Barbès Restaurant – Hoboken, NJ – 1300 Park Ave.
Opening this fall at the long-vacant spot at 1300 Park Ave. is Barbès Restaurant, a “French-Moroccan Bistro.”
They currently have an NYC location on 36th St. in Murray Hill.
It is named after the famous Paris neighborhood at the foot of the Sacré-Cœur, known as a little piece of North Africa. To call their establishment Barbès is to pay tribute to the vibrant essence of that neighborhood, a melting pot of Parisian and North African culture, cuisine, music & decor.
While it’ll be nice for area residents, who claim to like “diversity” in their food choices – the old fashioned economy will dictate whether this place thrives or ends up on the doomed list. Look what happened to Porter Collins a couple blocks away – and that was a well-known and liked Hoboken restaurateur.
Description: Fancy restaurant.
