Quaint little restaurant

This was my 4th visit to Gourmet Expressions and it did not disappoint. Located in an old general store on Main St., there is limited seating, so reservations are a must. The menu is limited and seasonal and the food is wonderful. Enjoy!

Not a good experience and would not return. Made a 6pm reservation and was told we had to leave by Not a problem. As each course was served, before we finished, the waiter or waitress was hovering, ready to clear our dishes. When we requested they open another bottle of wine, the waiter replied it was not a good

I actually thought hard about writing this review because we'd like to keep this incredible restaurant a secret. The food, atmosphere and service are great. This is our new favorite spot.

This restaurant is located in a small village called Mountainville in Lebanon. Very cute, rustic decor. Terrific food! We stopped there for lunch and were very happy with our meals. Had the California wrap (real crab, greens, avocado, with a soy ginger sauce) and the sliders. Both were delicious and nicely plated. Service was great - friendly and attentive.

Gourmet Expressions is a find — if you can find it. Although it’s actually in the Tewksbury Township crossroads hamlet of Mountainville, use the Lebanon mailing address to locate it with your GPS. The drive from Route 22 isn’t complicated, but if you go the scenic back way, uphill and downhill through Tewksbury, it can be a quest.
This journey is worth it, though, because at the end of the trail are some of the greatest chunky chocolate chip cookies ($) you will ever enjoy. I would make a return trip just for these rich beauties, which are big enough for two people to share (unless you’re under the mistaken impression that you’re splitting one with me).
They are far from the only selling point for this original little restaurant, however.
Located in the quaint 19th-century Mountainville Post Office/general store building, the place is brimming with atmosphere. It has a country cracker-barrel feel paired with sophisticated food prepared by chef/owner E.J. Laguerra, who started his restaurant in Middlesex before moving it to Hunterdon County three years ago. The menu, which changes weekly, is “kind of all over the place,” he says. “That’s the fun of doing it on your own: You have the freedom to change all the time.”
Service is country-style. Staffers don’t put on airs, but are responsive and responsible, elaborating where explanations are required and tending to patrons without hovering.
The chef, a graduate of the New York Restaurant School who worked at the Dining Room of the Hilton Short Hills, has a way with standards such as loin lamb chop ($) and French onion soup ($), but also is clever with his own creations, among them the wildly colorful tortellacci pasta ($). Tortellini stuffed with butternut squash and Parmesan is surrounded by aromatic chicken-apple sausage, sweet peas, sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms.
Laguerra doesn’t always use multitudinous moving parts. The no-gimmicks New England baked cod ($) coated with seasoned bread crumbs, for instance, is handled with tact and gets a nice lift from a tangy lemon beurre blanc. Wild mushroom crepes ($) are featherweights stuffed with crimini and shiitake mushrooms. White truffle crème accents a well-defined dish.
Appetizers range from pork potstickers with a sweet chili dipping sauce ($) to a rib-sticking white bean soup with sweet roasted garlic ($). In this relaxed atmosphere, you can pair these items with a salad — such as the arugula with roasted beets, goat cheese and pine nuts ($) — and make them the components of a light meal. Dinner salads, including a Cobb ($), also are available.
The menu is amenable to a group approach. Why not try the Maryland crab dip ($) or hummus ($) and have everyone at your table take a taste before they dig into their own dishes.
But whatever you order, don’t skip dessert. The cookies are the must-have items (you also can enjoy them as the most important elements of an ice cream sandwich, $), but there are other fun choices. Soda floats ($) and a classic hot fudge sundae ($) are in the lineup, along with apple-walnut pie ($) and a silky cheesecake ($).
If you’re coming on a weekend, reservations are a must, and it’s likely you will need to make them a week in advance. Despite its out-of-the-way location, a lot of people have discovered Gourmet Expressions — and it’s easy to figure out why they keep returning.

I didn't trust any sports instructor and shaped my figure every day. But. Again, thank her very much, she developed not only my figure, but also my brain. Being a really smart woman, my mother understood how the combination of a cute face and a sharp mind destructively affects men.

Exactly at 9 o'clock I stood with cancer in the hallway, with my back to the door. I heard the sound of the door opening and immediately, having received a strong kick on my bare bottom, I stretched out on. The floor.
