MONTCLAIR - Several New Jersey communities are ranked high on a list of the best restaurants compiled by New Jersey Monthly.

Montclair is one town with three restaurants on the list of the 25 top spots.

The chef-owner of one of those restaurants, Blu, says the community appreciates good food and that has spurred more restaurants to open there. "We have a lot of restaurants and we have a variety of restaurants here," says Zod Arifai. "So it's not just American type of restaurants, but we have restaurants from all over the world here."

Princeton is the only other town with as many eateries on the list.
