Asbury Park brings to mind the Stone Pony, where Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band got their start. But those who make a Boss-inspired pilgrimage should also stop in at Porta. The restaurant’s focus is authentic Neapolitan pizza, which is offered alongside dishes like the parmigiana polenta with a velvety soft-boiled egg, broccoli rabe and hollandaise sauce. While you won’t find Bruce playing, there’s live jazz and lines out the door — people waiting for the $5 mimosa carafes available at the bar.
Special Dishes: Carbonara Pizza
