What I posted on Facebook:

This place is OK… if you like GORgeous! — at Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen [in Morristown, NJ.]


Such a sunlit dining room!


Thinking of Karen Schloss + Frank Diaz and Melody Kettle!

He passed on, at the end of 2014 (?). The photo, above–with one of his works of art, in the background–is from 2009. I found these (“contact sheets” of) photos, of a very happy time for him–the opening night reception of a solo show!

Check out De Novo!

February 13, 2015

I heard about TV shoot that was going to happen at De Novo restaurant. (If I brand myself as “Mr. Hospitality,” Demetri Malki is my role model. From Demetri’s to Table 8 to a captain stint at Osteria Giotto, he’s always been such a warm and welcoming personality/presence.) Sure, I’ll do him a favor (and go eat) to fill out the room!

[Remember when Lauren Glassberg, of “Neighborhood Eats” on WABC-TV news came to Bloomfield?]

The sign had been installed only recently/just in time!


So many details are considered!


Full bars are rare in Montclair. This one is on NJ Transit Property, so it’s under a different political jurisdiction/laws.
