On Saturday we paid a farewell visit to the Half Moon Restaurant and Saloon, which is closing its doors on March 11. Judging by the crowd -- the rooftop dining area was completely full -- a lot of other folks were saying goodbye, too. I ordered my favorite Full Moon cheeseburger with caramelized onions, and we shared a heaping plate of cheese-slathered waffle fries.
Taking over the Half Moon's premises will be the Grain Craft Bar and Kitchen. That restaurant has a branch on Main Street in Newark, and I'm told that we are in for a treat.
