New Hoboken Restaurant Called IL Tavolo di’ Palmisano Coming to 7th + Clinton

Written by:

You know what they say, Mile Square. As one door closes {Jack and Co} another door opens — and that new door? It belongs to a new Italian restaurant coming to the old Jack and Co space on 7th and Clinton Streets: Tavolo di’ Palmisano.

Hoboken Girl can confirm that the new Italian restaurant coming to 7th and Clinton is called Tavolo di’ Palmisano. In fact, the name of the restaurant was actually confirmed by Frank Palmisano himself via Instagram.

“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. “IL Tavolo di’ Palmisano opening mid/late December!”

News about IL Tavolo di’ Palmisano has been rolling out slowly but surely, so to hear that the restaurant is on track to open in just about a month is definitely a surprise. Last week, 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.

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, here’s to hoping IL Tavolo can keep the neighborhood feel going.

While there’s no word yet on an official menu for IL Tavolo di’ Palmisano, it’s safe to assume it will contain go-to Italian delicacies, much like other staple Italian restaurant around town. Other Italian places nearby in Hoboken include {but are certainly not limited to!} Leo’s Grandevous, Napoli’s, and more. The

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 about 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 31, 2018 was the famous clam bar’s last day of servicing Hoboken from a brick-and-mortar.

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!
