Damaged or destroyed restaurants from Sandy

Is there a definitive list of restaurants in NJ that have either been damaged or destroyed from Hurricane Sandy? Eater NY put out a good list for NYC and the Boroughs but I haven't found anything for NJ. Or can we start the list here?

      It's not really a definitive list. Is there one Hudson county restaurant on it? Hoboken alone has many damaged businesses that ate still not open.

        To be perfectly honest there is so much destruction that I can't see anyone going through each town to make such a list. Many of us in the destruction areas have no way of knowing what is going on in other areas. The damage is extensive and wide spread all along the shore. i still have people living with me who can't return to their home. If you are interested in a particular restaurant, ask and maybe someone from that town can answer.

          That's a good point you know of any Hoboken or Jersey City restaurants that are closed or destroyed? I was in JC last weekend and the hosts were talking about how they lucked out--water stopped about 50' from their place; it made me wonder about restaurants in that area.

            Clinton Social in Hoboken is still closed, kitchen was in basement, needless to say it was under water. Pilsner House is open, Fig Tree is open both places took on water. Most places on Washington in Hoboken just lost power so they are all open. The places one the waterfront such as Trinity were fine as I know Trinity saw no damage other than the power loss. Court Street never lost power and were serving a full menu two days after the storm.

              The Nag's Head bar, a few delis, Legal Beans coffee house and BBQ in the the 4th Ward where I live are still closed, just to name a few, as are other businesses (hair stylists, Zin Home, etc.). Very sad to walk the streets and see these places in various sates of repair/disrepair.

            Feel free to make it "definitive." I'm not in a position to tally the entire state's losses and damages, just figured folks would report on their own locales...

            1. re: equal_Mark

              My comment was more about the fact that a "definitive" list was not something really to be found here on these boards.

        2. Tried to go to Edward's Steakhouse in JC on Saturday 11/24 and they are still closed. Went to Wolfgang's in Tribeca instead, and have to admit, am darn glad I did.
