Millie’s Old World Meatballs and Pizza

Millie’s Old World Meatballs and Pizza of Staten Island

If you weren’t hungry before, you definitely are now!
Millie’s Old World Meatballs and Pizzain Morristown, is now opening a new restaurant in their hometown of Staten Island!

Brothers and founders Vince and Brandon Carrabba grew up in Staten Island and decided to go back home. Their second location, Millie’s of Staten Island is in the Bricktown Center at Charleston (185 Bricktown Way, Staten Island, NY 10309).

The new bistro is described to be “an elevated neighborhood dining destination for families, friends, and couples serving lunch, dinner, and brunch featuring signature coal and wood-fired pizzas, famous meatballs and salads.”

Millie’s of Staten Island is 4,000 sf and has a grand dining area that can hold 85 seats, a pizza counter made for 10 and a fully serviced bar. Their bar will also offer signature cocktails, wine, and beer! But it is the three large garage doors that open up to a 72-seat outdoor patio that really takes the cake pizza.

SR Design Studio helped turn the dream into reality. The restaurant is not like your typical Italian restaurant. Millie’s incorporates unique and contemporary design elements.

The custom made bar is created with blackened steel and LED lights  to create the illusion of coal embers. They also made their hardwood floors to resemble their wood-burning ovens by using Japanese charred cedar wood. Finally, they have breathtaking hand-assembled chain link wall art purchased from Spain featuring Millie’s image.

These are just a few of the aspects that make Millie’s of Staten Island so inviting and intriguing. Now you just have to stop in and see for yourself! Visit MilliesOldWorld.com for more information.

Sneak peek to Summer Weekend Recap

Hip New Jersey was loving the sneak peek to summer. This weekend has made us so ready for another New Jersey Summer! We were embracing the weather all over, from the Jersey shore board walk to the waterfront of Hoboken

“If you’re loud and fun this is the role for you!”

Another Jersey shore? We thought that phase of our South Jersey life was history, but 18ToLife productions are bringing it back Throwback Thursday style.

Preliminary Casting calls will be held at Bamboo bar in Seaside Heights for another reality “I Love Summer” TV series! The cast members will be working on the beach during the day, and Bamboo Bar at night. The only requirements they ask of you is to be loud, outgoing and SINGLE.


Another incredible thing has happened to New Jersey this month and that was the opening of Krispy Kreme! Six new locations are opening up and we are drooling! The first of 6 locations is in Jersey City at 95 Christopher Columbus Drive and their ten day run has already been proven strong!
