Now, I live within a walking distance from F &J and I go out a lot, so it is surprising that I haven't been there for 2 years.Things chnaged and for the worse. Food was sub par; the salad has gotten smaller and had fewer ingredients; the waitress was getting the order wrong and kept bringing us incorrect dishes. My friend ordered linguini with red, got the white and when the right one was finally delivered it was awful.The clams were the size of a human palm and tough. It was difficult to cut them with a knife. Wherever we go, linguini with clams is always served with little necks; they are tender and slide off the shell easily. F & J uses the chowders which obvioulsy are much cheaper and are totally inedible. Overall, it it was a very disappointing experience - with poor service (the waitress was very nice just paid no attention to what was being ordered) and inferior quality food. It might be another 2 years before I walk down the street to eat there. I want to state that prices are very reasonable so it was not a matter of money. It appears that since F & J has been concentrating on catering end of the business & large parties, the quality of food for the main dining room has been slipping. Just another average or even below average Morris Park Italian place. There are other much better and more authentic.
