Spectacular new listing in Apple Ridge, Wall Township!

Marina Grille(APP.com ~ May 9, 2017)  BELMAR – The borough on Tuesday unveiled the latest piece of its redevelopment plan with the opening of a $6 million restaurant overlooking the Shark River.

 The Marina Grille is being run by Chefs International, which constructed the borough-owned building under the agreement with Belmar. The borough is leasing the property to Chefs International for $250,000 a year initially.

The borough expects to receive $24 million over the 50-year term of the contract, Mayor Matt Doherty said.

The 12,000-square-foot facility and sprawling outdoor patio will have year-round casual dining. It’s adjacent to the 9th Ave Pier, a seasonal restaurant the company has been running since 2012.

“It helps make Belmar a destination away from the beach,” Doherty said.

The Marina Grille will share a concessionaire’s permit with 9th Ave Pier that allows both to sell alcohol but prohibits the permit from being sold or transferred.

Doherty said the Marina Grille will generate 200 jobs.

Chefs International owns Jack Baker’s Wharfside Restaurant in Point Pleasant Beach, Baker’s Water Street Bar & Grille in Toms River, and eight other restaurants in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida. And it has been expanding in Belmar, buying Connolly Station and renaming it the Anchor Tavern.

black trumpetMemorial Day Weekend has arrived and the weather is cooperating nicely. Marking the start of what should be a glorious summer at the Jersey Shore, there is no end to fun things to do here. If eating is a big part of your summer entertainment, Monmouth and Ocean Counties are home to some of the most delectable restaurants. And, what could be better than enjoying a most spectacular meal while also taking in the incredible waterfront views?

Jersey Shore In Motion has rated their top 25 waterfront restaurants, and you can find them by clicking here. I think they nailed the top 25, although I probably would have numbered them differently. Give them a try, and see what you think. The fun is in the tasting!

jsrw_logo-nov1Believe it or not Jersey Shore Restaurant Week is upon us once again. Beginning Friday, November 7, through Sunday, November 16, you get to sample all the best fare the Jersey Shore has to offer and at a great price. Enjoy a 3 course meal with your choice of an appetizer, entree and dessert for either $20.14 or $30.14. If you are thinking that this is awesome, but you have hit all the usual restaurant week hot spots, well you would be wrong. As the Jersey Shore tradition grows, so does the list of participating restaurants. This season they added 11 new eateries.

If you are looking for a great meal with an awesome view, the first place on your list should be the Black Trumpet in Spring Lake. It is located right on the beach next to the Breakers. Chef Mark has a vast menu of steaks, fish, seafood and pastas. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. For a little over $30 for a gourmet meal, this one is a no brainer!  And, with his seasonal liquor license, you can also enjoy a bottle of wine from his extensive wine list or a cocktail.

If you are looking some ribs or BBQ chicken, head on over to Jersey Shore BBQ. Located at 819 Belmar Plaza in Belmar, they will offer selections for both $20.14 and $30.14 (The $30.14 menu is offered ONLY on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays). Great prices at the Jersey Shore’s best BBQ!

If you are looking for something a little more casual, check out Simko’s Bar & Grill in Brielle. They offer a world-class menu and you won’t believe what you can get for $20.14. Simko’s is also offering a $10 lunch special during Restaurant Week – every day except Sunday. An incredible value! Simko’s is designed with a very comfortable atmosphere and their bar area has 25 TVs for you to watch all your sporting events. They have a bar area and a select wine list.
