Marina Deli & Plus – Hoboken, NJ – Park & Sixth
We’re going to keep updating this post for the old La Casetta Pizza spot at Park and Sixth (539 Park) open, because we believe it will be a “revolving door” of businesses until someone gets it right. For now, it’s called “Marina Deli & Plus” (plus what exactly?)
Some residents actually enjoyed a cheap pizza place close by, but apparently boxes of cereal, coffee and cigarettes seem to be Marina’s business model. No pizza at the moment, although they owner mumbled something about “maybe in the future.” Sounds “promising.”
Here’s the thing. I’m sure there is a lengthy back story to why this even exists (probably something to do with illegal alien immigrants). But I could care less. The main thing here is (and it’s obvious) that this businesses is going to be doomed. For one, you have a guy with as much “enthusiasm” as a pall-bearer running the place, selling over-priced stuff you can easily get elsewhere from a more exciting place to patronize. And they took away the one good thing from the previous place, too!
When it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Oh well. Two points for trying at least.
