To celebrate their 15th anniversary in Hoboken at 953 Bloomfield Street (corner of 11th St) Chef Anthony Pino decided to renovate his restaurant and re-opened with a new look last week. The space has been refreshed with clean, modern lines, red tiles and handcrafted wood tables. The amazing part is this was done in just one week to minimize impact to the customers and restaurant in terms of revenue. Now, this very popular restaurant will be known simply as Anthony David’s and much like the Trattorias Chef Pino visited on a recent trip to Italy, it will be open all day, to serve the neighborhood anything from coffee, breakfast, a small bite, to a full dinner.
Here are the new hours (7 days a week):
- 7:00-9:00am, take-out coffee and pastries
- 9:00am to 3:00pm, take-out breakfast, sandwiches, and daily Brunch in the restaurant ‘
- 3:00pm to 5pm, a new Antipasto menu (also available during Brunch and as part of Dinner menu)
- 5:00pm to 10:30pm, Dinner 7 nights a week, including Mondays.
Anthony David’s opened its doors at the charming corner of Tenth and Bloomfield Streets in Hoboken in 1997, not long after entrepreneurial Chef Pino graduated from Johnson & Wales. A bustling business in quality prepared foods led to a sellout daily brunch service that continues to this day, along with full-service catering arm AD Catering|Events. In 2002, in an expanded space, The Dining Room at Anthony David’s began its run as Hoboken’s favorite location for intimate dinners and special occasions.
As Chef Pino looks ahead to his next 15 years of business in his hometown,he is thrilled to introduce a new Anthony David’s to Hoboken, all under the simple name, Anthony David’s. His inspiration comes in part from the Trattorias Chef Pino visited in Italy: traditionally less formal spots for neighborhood dining, for a coffee, or a snack, to purchase food to go; a go to spot for any time of the day or evening.
In this vein, Anthony David’s is now open for dinner seven days a week, including Mondays, and will serve a light Antipasto menu before dinner service, from 3:00 to 5:00pm (also available during brunch and dinner service). The Antipasto menu offers value and flavor: Market Vegetables (butternut squash and honey, roasted fennel and olives); Artisan Cheese (Taleggio, Robiola, Cacio Pecorino, and more); Cured Meats (Trufaseca sausage, smoked duck, and Prosciutto de Parma from the new Italian slicer). Guests can choose 4 for $20, 5 for $25 or share 6 for $30. Rilettes (rabbit, chicken liver, pork belly, lardo) are also available. Antipasto is also a casual, to be shared element of Anthony David’s dinner menu, now served 7 days a week.
Chef Pino’s new inspiration makes evenings more relaxed and inviting here: with seasonal Autumn Panzanella (roast chicken, focaccia, butternut, shaved Brussels); hearty pastas like 3 Pork Gravy (cream, English peas, Pecorino, Cavatelli) and Wild Boar Ragu (Cipolinis, Pappardelle, Parmesan); or entrées like Pesce di Oggi (line caught and Autumn inspired) or House Lamb Sausage (truffle potatoes, Bijou farm green grown on a nearby rooftop).
Anthony David’s 7-day, all-day brunch will continue to serve its myriad selection of Eggs Benedicts along with other favorites. Meat and Cheese Baguettes, available in the updated to go menu, also include desirable choices from the Antipasto menu.
The Anthony David’s space itself has morphed from its cozy market feel to a sleek, chic space with clean modern lines, designed by architect Robert Feinstein of Studio One Architects, who also built Chef Pino’s striking Bin 14 wine bar. Muted dark grays and whites, warmly lit, are enlivened by bright red tiles. An extended marble dining counter for barista and antipasto service will feature the Berkel vertical prosciutto slicer that Chef Pino purchased in Sorrento. Guests wanting to sip a quick espresso will favor a high table in the bay window facing 11th Street. Simple wood tables are unadorned with linens, and the always knowledgeable staff will sport a coordinated new look too.The new Anthony David’s brings a welcoming, everyday Trattoria feeling to a fresh new space in the heart of Hoboken.
