Brew pub to open in Manasquan?

JerzeyShore Apr 16, 2010 02:14 PM

Heard a rumor that a brew pub may be opening on Main street in Squan, if approved by the town council. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    The link that hits up The Coast Star article is right on the money.

    As far as MH, a source tells me the name and concept of the restaurant will change, but not the owner or chef.

      According to their opentable listing the restaurant was sold.

      If I had to guess, I'd say its the new format for Mahogany Grill. I know there former chef was let go and I heard they were changing their style. The owners also own Harvest Moon brew pub in New Brunswick.

        It's Jersey Shore restaurant week, and I'm having dinner tomorrow night at the Mahogany Grill, so I'll ask around.

          A couple weeks ago, some residents were given notice of an application to operate a microbrewery in Manasquan (in the old buildings across Main Street from the Train Station). I do not know who filed the application. The location would be suitable for making beer, but not a restaurant.

            Oh Yeah, I remember that! Was that back behind 7-11? Or is that a wine-making business that was behind there?

              Kane Brewing Co. owned by Ortley Beach resident Michael Kane (as MGZ notes, a brewery, not a brewpub) but looks like it's getting major NIMBY opposition.

              Did Mahogany get sold? I saw the windows are all covered.

                Yes. I had dinner there two weeks ago and it was an ordeal. On their website it says it has closed, and will reopen as Remingtons.

                  Yes. The deal closed on Sunday. Saturday was the last service for the old crew. The new owners are a couple from Spring Lake. They own a B&B - can't recall which one. I met one of the owners yesterday.

                  They plan on doing some minor renovations but will keeping it as a fine dining restaurant. I believe the new chef spent some time at Black Trumpet and Whispers. I didn't recognize the name.

                  It sounds like they have a good background, I hope they are successful. I'd love a great place I could walk to if I wanted.
