This was the third visit to 55 Main and the best so far. The soft shell crabs were a seasonal special along with a Thai carrot soup. The soup was very tasty and a nice balance of creaminess and a touch of lime juice. The coconut and carrot flavors blended nicely and made for a pleasant starter. The soft shell crabs were lightly breaded and fried, sealing in the juiciness of the crab. It could have been a bit crispier, but was good nonetheless. Went on a Wednesday and was no problem to get a table, but have been turned away in the past on a busy Saturday. The decor is nice and inviting. Service is good and the chef came out to talk to us at the table. Very friendly. Will plan on going back more often.

If they can do this with a sandwich - I can't wait to check out dinner. It was a bright and sunny afternoon, across the menu my eyes locked on the jerk chicken wrap, it was love at first bite. And it was big, very big: I loved that sandwich but i couldn't do it justice and it had to be wrapped to come home. Every bite had a changing, excellent flavor; a perfect balance between the spicy (not barbeque, slightly creamy) sauce, the barbequed chicken, and the mango, We ate outside - extremely comfortable seats for outdoors - and people stopped to admire my beautiful sandwich; partially because I was raving so to my companion about how good the next bite had been compared to the one before. I've eaten around the world, in big and small, famous and backwater, fabulous and flabulous and this has to be one of the top five items ever.

Looking for 55 Main??? Drive too fast, and you will go right past the nondescript storefront restaurant on Main Street in Flemington. But if you miss it, you’ll be missing some of the best food in Flemington. Once inside this casual restaurant, the creation of chef/owner Jonas Gold, you can choose from a creative menu filled with wonderful dishes at reasonable prices. And since the restaurant is a BYOB, it is an even better value. The appetizer list is long and varied - one could make a meal of appetizers and be happy. Try the calamari and oysters. Steaks are cooked to perfection, portions are generous, and the wait staff aims to please. Be sure to save room for dessert. There is ample parking behind the restaurant, with easy access to the rear entrance.

Absolutely terrific food and wonderful service. Kierstan was literally one of the best waitresses we have ever had. The food was off the hook! We had a group of six and we had an awesome time. Everything about 55 Main was FLAWLESS - Highly recommended.
