Big Mike’s Little Red Store in the Highlands holds the title for best BEC in New Jersey. The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch every day, with occasional pop-up dinners which never disappoint and always fill up. 

Everything is tailor-made. Chef Mike and his team hand-pick ingredients and meticulously prepare each meal to perfection. So, your BEC is by no means average at Big Mike’s Little Red Store. They offer a fine-dining experience, and serve a lot more than only high-caliper BECs!

You have clothing boutiques, luxury boutiques, and antique boutiques, think of The Red Store as a food boutique with a cool, local neighborhood vibe. The menu is usually never the same since meals are ingredient-based and created very much 'in the moment' by Chef Mike and his team. While they do bring back customer favorites, menus are built around occasions, the seasons, the ingredients available, and the team’s mood. 

The Red Store will host private occasions, and the team will cater events like weddings, birthday parties, intimate dinners at home, food festivals, etcetera. 

Anyone who has tasted the food prepared by Chef Mike, who has been to Big Mike’s Little Red Store, or who has had the pleasure to watch Chef Mike work knows that he creates art and puts it onto a plate for other people to not only enjoy, but savor.
