Critics, upstate: Poppiti enjoys Nonna Ristorante’s stuzzichini menu of small plates that is served all day. “Owner and chef Chris Peters is so creative and talented, and he’s constantly tweaking the menu,” Poppiti says. The menu offers pasta dishes such as gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream, vegetables like grilled asparagus, and seafood dishes that include crab cakes and applewood-smoked bacon shrimp. Poppiti’s favorite: scallops wrapped in bacon with a whiskey-liqueur reduction. (Del. 4 and Harmony Road, Newark, 737-9999)
