North Jersey food blog Boozy Burbs is one step ahead of you. They're counting down their five most anticipated openings in Bergen County. The restaurants are California Tortilla in Montvale, Orama in Edgewater, Casual Habana Cafe in New Milford, Fish in Ridgewood and Sofia in Englewood.
California Tortilla in Montvale
This chain of Cal-Mex cuisine features chef-inspired dishes is coming to Montvale ― all of which are made in-house and sourced locally. Hot sauce fans will appreciate their 75+ bottle “Wall of Flame”.
Orama in Edgewater
This one made the list last year. It appears diners will still have to wait to this restaurant helmed by Chef John Piliouras. A few details were unearthed earlier this year, but nothing new has surfaced in quite some time.
Casual Habana Cafe in New Milford
Hackensack’s Casual Habana Cafe is expanding ― this time with a larger space and liquor license ― bringing a tapas bar and cocktails along with Chef/Owner Benito Rivero’s classic Cuban menu to the former Main Street Grille space.
Fish (Urban Dining) in Ridgewood
Expectations are running high for the restaurant ― via Asbury Park ― with it’s former bank digs, liquor license and seafood heavy menu which is expected in 2015.
Sofia in Englewood – Website
The other spot that made last year’s list. Bronx restaurateur Eddy Sujak (Tosca Cafe, Giovanni) promises to have the smoke-free upstairs and smoke lounge downstairs ― equipped with state of the art air filtration ― open sometime in the first half of 2015.
A few other notable upcoming spots to make the Honorable Mention list are Emma in Englewood, Craft House in Suffern, and Finca in Ridgewood. It appears that 2015 is shaping up with plenty of new places to check out
