A new cut for this gentleman barber
After owning and operating Evil Fades Barbershop in Millstone since 2011, Andrew Evilsizor has expanded his “true gentlemen’s club” concept to Red Bank. Located on Monmouth Street, Evilsizor’s shop offers luxury cuts, shaves, and an awesomely guy (and gal) friendly atmosphere. Evilsizor, who picked up his first pair of clippers at 13 and instantly found his passion, started cutting friends’ hair in a garage while building a following. Today, he focuses on maintaining old fashioned techniques in a modern age, including our fave, the “steam shave.” 30 Monmouth Street, Red Bank,

For the past six months, Iron Chef America winner and celebrity chef Michael Symon has been serving his own personal ode to Italian food at Angeline in the Borgata. Offering simple, bold, and fresh takes on classics, his spacious kitchen features a menu of staples like linguine and clams and home style lasagna, alongside a variety of wood fi red meats and seafood. The Chew cohost designed a menu replete with nostalgia (every meal is somehow tied to his Sicilian heritage) and one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes, not surprisingly, is his mother Angeline’s Sunday sauce. Reservations are not required, but recommended, especially on the weekends.
