BELMAR, NJ — Waves on Main will be front and center at Belmar’s Feast of San Gennaro this weekend.

In fact, much of the festival’s action will be happening right outside the front door of the landmark restaurant, situated on the corner of 10th Avenue and Main Street.

And that’s where you'll find Waves on Main owners Kathy and Lou Farese, serving up their signature Italian offerings to festival-goers. “We are extremely excited to be participating in the Feast of San Gennaro. Lou has been busy all week in the kitchen coming up with a special festival menu of his authentic Italian dishes, all prepared with the freshest ingredients,” said Kathy Farese. “We will have homemade meatballs, sausage and peppers, eggplant, chicken parmigiana and some surprises for everyone who stops by.”

For those who want more than just a sampling of its food, Waves on Main will be open for lunch and dinner on both days, offering a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a full entree, small plate, burger, salad or an appetizer or two from the myriad choices on its menu of contemporary coastal American cuisine.

And the weekend wouldn’t be complete at Waves without live entertainment. The Vel JohnsonTrio had so much fun performing — and dining — at Waves on Main for the first time last month, they are making an encore appearance on Saturday, September 16 beginning at 7 p.m.

In fact, saxophonist Vel Johnson praised his lobster tail dinner as being “the best I ever had. Like I always said, when you eat good, you play good,” he posted this week on Facebook.

Waves on Main is conveniently located at 1000 Main Street, Belmar, right in the heart of the borough’s central shopping district — just blocks from the Belmar train station, marina and beach.

It is open on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m., on Friday from 5 to 10:30 p.m., on Saturday from noon to 10:30 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 8 p.m.  While the restaurant is closed on Wednesdays, the Fareses will gladly accommodate anyone who would like to book the 150-seat restaurant for a party or special gathering.
