So what’s the story with Three A’s Bar & Grill (500 Grand Street)?
Late last night, owner Cosimo Noto posted a message to the neighborhood restaurant’s facebook page stating:
“We regret to announce Three A’s Bar & Grill is now closed.”
And it is… for a day.
Before anyone starts fearing the worst, the restaurant was simply sold and is changing hands. Mike Gallucci, Danny Grey and Paul Marcotte—of Green Rock Tap & Grill (70 Hudson Street)—will be taking over the location.
“We will be open on Thursday night as Three A’s,” Gallucci tells hMAG.com. “We’ll have the same kitchen staff, same everything… and there will probably be Cosimo sightings as well.”
The plan is to continue operating Three A’s as is for the next month or so, then transition the location into a new establishment.
“We think that what we have planned is something pretty special,” adds Gallucci. “We can’t get into the specifics just yet, but we will say that it won’t be another Green Rock.”
So stop worrying about “TGI Fridays” or whatever other scary things you may see on social media. It’s a business transaction between local restaurateurs.
Menawhile, Cosimo’s message went on to thank his loyal patrons:
“We absolutely would not have been able to provide you with 16 years of service, if it wasn’t for YOU, Hoboken! You all will be sincerely missed,” said Noto. “It has been a wonderful 16 years and has been our pleasure!”
Ours too, Cosimo—particularly those Home Style Pork Chops.
Looking forward to the next chapter…
