A developing, modern community 25 miles outside of Manhattan.

Welcome to Metuchen

The suburban borough of Metuchen is known as the “doughnut hole” of New Jersey, as the entire district is surrounded by Edison Township. This small, pocket community is bursting with historic buildings, especially on Main Street, where locals flock to “mom-and-pop” hardware stores built in the early 1900s, delicious restaurants, and stately banks established in the 1800s. Metuchen is loaded with unique gems throughout the neighborhood: you’ll find a mix of traditional and modern homes along densely packed streets in the downtown district or along wide streets of single-family homes with sprawling front yards along the leafy outskirts of the central business district. 
As a developing neighborhood, Metuchen is maintaining its historic architecture while adding more modern residential spaces, dining options, and boutique shops. There are a variety of ethnic restaurants bringing culture and diversity to the community, and residents enjoy an old-school, charming way of life in this unique pocket of New Jersey. 

Visit Hatch 44 Cafe, a Metuchen Chamber Business of the Year, for breakfast “made with love.” Enjoy fresh meals to share in their quaint and cozy space. Lola Latin Bistro celebrates Latin fusion cuisine and brings authentic, flavorful dishes to the residents of Metuchen. They feature a rotating, seasonal menu made from locally sourced ingredients. Another favorite culinary destination is the upscale Phattra Thai Restaurant for the ultimate Thai dining experience. The Brown Stone Bar and Grill offers something for everyone in their expansive dining space. Open seven days a week, the Brown Stone hosts weekly DJ parties at night, sports parties on the weekend, and specializes in offering the highest-quality food in a vibrant and fun atmosphere.
