The Inn at 75 South

Does anyone know anything about this restaurant? Is it the same oweners as the previous restaurant...I think it was called South Street Victorian? They have a website, although no prices.

    1. They've been advertising. For the past few weeks, full page in "The Transcript." No mention of new ownership. I detest when websites do not include prices.

      Curious, so I just called. The gentleman I spoke with was extremely nice when answering my questions, though he didn't know why there are no prices on the website menu. Yes, new owners and a new chef (not one of the owners). First courses in the low teens. Mains from $20's to a high of $39. 4 course prix fixe @ $39. I should have written down the price for the 5 course prix-fixe, but I think he said in the high $40's.

      Anyone want to take one for the team? Shabby?

        It is on the list, and now that I see the menu has steak, buddy hubby will be happy when I ask him to take me out on the town Freehold Style! LOL

        RGR - Random Side Note - Gave some friends your NYC tour - they were delighted.
        You sure know NYC! Impressive!

            So glad your friends enjoyed the tour. I was born and bred on the "old"LES. Every time I'm there, as was the case this past Monday, the changes still amaze me. These days, we split our time between NJ and NYC.

            As I've said before, you've added immeasurably to this board with your adventurous spirit and love of eating all sorts of foods. I look forward to your report about The Inn and hope it's a positive experience.

        1. From Cafe Calore's Facebook page: Cafe Colore is happy to announce that our second restaurant in Freehold, "The Inn at 75 South", is now open.

            Suddenly feeling warm and fuzzy about an adventure to the Inn at 75!

              Those are the same folks that have run the restaurants at 75 South and Metropolitan cafe for over 15 years...

              1. re: equal_Mark

                Mark, the people from Cafe Colore "broke away" from the other restaurants a while ago, maybe 12-18 months. Until recently the only restaurant they operated was Cafe Colore.

                  This could be a great spot in town. This location has never held a good restaurant so I wish them luck and look forward to trying it after vacations are over. Looking forward to a review from someone.

                  1. re: gailelyson

                    Actually, the original restaurant, 75 South, which occupied that location many years ago was quite good when it opened but eventually went downhill.

                    1. re: RGR

                      I agree. 75 South was very good when Tim Murphy was the chef. It went downhill after he departed. It would be nice if it was good once again.

                      1. re: Bossa_Nova

                        I agree the original 75 South was very good. I especially liked the soups, sauces and presentations. When Vivas first opened in Belmar it sort of reminded me of 75 South...


                        1. re: equal_Mark

                          Still no reviews?
                          I may try it tonight.

                          1. re: Pink Pepper

                            They have been doing a lot of advertising, including a big billboard on Route 9. If you do decide to "take one for the team," Pink Pepper, I'll be interested in reading your report.

          2. I just looked at the website & the menu now has prices.

              this building is practically at the end of my block and I haven't been in it in10+ years of living here. Maybe it's time .. and I have a b-day later this month.

              1. re: mbw1024

                Hey RJR- I was born and bred on the old "LES" also. Whereabouts for you? Also, can you recommend any great restaurants there?

                  Presuming you meant me (that would be R*G*R)....

                  Since Tides closed a few months ago, I don't have any restaurant recs other than the legendary Katz's (where it's all about the pastrami).

                  1. re: RGR

                    oops sorry RGR. My spouse loves the pastrami at Katz's. Whenever we are in the area, thats the go to place for him. Where did you grow up? I was from Knickerbocker Village on Monroe and Cherry Streets.

                    1. re: charmel

                      I just heard yesterday that The Inn at 75 South has closed.
