The BYOB dining options in Belmar, New Jersey, have expanded with the opening of F Street Social Craft Pizza and Kitchen at 1002 Main Street (next to Flames Brazilian Steakhouse). The restaurant's name pays homage to the early days of Belmar's downtown business district, when Main Street was originally known as F Street.
F Street Social serves both lunch and dinner, with an extensive and diverse menu that includes appetizers; homemade soups; big salads; sandwiches; charcoal-grilled burgers; pasta, meat, chicken, and seafood entrées; family-style meals; and house-made desserts. There's also an $8.00 children's menu. The pizza menu at F Street Social in Belmar is equally as vast, with your choice of ultra-thin crust or hand-tossed thin crust. Pizzas come in two sizes, a 10-inch personal pizza or the 16-inch large pie. All pizzas are cooked in a specially designed wood-burning oven that the owners imported from Italy.

In addition to traditional Margherita pizzas and white pies, the signature pizzas at F Street Social include options such as Berg's Pastrami Reuben pie; pepperoni with imported hot honey drizzle; Garden State primavera; buffalo chicken; Grandma pie; vodka-sauce pizza with add-on chicken or shrimp; zesty arugula; pesto pie; chicken or eggplant Parmesan pizza; and plain pizza with ala carte toppings (pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, peppers, onions, extra cheese, pineapple, ham, bacon, meatballs, chicken, jalapenos).
My first visit to F Street Social was for a late lunch/early dinner with a friend. I ordered the crock of Guinness French onion soup and the garlic shrimp appetizer. My friend chose the grilled chicken sandwich, which had arugula, roasted red peppers, fresh Mozzarella, and balsamic glaze, with a side of hand-cut French fries. We both enjoyed our meals, and I will be going back soon with some other friends to celebrate upcoming birthdays.
F Street Social has a front dining room with tables along the wall and high-top seating in the middle of the space. The room is framed with a large garage door that opens to Main Street for outside dining when the weather is nice. The restaurant also has a spacious party room that can be booked for private events, as well as first-come, first-served counter seating at the bar adjacent to the main dining space. Dinner reservations are recommended, and food may be ordered for takeout.
