My name is Vanetta Anderson and I am the owner of Top Knotch Soultry Delights located in Union, NJ. Fun fact: My first real job was at Red Lobster on Route 22 in Union as a hostess and now I am the owner of one the best soul food restaurants in NJ right across the street from the same Red Lobster! Talk about full circle!
I have ALWAYS had a passion for cooking and creating meals since I was a little girl. Every weekend I would playfully turn my parent’s kitchen and dining room into a restaurant for the family and little did I know that was just the beginning.
In 2011 I established Top Knotch Soultry Delights as a catering business out of Piscataway, NJ. Along with the catering, I participated as a vendor at numerous street fairs, festivals, expos, and pop up shops. I began to develop an increasingly large customer base from these events and decided to follow my dream and open my restaurant. In August of 2019 I brought my mom on as a partner and we opened our restaurant!
We are a full service restaurant offering outstanding dine in & outdoor seating, take out and catering services. Our restaurant is also available for private events such as birthday parties, baby showers/sprinkles, gender reveals, anniversaries, repass and more.
I truly believe that great quality soul food should not be hard to come by or overly expensive. We provide our customers with delicious traditional soul food cuisine that is made with all fresh ingredients as well as an array of tasty desserts all made on the premises. Our customers just cannot get enough of us and we look forward to the opportunity for you to experience us as well.
