Has anyone tried the new restaurant yet? I've been out of town for the last two weeks, but am interested for when I return. Any good?

It's just Rosa's Le Deli reopening where she was. The McNair kids will be happy.

New Spanish Restaurant Replaces The Music Box






A new Spanish restaurant is opening today on the corner of Monmouth and 7th in the former Music Box space at 322 1/2 7th Street.

After having been closed and reopened a few times, The Music Box (later, the New Music Box), a local neighborhood bar, shut down permanently late last year. It seems as though the space is owned by the same family, but has been rented out to new tenants who are opening up a casual Spanish restaurant that will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is some seating inside and it's a fairly large space, but they anticipate doing more take-out then eat-in. As of yesterday, no official name or sign was posted.

They'll be open today from 7am-7pm with a limited menu to start with and plan to slowly expand over the next couple of weeks.

According to another family member the plan is to rent the space to TBD gringo restaurateur. Hope it's a good addition to the neighborhood.

This place is being gutted. Anybody know the plan? Rosa's has moved down to 5th st, and she couldn't say what her sister was up to.

Hope they don't have a new liquor license.

Besides this bar, how is the rest of the nearby neighborhood?

Unless you're going to live in one of the buildings with a window that is facing directly into the Music Box, I don't think if you have anything to worry about, unless people standing outside smoking and dropping their cigarette butts on the sidewalk out front bothers you.

The rest of the nearby neighborhood is perfectly fine, I lived there almost 10 years and I felt safe. Walking from the Grove Street station in the dark was something I did frequently, unless it was really late, in which case I took a cab. With Uber being readily available in Jersey City, you have even more options. Just exercise your street smarts and common sense.

I walked by this evening - it seemed to be open, though in a more subdued manner. What's the story?

I honestly never understood peoples' opposition to that place though. I lived across the street from it for years and never was really bothered by it. Yes, it could get loud sometimes but many people, including myself, moved into the neighborhood knowing full well that the place was there. They chose to "come to the nuisance" as the legal term goes.

People complained earlier in this thread about their kids' bedroom windows facing the noisy building - well why did you choose to live by the place, especially when you have children? This is a city people. You want quiet, tree lined streets 24/7? Move further out into Essex or Warren County. You don't want to live that far from your job? Not my problem. Not the bar's or anybody else's problem. I honestly don't understand people who continue to live in this city when they have school-age children who could easily afford to live in a quiet suburb with decent public schools anyway.

The place met all the zoning requirements and was not breaking any laws simply by being a bar. Maybe they were in violation of noise-related laws but again, this is a city. Live with it.


Well, don't you just have everyone figured out.

When I moved here 17 years ago it was closed after a fire. So there! I understand your argument, but the fact was they were (hopeful past tense) really shitty, inconsiderate neighbors, who attracted a clientele who were NOT from the neighborhood and could not give a shit about who they bothered with their late night mayhem.

A truly neighborhood place like the ones I mentioned are good neighbors because that's they're clientele, their neighbors. Both the bar wants to keep it cool to keep their customers, and the customers know their neighbors or their kids are trying to sleep nearby.

I wonder what the ABC rules are about the licenses. Given that there's no nearby license that common obstacle would no problem for a new business owner. But after being terrorized by "Marias" for decades, I'm sure the neighbors would do all they can to prevent the issuance of a new license, like they did in the space next to Basic when it was an Italian restaurant.

So, I overheard a guy outside the bar saying they sold the liquor license to another location. No idea if they did that under pressure or just for the money, but it sounds like they're gone forever.

Ditto! I had given up on that place ever going down, they seemed to have too much juice with the cops. I've fantasized about it being a nice quiet neighborhood pub, like the White Star or Hamilton Inn but with a pool table.

In a city filled with strangely named bars/restaurants, New Music Box Cafe might be the winner. Viva La Mexico Taqueria Kitchen Cafe is another head scratcher.

He wasn't willing to give details, but said he knew and wasn't surprised they were closed. He said he had no idea if the closure was permanent.
I hate this damn bar...I live across the street from it and the clientele it attracts for the most part are the scum of the earth. I hope they finally got busted for letting folks deal drugs out of there and or for serving those under 21.

It looks like the Music Box has been closed all weekend. I can't believe how quiet the neighborhood is when the idiots aren't around. Someone PLEASE tell me this is a permanent change.

yeah definitely contact the ABC, they're the only ones with power to control things like this and issue fines or revoke license. And they are police, and they're all pretty great people.

Write your council member and write the mayor (fulops@jcnj.org). Tell them about the city employees involved. Write to them frequently and encourage your neighbors to do the same.

File a complaint with the ABC or whatever it is called in NJ. Get your neighbors to do the same. That's how Cafe Brandt - currently Rustique - lost their liquor license.

Exactly. Lots of Hispanic cops hang out there. If you complain you'll get the classic Jersey City shrug of the shoulders and "close your windows" reply.
