I have been critical of The Laurel in Maplewood Village for not being open as much as it could be, but that did not stop The New York Times from giving it a whirl.

This review appears in Sunday's paper and seems to like the food, but not the atmosphere. Oh well, good work owner Lauren and hope this draws more business.

Among the review's highlights:

LEAVE it to a former vegan to produce one of the best hamburger platters in northern New Jersey. Lauren Dwyer, whose cookbook collection now includes Fergus Henderson’s “The Whole Beast: Nose to Tail Eating,” serves it at the Laurel, the tiny but excellent restaurant she opened in May in Maplewood.
