Should restaurants go on vacation?

Maru: Another Hoboken restaurant closed for vacation

Earlier this summer – we debated on whether it’s appropriate for a restaurant (like Dino & Harry’s) to close for an extended period (i.e., vacation).

More recently, Hoboken411 received a few emails about Maru Japanese Restaurant (219 Washington St.) being closed (phone disconnected, etc.)

Further inspection revealed that a sign on the front of the establishment indicated “Vacation – open September 10.” The brown paper in the window suggested that perhaps some minor renovations are taking place during their down time.

Maru Sushi Hoboken NJ closed until September 10 2012

Dino & Harry’s closes in Hoboken, NJ (temporarily)

6/28/2012:

Dino & Harry’s is a very popular restaurant / steakhouse up on 14th & Garden Streets uptown. And in case you didn’t know – they’ve been closed for the past week, and will remain closed until July 9th.

What restaurant closes for three weeks like that? Is the summer season that slow that it actually loses money by staying open?

Why no mention of Lisa’s closing for a week? They’ve closed for a week each summer every year since I moved here in 2007.

amazing,how so many eaterys can close for vacation long periods of time with the high
rent on the main st aka washington st..The best is every time Biamcamano’s comes back
from Italy or a cruise,their prices increase…still good food ..[quote comment=”216837″]I’ve mentioned other Italian delis like Biancamano’s…. Guess it’s a bit different with a single-chef or family-owned deli vs. a larger kitchen with multiple chefs and larger staff, management, etc.[/quote]

Not sure if you go shopping or what rock you live under, but the price of food over the past 2-3 years has skyrocketed. whether is gas related, droughts, etc…. I’m sure they get affected even more. They must somehow continue to offer you those tasty sandwhiches.[quote comment=”216843″]amazing,how so many eaterys can close for vacation long periods of time with the high rent on the main st aka washington st..The best is every time Biamcamano’s comes back from Italy or a cruise,their prices increase…still good food ..[/quote]

nbm3…yeah your right…matter of opinion and choice..notice the gas prices,jumped 35 or more cents in a month..labor day is near.I was aluding to price increases after every vacation..The food is great regardless. droughts are in the mid west. corn is grown here
in jersey..tomatos jersey and long island. Its about opinion and nothing else.the focus was about at least 6 or more vacations a year and well deserved. food is still great.[quote comment=”216863″]Not sure if you go shopping or what rock you live under, but the price of food over the past 2-3 years has skyrocketed. whether is gas related, droughts, etc….
