It seems the further out Ridge Road West you go, the more Italian it gets. By the time you pass Ridgemont Plaza and Long Pond Road you are in "Red Country." Red is the sort of short, red headed (rug), congenial owner and host of Red Fedeli's Brook House Restaurant in the Tops plaza. Say hello to Red if you spot him. He let me take this photo and then joked to someone at the bar that "I would probably put the photo up on the thing" and of course I have.

The Brook House was located in an old house on Ridge Road for 20 years and moved to this great big new place in 1996. The food is not fancy but very good. You won't find spinach lasagna or alfredo sauces or even a dark beer here, The prices are very reasonable and the place is stocked with old photos, autographed to Red. The one in the center below is from Joe Altobelli. There's a framed Godfather poster and a giant photo of Al Pacino on the wall as well.

Brook House: Red sauce on pasta, more red sauce on pasta, even more red sauce on pasta! I can make just as good red sauce on pasta at home, and I'm Irish!

Anonymous Contributions: My wife and I have been going to the Brook House for years, ever since it was in the old house. The food has always been great, but of course I always order the same thing (Gnocchi DiBella). No complaints, ever. My wife loves the Sauteed Artichoke Hearts as an appetizer. Whenever Red's there, he always greets us by name... that shows how much we eat there! Every birthday, anniversary, "special date"... that's where we go. Call us creatures of habit but we know what we like!
