Stage House’s Scotch Plains location is quite possibly one of NJ’s oldest. The building was built in 1737 and rumored to have hosted George Washington during the Revolutionary era. Nearly three centuries later, the 2019 Stage House offers great American cuisine in a comfortable setting with exceptional service.

Another Revolutionary fixture in Central Jersey sits right on Main Street in Cranbury. The Cranbury Inn was established in 1750 and has experienced George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Marquee de Lafayette, Mme. Chiang Kai-Shekh, Albert Einstein, the Dutch Royal family, and was even a part of the Underground Railroad. Now a banquet hall and restaurant, Cranbury Inn dishes out great food and a historic experience!

Client Spotlight...PJ Whelihan's, Official Wing of Wing Bowl 24

So everyone in Philadelphia has either went to, heard of, loved or loathed the Wing Bowl...

Love it or hate it…It’s a Philly Tradition of early morning debauchery and an over consumption of a much loved, buffalo sauce covered treat and we are proud to say that the official wing for this year comes from long time clients of NCR Aloha AHSPJ Whelihan’s!

If you aren’t familiar with wing bowl…Here’s a bit of history…

Wing Bowl is an annual eating contest founded in 1993 by Philadelphia talk radio hosts Angelo Cataldi and Al Morganti from WIP. The event pits competitive eaters against each other in a chicken wing eating contest & is traditionally held on the Friday before Super Bowl. The event, which began as only a on air radio promotion, has grown to encompass television, internet & a contest for women who are termed “the Wingettes“. It is currently held at the Wells Fargo Center and is still to this day broadcasted live on WIP. Growing from 100 people in a hotel lobby to the now astounding 20,000 people since it’s start.

Here’s a bit about NCR Aloha AHS Client…PJ Whelihan’s…

The original PJ Whelihan’s Pub opened in 1983, over 2 decades ago in Allentown, PA as a family owned neighborhood pub. Now with over 15 locations throughout PA & NJ including the Liacouras & the Wells Fargo Center plus the PJ Whelihan’s Wing Truck. They also own many other multi concept bars & restaurants including The Pour House, The Chop House & Treno Pizza. So whether you are in the mood for some sports, wing & a beer or a prime rib dinner and a nice red wine. They have it covered from every angle.

PJ Whelihan’s uses NCR Aloha from AHS products throughout all locations…

Bar Bombon Philadelphia Restaurant

Photo taken from ADJUA FISHER of Philly Mag

More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? What are the best new restaurants? What’s everyone talking about? While the Eater 38 is a crucial resource covering old standbys and neighborhood essentials across the city, it is not a chronicle of the ‘it’ places of the moment.

For those, we have the Eater Heatmap, a perpetually changing entity, constantly keeping the Philly scene fresh.

We’re happy to say that two of these fantastic new restaurants are Aloha NCR users!

Anastasi Raw Bar – 4161 Main St in Manayunk

The Anastasi family opened up their third location with a concept they’ve been nailing for generations: fresh seafood, cooked beautifully. Anastasi Raw Bar has, of course, a wonderful selection of oysters and chilled seafood, but it’s Chef Ken Wallace’s culinary chops that really make the place a destination. Delicate crabmeat créme brulée, fat grilled Louisiana oysters, and twice-cooked grilled octopus are all examples of the talent behind the kitchen — which would make sense considering Wallace has worked all around Europe, and most notably, at London’s The Fat Duck.

Bar Bombón – 133 S. 18th St, Philly

Vegan hero Nicole Marquis’s latest project is a testament to her latin roots. Puerto Rican empanadas, arepas, and enchiladas are made vegan for a 40 seat restaurant and bar (a staggering number, considering the small space it once was as Crumbs Bakeshoppe). If you don’t have time to sit, there’s a take-out window for food, coffee, and juice.
