Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson has opened new restaurant in Weehawken, NJ.
The Red Rooster founder will open Marcus at NoHu Rooftop, a rooftop bar and restaurant at the EnVue, Autograph Collection hotel on the Weehawken waterfront.
The 15,000 s/f roof deck will have Manhattan skyline views from the hotel that is part of the 200 acre Port Imperial development created by Mack-Cali subsidiary, Roseland Residential Trust around the NY Waterway ferry terminal.
Roseland is currently developing two new luxury residential projects that are set to open at Port Imperial in early 2021 — RiverHouse 9, a 313-unit building in Weehawken, and The Capstone, a 360-unit building in West New York.
Marcus at NoHu offers a menu of seasonally-inspired dishes and a hand-crafted selection of refreshing cocktails, wine, and beer.
Chef Samuelsson is the acclaimed chef, cookbook author, TV personality, philanthropist and food activist behind iconic restaurants Red Rooster Harlem in New York City and Marcus B+P in Newark. He has won multiple James Beard Foundation awards for his work as a chef and as host of PBS’s No Passport Required. Samuelsson was crowned champion of Top Chef Masters and Chopped All Stars and was the guest chef for President Obama’s first state dinner.
“The people in and around the Port Imperial community are craving new and exciting things to safely enjoy with their loved ones,” said Matthes Metz, General Manager, EnVue. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to team up with the powerhouse Chef Marcus Samuelsson to bring our community an amazing new dining offering during this difficult time period.”
MaryAnne Gilmartin, Board Chair and Interim Chief Executive Officer of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, said, “Our Port Imperial offerings provide more space, state-of-the-art amenity packages, incredible views of both the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline, and now, signature culinary experiences,” she explained.
“When combined with the region’s affordability and convenient transit access for cross-river commuters, Port Imperial is uniquely positioned to meet the demand for the urban-suburban conveniences and lifestyle that renters and hotel guests have been seeking for decades.”
NoHu is open every day of the week, for dining, drinks, and weekend brunch.
