Store by store, restaurant by restaurant, the old-timers are coming back to Sea Bright, a town where not one was spared the trauma of Hurricane Sandy.

From Angler’s Marina to Yumi, from Woody’s Ocean Grille to Northshore Menswear to Bain’s Hardware,  merchants have restarted their businesses as quickly as their bank balances would allow.

When the event known as Taste of Sea Bright returns for the latest in a successful series of culinary tours on Saturday,  it will serve as a reminder that Monmouth County’s most stylishly slender borough knows how to eat very well indeed — and that, in the words of Sea Bright Business Alliance director Joan Osgoodby, “this town is not just a summer romance.”
