Restaurant review honors Princeton eateries

Zagat's annual survey ( of New Jersey restaurants recently named the best eateries in Princeton and ? surprise ? students probably will not be dining in any of the top three unless their parents come to town.Leading the pack of local restaurants are Lahiere's, Le Plumet Royal and Quilty's ? none of which offer meals within a price range that would be compatible with the average college student's limited budget.Charles Monaghan, a former food editor and restaurant reviewer at the Bergen County Record edited the New Jersey Zagat survey.Monaghan said he merely compiles the thousands of comments and ratings that pour in from amateur restaurant reviewers across the state, and added that he has dined in Princeton many times.He said he would advise students to head for Mexican Village, Theresa's Pizzetta Cafe and Triumph Brewing Co., restaurants that he said have a good "price to quality ratio."In contrast, an average dinner at Lahiere's, located on Witherspoon Street, runs between $40 and $50 per person, said David Wagner, the restaurant's general manager.
