WESTFIELD, NJ — Amuse, a French brasserie located in Downtown Westfield, earned a rating of “Very Good” in The New York Times in an article by Marissa Rothkopf Bates available online today.

“Mr. Reycraft’s years of working at Chez Catherine, Westfield’s notable old-school French restaurant, along with his training at the French Culinary Institute, is evident in simple, well-executed main dishes such as the tender rack of lamb,” the food critic wrote of chef and owner C.J. Reycraft, a Westfield resident. 

The article is titled “French Without the Fuss at Amuse,” and the author wrote,“Amuse’s influences are French, but its blond wood interior, cool modern lines and relaxed staff make it clear that Mr. Reycraft is intent on taking the haughty out of haute cuisine.”
