'll assume it's from Long Island. It's usually the chef that orders this right??? My family members had dishes ranging from eggplant to lamb chops, all of which were very very good, and our BYOB wine, with my new wine aerator made it even better, making by skeptic brother in law no longer a skeptic for new fangled wine accessories! WE BONDED over this!! On weekends there is live "background" music which I feel is not needed as the place is too small for the added bonus of live music, other than that, Sinatra is on CD. The homemade ice creams are excellent.
