Bernardsville, NJ, May 20, 2013
The Station has once again reinvented itself and during a recent reopening celebration, Bernardsville Mayor Lee Honecker cut the ribbon.
The Station managed to stay current while retaining the essence of being a hometown eatery. This hip, sleek restaurant has the familiarity of a local watering-hole with the look and flavors of an upscale city hotspot. The first impression you get when entering the new interior is warm and welcoming. A wall of windows opens to the view of the Bernardsville train station. Earth-toned textures of tweed walls, rich coiffured ceilings with dark wood beams, and roomy booths flanking the outer walls create an environment that is comfortable, tailored and beautifully lit. The large square bar invites conversation while several new well-placed, large screen tv’s provide easy viewing without being overpowering, a great spot for the sports lovers!
The New Station menus are a modern take on comfort as well. Enjoy the newest additions that are sure to be Classics - The Train Wreck - a burger like no other, The Dirty Dog & The Italian Hot Dog plus The Turkey Burger which is already a huge hit. The Buffalo Wings and Popcorn Chicken add a unique twist to expected bar fare and there are some great new entrees such as Lobster Mac 'n Cheese or Lobster and Shrimp Pasta. The signature Martini list with names like the Tini Rita and Amaretto Crème Brulee Tini are sure to please the adventurous complimented by a well rounded wine and beer list.
Built in 1878 as the Claremont Hotel, over the years this building has housed a plumbing showroom, an antiques dealer, Carmine’s Barber Shop, an auto showroom, a tavern and multiple restaurants. In 2006, The Hampshire Companies extensively renovated the interior and exterior and opened The Station. They have now taken the restaurant to the next level.
The Station has proven to be an innovative, fun restaurant that continues to offer comfortable, casual family dining, with an emphasis on quality food and drink.
