... Il Fornetto Trattoria. New signage went up yesterday. Not sure if it's new ownership or what.. Pino's (which always made me think of .. well.. you know) was there for quite a while.

And what the heck happened to the 7-11 on Rt. 9 North in Manalapan? Drove passed today.. and it was just GONE. Building still there, but store cleaned out, all signage gone. Weird. Meanwhile, Wawa a few hundred feet away to the north still going strong.

  1. Pino's has been for sale for at least the past 3-4 years so I will assume it was sold. While I couldn't complain about the food or the bar, the dining room always felt banquet hall-ish to me.

    1. I seldom stop at 7-11 even though they are accessible. And when I do it's just for a bottled drink. I go to Wawa about 5 times a week. Still waiting for one to open in Mahwah.

        Any rumors about that? Very vast town so there's a lot of location possibilities. There's 7-11 and they do well, but they have a good location capturing a portion of the west side of 17.

        The other side of 17 and the Darlington area and other side of Ramapo Ridge could be a captive audience/capture. Being the biggest town in Bergen County, there's a lot of real estate there, LOL.

          They've started to expand into Bergen county. One in Lodi opens in the fall. But there's a long running joke about having one in Mahwah so an employee can answer the phone and say "Good morning, Mahwah Wawa"

            Wawa is based in Wawa, PA... so there they presumably say "Good morning, Wawa Wawa".
