With a nod to Marlene Dietrich, Friday Nights at Verjus Restaurant in Maplewood will have you “falling in love again” — with all your favorite world cuisines. The cozy spot, serving contemporary French/New American food, is consistently named as a top restaurant in New Jersey. But chef Charlie Tutino and wife Jane Witkin have been making every Friday night special in its own way.
