New Restaurant in Pierre's Bistro Location -- Morristown Area

I've seen that there is a new restaurant opening on Route 202 in Harding where Pierre's used to be. Has anyone heard anything about it?

  1. I drive by all the time and they seem to be doing a ton of work, but I haven't heard boo about who's taking over and what it's supposed to be like.

    1. I took a detour on Thursday and did a slow drive-by of this place. According to the sign on the building, the new restaurant will be called Market and will be "opening soon". I don't know if there is any connection to Market in Montclair.

      1. Announced this week in a local bulletin: "the town council approved the transfer of a liquor license to owner (202 Bistro Bar LLC) which will do business as “Market Restaurant.” The buyer paid the seller $125,000 for the license."

        Someone I know called the Montclair restaurant (called Market) and was told that they were not moving or opening another location, so no connection there.

          I'm shocked at how inexpensive that liquor license sold for. A few years ago, two liquor licenses in the Freehold area went for more than a million each!

            I agree! That seems very inexpensive.

          2. Drove by again the other night and the TVs were on in the bar area. I wondered whether they had opened on the qt. Anybody heard anything?

              I heard they opened a few days ago. If anyone has been- would love to hear about it.
              Might have to stop by this weekend!
