Albie and Chris Manzo are forging ahead in the family restaurant business. The brothers held a grand opening Thursday night for Ainsworth Hoboken, the fourth branch of the upscale gastropub which already has two locations in Manhattan and one in Las Vegas. Ainsworth Hoboken opened up in the waterfront location that previously housed Littletown, the Manzos' first restaurant.
"To walk along the waterfront and to dine at the Ainsworth are both fantastic experiences, and combining the two was just a no-brainer," the brothers said. "The Ainsworth has already established itself in New York, and Las Vegas, as a truly unique gastropub that is driven on exceptional quality," before adding that guests can still expect "plenty of Manzo family flavor!"
The Manzo family documented Albie and Chris's work with Littletown on the first season of Manzo'd with Children. Following in the tradition of dad Albert Manzo's long-established New Jersey restaurant The Brownstone, Albie and Chris were seen learning the ropes of opening up their own establishment. There are plans to move Littletown to a location a few blocks away later on this month. "We have moved to a more residential area of town to insure what we've always wanted to make clear, that Littletown is a hometown restaurant and bar," they explained.
