Park & Sixth deli to open new spot in Jersey City

...
A new menu item that Dowling is particularly proud of is a hamburger called the Beast. The hamburger features half a pound of ground short-rib, American cheese, lettuce, bacon, caramelized onions, chipotle mayo, ketchup and a fried egg on a brioche bun served with a side of fries. "The Beast only comes the way it is. You cannot substitute anything on this burger," he said. (Ed: :drama: )



The Beast?  That's an X-Tudo!

Park & Sixth deli to open new spot in Jersey City

Park & Sixth deli to open new spot in Jersey City

Brian Dowling always wanted to open his own restaurant. He started on the sales side of the restaurant business, so he knows the numbers, but he wanted a place to call his own. "I opened my first restaurant in Bergen County but I had to close it because the business was just too slow," he said.

But he never gave up on his dream and so he kept what worked from his old restaurant and carried it over to his new one, the now popular Park & Sixth in Hoboken. "Park & Sixth was popular from Day One," Dowling said. "In the land of delis we stood as something different."

Park & Sixth is a comfort foods store and restaurant offering menu items such as roast beef, pork loin and braised beef brisket. "Comfort food derived from the peasants so we do a lot of braising. Our braised brisket is the best," Dowling said. The store also offers two types of catering services, comfort foods that include four types of macaroni-and-cheese and meatloaf, and more high-end options.

Now Dowling is opening his second store, this one in Jersey City. "We will have the same menu but now that we have seating we can go beyond just sandwiches," he said.

A new menu item that Dowling is particularly proud of is a hamburger called the Beast. The hamburger features half a pound of ground short-rib, American cheese, lettuce, bacon, caramelized onions, chipotle mayo, ketchup and a fried egg on a brioche bun served with a side of fries. "The Beast only comes the way it is. You cannot substitute anything on this burger," he said. (Ed: :drama: )

Dowling always wanted to start his business in Jersey City, since that's where he's lived for almost eight years. He was driving through town one day and saw a "For Rent" sign in the window of 364 Grove St. "It looked perfect and it was right in the area where Park & Sixth was already delivering lunch to businesses," he said. He didn't hesitate to rent the space.

Park & Sixth in Jersey City will be a little different from the one in Hoboken, and that doesn't just mean the menu. This location has a more vintage feel and will play music around-the-clock. It will also have free wi-fi access so patrons can surf the Internet while eating. "Jersey City is a different customer base because of its diverse demographic and its development towards a more historic and art community like Park Slope in Brooklyn," Dowling said.

When Park & Sixth Jersey City debuts, Dowling will be there as much as he can. Over time he will run back and forth between his Hoboken location and this one. Dan Soriano, Dowling's business partner, will remain at the Jersey City location as acting manager.

The new Park & Sixth will have a soft-opening on Tuesday, Nov. 9, in order to "work through the mistakes that come with any new restaurant," Dowling said. "After that, we'll have the big ribbon-cutting ceremony."

From the JCI:



Brian Dowling Brings Hobokenís Park & Sixth to Grove & First in Jersey City
By Laryssa Wirstiuk ē Sep 14th, 2010

Grandmaís kitchen isnít the only place where a hungry person can find comfort food, according to Brian Dowling.

ďComfort food is food that makes you feel good,Ē says the owner and executive chef of Park & Sixth. ďI love braising. I think of something that falls apart when you eat it. And thatís what I incorporate into my sandwiches and catering.Ē

Dowling has been serving comfort food in Hoboken since June 2009, at the original Park & Sixth, and heíll be serving it in Jersey City, starting this month, at the restaurantís new Grove Street location.

ďWe have the same menu as the Hoboken location, but thereís seating here,Ē says Dowling. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, Park & Sixth in Jersey City will transform from a specialty food store into a sit-down restaurant with a limited menu. (full article and pics)

Ahh, their location in Hoboken used to be Piccininni Salumeria. They used to make really great, affordable sandwiches and other Italian foods.

Their menu looks nice though very expensive. A $16 Italian hero ("The Hoboken")??! Sheeesh.

Walked past earlier this afternoon, they seem to have gotten a lot of work done in the space. The paper is off of the windows.

According to The Boken Online, Park & Sixth is looking to open "sometime in August."

The website says coming soon to Park and Sixth in Hoboken. They're opening another on in JC simultaneously? Interesting.

Yeah, but they both had the power of a national chain behind them. And apparently the no change in decor either.

Am hoping since the place was already a food joint, they won't get hosed. The Fat Burger to Five Guys transition didn't take nearly as long as some of the green field places.

Would be great to have a good ital deli in the area.
