While the Shore features no shortage of seagulls or sweaty beachside dance clubs, it does lack proper places to eat and drink like an adult - especially when you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or just the fact that you were smart enough to hop on route 18 to skip miles of traffic. Pascal & Sabine is a rare exception. This is one of the best restaurants in Asbury Park and makes great cocktails, has a solid wine list, and serves delicious French-inspired food. This is a good place to order lots of things to share, like the excellent pork chop and a variety of local seafood, which will give you plenty to discuss when your bathing suit doesn’t fit poolside the next day.
