The Fig Tree
The Fig Tree closes in Hoboken, NJ
A bit more than three years after opening, The Fig Tree upscale restaurant on Park Ave. between 3rd & 4th announced their permanent closing:
“We regret to inform you that The Fig Tree is closing its doors. We would like to thank you, our customers, for your support and patronage.
We especially want to thank Chef Claude Chassagne and his staff, Andrew, Allejandro, Moises, Diego, Sandra and Christo for their creativity and dedication. These professionals have always strived to provide our guests with the finest dining experience.
Of course, we must also thank our front of the house staff-our servers, hosts, bussers, runners and mixologists-Peter, Paul, Marius, Melie, Khalid, Ronald, Aioffe and Chris for the most conscientious customer service.
No matter how wonderful the food or how warm and inviting the atmosphere, it is the server who manages a table and runs interference between the demands of a guest and the perfectionism of the kitchen that makes for a memorable evening.
We wish you well and in the words of Julia Child “Bon Appetit.”
The Fig Tree Family”
One less high-end dining experience available in Hoboken. Some say the restaurant was way over-priced for the modest Hoboken market – while others say the location (combined with the exorbitant pricing) led to their demise. I would say open a slider joint, but those have problems as well.

This used to be a failed bar called The Basement Bar, and years back a combo laundromat and bar.
The Fig Tree in Hoboken to serve Modern American Cuisine
The Fig Tree website says:
“THE FIG TREE, a fine dining restaurant and wine bar, will be opening soon at 306-308 Park Avenue. The restaurant will be dedicated to serving the best “Modern American Cuisine” – healthful food that is high quality, fresh, locally produced, seasonal and classically prepared. To complement the food, a variety of quality wines will be attentively served in an elegant ambient atmosphere.
The dining experience begins immediately upon entering THE FIG TREE. On the left hand side will be a small marble topped bar opening onto an inviting and cozy dining room, with blue-stone slated flooring, zinc topped tables and a lavish window seat.
The back of the restaurant will be home to two more dining rooms, both of which will be adjacent to a courtyard garden that can be viewed through three sets of French doors. Both dining rooms will have wide plank oak flooring, illuminated by crystal sconces and chandeliers. The larger of the two dining rooms will have a large open fireplace and a banquette running the length of the southern wall. The smaller dining room will be a private dining alcove separated from the main room through a set of glass fronted pocket doors, folding into the walls. This intimate alcove will be dominated by an antique mirrored buffet and a large communal dining table.”
