The Golden Carrot

The Golden Carrot – Hoboken, NJ – 1102 Washington Street

Opening in May at 1102 Washington Street is The Golden Carrot.

The Golden Carrot Hoboken NJ Jewelry Store 1102 Washington Street

What is The Golden Carrot?

The Golden Carrot is a jewelry type store. The former business in this spot was also a jewelry store named Jewelry by Peter, which “petered out” relatively quickly.

High hopes for the newest jewelry proprietor to take a chance at winning over regular customers. Maybe they’ll have the right mix of trendy and value which I think is the name of the game these days.

Swing by May 1st for more.

Ricardo Roig Gallery

Grand opening this weekend

In case you missed Ricardo Roig’s opening at The Gallery at Garden Street Lofts this past Wednesday – you can attend his own art gallery opening (252 1st St.) this Saturday, April 18th from 7pm to 10pm!

Ricardo Roig Gallery – 252 First Street

Good news, art lovers! Local phenom Ricardo Roig is planning to open up his own studio at 252 First Street next month!

This is great, because area artists often have to rely on other people to present their works (and either take too much of a cut, or they even go out of business.)

Ricardo says: “My images come from life, dreams, visions, hallucinations, nightmares, but are always experienced through a specific atmospheric space. I attempt to evoke these experiences in my artwork, a representation of my world- through my eyes, mind and heart. My art is my elevated form of communication and allows me to express and understand my emotions in hopes of finding peace. I hope my art uplifts, challenges people to think, and always remind us of our shared humanity in this natural world for which we are all born into.”

Spa Restaurant

Spa Diner under new ownership in Hoboken

A couple years ago, the Spa Diner was included in a Hoboken411 list of local businesses that were up for sale.

Well, it’s time to close that thought – as “The Spa” is officially under new ownership. The operation will continue “as is” for the foreseeable future. So no worries about a favorite “dirty spoon” closing anytime soon!

Listen to owner Sean McGarr talk about the Spa Diner – in an interview we did with him yesterday with Hoboken Internet Radio. Great stuff (you can also listen to the full interview to hear about their other exciting Hoboken projects – including the exciting House of ‘Que authentic Texas style BBQ restaurant this summer!)

Full Interview:

Del Frisco’s Grille

Del Frisco’s Grille Hoboken coming to 221 River Street – Fall 2015

As we told you this past December, Del Frisco’s Grille is definitely coming to the new Pearson building downtown (official address: 221 River Street), and they hope to be open later this year (“fall.”)

Here’s a cookie-cutter description for the new “bar and grill:”

“Modern, inviting, stylish and fun, Del Frisco’s will take the classic bar and grill to new heights, drawing inspiration from bold flavors and market-fresh ingredients. The energetic bar, a destination in itself, will create a buzz throughout the restaurant and sets the stage for an amazing night out. The patio will provide the perfect perch to catch a glimpse of the action and offers some of the best al fresco dining. It’ll be your place to eat with a friend and catch up on the latest or make new friends at the bar.

Del Frisco’s Grille uses local ingredients alongside new classics that are easy to share with friends: Wood Oven-Baked Flatbreads, Cheesesteak Egg Rolls, and Ahi Tacos. The menu also includes a selection of prime steaks, hearty salads, formidable sandwiches and chef-inspired entrees.”

Nothin’ better than a “formidable” sandwich, right?

Francesca’s – Hoboken, NJ – 318 Washington Street

Francescas coming soon to Hoboken New JerseyReplacing the doomed Aroma Chinese restaurant at 318 Washington Street is Francesca’s – a ladies apparel and accessories store.

Francesca’s has over 500 locations already (in just 15 years since opening their first boutique in Houston, Texas.)

“Our boutiques offer an eclectic mix of carefully-curated clothing, bright baubles, bold accessories, and playful gifts that are as fun to give as they are to receive. Boutiques reveal an array of new arrivals almost daily, so you’ll always discover something special and amazing on every visit. And because we are a boutique, we only carry a few of each item, so everything you find is uniquely yours. You can kiss seeing your outfit twin at the party goodbye!”

This will be their 25th location in New Jersey (with only one in Manhattan on Broadway).

They’re also hiring “associates” to come work in the store as well (must have a “creative flair” for fashion.)

Gotta love that “local charm” Hoboken has, right?
