Food for Thought, Marlton

Tucked in the corner of Marlton Crossing Shopping Center on Route 73 resides the noble restaurant, Food for Thought (129 Rte 73 S. in Marlton). This Marlton mainstay features fine dining at healthy (though affordable at $15 and up) prices in a comfortably elegant setting. For a fancy night out on the town (without having to go into "Town", as in, Center City), Food for Thought might be right up your alley. You might even see a local sports celeb in there (last year I spotted Simon Gagne of the Flyers dining with his flame).

The entrees are designed to utilize fresh and organic ingredients, and the desserts certainly melt in your mouth (try the bread pudding!). It's a BYOB, so prepare your drink/meal combinations ahead when you consider that you may be in for anything from seafood to duck to lamb to steak. The menu is adjusted seasonally, so your favorite dish may not be there in a few months... or perhaps just in a slightly different recipe.

Once you enter the restaurant your are immediately in a different world, despite facing the parking lot and Champps Restaurant across the way-- a romantic scene it is not, though you could do worse. The decoration inside is very rich in color, and even the handtowels in the bathrooms are quite classy!

To get to Food for Thought from Route 73 heading south, you'll want to make a right onto Old Marlton Pike and make your first left into Marlton Crossing. Straight ahead in the corner is Food for Thought. Coming from Route 73 north, you'll want to bear right when you reach the Shell gas station and go onto Maple Ave. Make your first left behind the gas station and cross back over Route 73. Your first right will be for Marlton Crossing. Follow that all the way around until you pass Champps on the right, and keep going a little further and you'll see Food for Thought ahead of you.

For reservations (recommended), or just to chat cuisine, call (856) 797-1126.
