The Chippery sails again in Fanwood

New digs, new look, but the same old soul-satisfying fish and seafood.

Plainfield's favorite fish shack is open again.

Even if it's not in Plainfield, the Chippery on South Avenue in Fanwood was always packed with Queen City residents indulging their cravings for fried fish and seafood, served with 'chips' and real British malt vinegar to give just the right tang!

On a trip over to my Allstate broker recently, I discovered that the long-abandoned 'shack' had been rebuilt completely and reborn as the Seafare Chippery. Same old menu and friendly service with a great new and attractive space -- including a spotless modern restroom! Prices have gone up a bit, but consider that it was closed for several years and everything else has gone up in the meanwhile also.

The new Seafare Chippery is at the same old location, 383 South Avenue. You can call ahead for takeout: (908) 288-7741 or visit them online at, where you can view the complete menu and prices. Note: they also now cater.
