I place Minerva's at the top. The setting is beautiful, near the northern tip of Long Beach Island. Owner and hostess Emma Lapsansky has managed to create an environment both elegant and homey in a newly-renovated building with clean modern lines. Many pleasant surprises inside--like a eclectic library for her guests that reflects her own tastes as a reader of popular fiction and a retired history professor history. We found our fellow-guests to be interesting, friendly people who would make and enjoy good conversation. This place is a treasure.
