HOBOKEN, NJ - We've all been fishing for some good news about Tutta Pesca ever since they closed up shop at their 155 3rd Street location in Hoboken. Sources close to the project have now confirmed rumors that the celebrated seafood market and restaurant will be relocating to 557 First Street.
"Our Italian-American seafood restaurant strives to provide exceptional food and service in a relaxing, family oriented atmosphere," says Tutta Pesca's website. The restaurant first opened in 2015 near 3rd & Bloomfield Streets. With a tide of rave reviews flowing in, owner Mike Caracappa is reportedly looking to expand the venue beyond what their previous space could hold.
Fans of the venue were certainly gutted when the news broke last month that the former location was up for sale. Meanwhile, owners purchased the building at 557 First, where the storefront has remained vacant since a contentious dispute between bar owners at Northern Soul and the previous building owner in 2016. Northern Soul relocated in to 700 First Street in December of that year.
Architectural plans indicate a significant redesign of the commercial space. We reached out to Caracappa for further comments, but he has yet to respond. Stay tuned for updates.
