Farewell to the Chippery (Fanwood NJ)
I just found out that one of New Jersey's most renowned Fish & Chips joints (and the Roadfood place closest to where I live, just about 1/2 mile away) closed for good last Sunday. Not sure of the reasons, I am asking around. They still seemed to be doing a thriving business. It was a mostly takeout operation, just a few tables in the cramped inside.
All it was was a shack by the side of the road in a residental neighborhood, it's been there since the mid 70's.
We will miss thier takeout "buckets" of fried cod, etc, always available when we would have a discussion of "Let's do takeout tonight". I don't know of any similar alternative for miles around. It will be missed.
The website has already been taken down, but here's what none other than the NY Times had to say about it just a couple of years ago.
