New Hoboken Restaurant, IL Tavolo di’ Palmisano, Opening Tomorrow, 2/16

Written by:

A new Italian restaurant is opening in the old Jack and Co space {and previously, the Clinton Social!} on 7th and Clinton Streets: Il Tavolo di’ Palmisano. The name hails from the owner, Frank Palmisano, who announced the news of the forthcoming restaurant back in November of 2019.

“Full steam ahead!” Palmisano who is well-known for his partner role at Biggie’s Clam Bar and as Battalion Chief for Hoboken Fire Department — wrote on IG. Fast-forward to today, and it looks as if the final touches are being put on this “family-run authentic Italian restaurant,”  with an opening this weekend, according to its owners. The restaurant is officially opening its doors on Sunday, February 16th. Keep reading to learn more.

The News

News about IL Tavolo di’ Palmisano has been rolling out slowly but surely. In November of 2019, Hoboken Girl confirmed that the restaurant going into the old Jack and Co space would be another Italian restaurant and weeks before that, HG got wind that a new eatery was coming to the space. Today, however, it’s been confirmed that IL Tavolo di’ Palmisano has moved in and after getting in touch with IL Tavolo via Instagram, we can confirm that the restaurant will be opening on Sunday, February 16th. 

Back in 2017, Jack and Co closed somewhat abruptly after being open on 7th and Clinton for about a year. Jack and Co took over the former Clinton Social space in the summer of 2017 and was known for its rustic-chic cocktails.

If you remember Clinton Social and its cozy neighborhood vibes and T drinks, and it looks like IL Tavolo will keep the neighborhood feel going with its cozy + dark ambiance.

Now that IL Tavolo’s Instagram account is fully up and running, we can confirm that the new restaurant will be serving up “authentic Italian” eats, as the proof is right there in the pudding {aka their menu}.

From the looks of it, this new locale will be serving dishes like orecchiette with Italian sausage and broccoli rabe, ossobuco {veal shanks with braised vegetables}, antipasto plates, signature cocktails, wine, and more.

About the Owner

Palmisano is no stranger to the restaurant biz, as his bio says he’s a partner at Biggie’s Clam Bar. You may recall that Biggie’s announced that its Newark Street location was closing a little over a year ago, after already closing its OG location in West Hoboken. While Biggie’s is still around {you know, available for catering and still operating its Carlstadt and Ramsey locations}, December 31st, 2018 was the famous clam bar’s last day of servicing Hoboken from a brick-and-mortar {and since then, Monroe’s Cocktail Bar Hoboken has moved into it’s place}.

That all being said, while yes, it’s yet another Italian spot coming to town, it’s nice to see the 7th and Clinton space being filled with a local resident’s new brainchild. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for this corner!
