Anthony’s is housed in a vintage New Jersey building dating back to the early thirties. If these walls could talk, you’d be privileged to stories that have traveled across the globe, creating a vibrant dining experience that is one of a kind.
History has a way of connecting us to the past while living with us in the present. Over time, history is bound to unravel, always teaching us something new. That’s one of the many reasons we are so fascinated with Italian cuisine at Anthony’s; it never grows old. We feel the same way about our wines.
“Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.” –Benjamin Franklin
When you step into Anthony’s for a meal and glass of wine, you are most certainly stepping back in time. We didn’t know it thirty-five years ago, but we got lucky with our restaurant space, and it keeps getting better with age.
“I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realizes an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don’t have complete emotions about the present, only about the past.” –Virginia Woolf
Life gets busy, that’s why our homes are a haven for rest, and peace. We create these little spaces of oasis, where we can collect ourselves, and share grand moments with family and friends. We liken Anthony’s to a home, all the best and the nostalgic moments in life meet in one place, our restaurant.
You are certain to notice our unique wine cellar when you enter Anthony’s. It’s a beautiful hand-crafted oak wine cabinet able to house 200 bottles of wine. We created it with our customers in mind. You can store all of your favorite bottles here with us for safe keeping, let us pop the cork when you visit us next.
We’re also proud to offer our guests select vintage wines from Amalthea Cellars. Amalthea has been making excellent wine since the seventies, and they are continuing to prove they are experts in the field, locally sourcing the best grapes, and showcasing the best methods from Napa Valley to France.
Founder Louis Caracciolo studied in the great winemaking district of France. It was here at Bordeaux that he developed a distinct process of winemaking signature to Napa Valley. His “hands off” methods are so striking; you’ll taste it with every glass.
Amalthea has been a unique supporter of ours for years, and their history matches up with the story we tell at Anthony’s. Passion in the details, creativity always.
You can’t plan out every aspect of life, is just doesn’t work that way. You can, however, create moments. Moments provide clarity; they provide comfort, and they give us creativity that leads to great lives.
Anthony’s Cuisine is in the business of setting up those moments for you when you step into our restaurant. It’s a world away, and right around the corner. We express ourselves through food and drink, and it wouldn’t be possible without all of our patrons. Equally important, we hope our food gives you moments of self-expression and clarity when you dine within our historic walls.
That’s why we also create special occasions to step away, and experience a new venue and a new menu. Our next event, Feast in the Fields is just three days away.
When our team sat down with Chef Anthony, we talked about all the great experiences that take place before the meal. The prep and planning, picking fresh vegetables, and we realized we wanted to design a unique experience out in the fields.
Duffield’s Farm Market, one of our largest providers of sustainable, fresh produce was thrilled when we asked them to host. We have created a multi-course meal, using all the fresh produce right a Duffield’s.
We recently had Farm-To-Fork week, and we partnered with SJ Hot Chefs once again to create great meals, sourced from our cities local produce.
Our Feast in the Fields event is just another way for us to break away from the redundancy of life and add a splash of color to it.
So come join us, you’ll have a great experience and carve out your slice of history.
