    Chef Heidi put the “p” in personalable. What eating establishment’s chef calls you and asks what type of fish would you like? My parents and I are from New England and cod and sowrdfish are commonly available fish selections at most restaurants. It is difficult to find either fish at restaurants in NJ. Chef Heidi offered to make cod for us and it was delicious. The homey atmosphere and Jamie our server made our first Tulip Tree Cafe visit both comfortable and special. It reminded me of the many bed and breakfast experiences I have had in VT, NH and MI. So glad my good friend ME introduced us to the experience.❤️
