The Cousins and Talde Jersey City

The Cousins and Talde Jersey City

“The Cousins on Hip New Jersey” is sponsored by eLEND.

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino sat at a table for four at Talde Jersey City, an Asian-American restaurant with one hip secret. Joined by some of the restaurant partners- Dale TaldeAnthony Carrinoand David Massoni Lisa Marie got the inside scoop on this trendy eatery.

Talde JC is one of six hotspots commissioned by The Three Kings Restaurant Group, owned and operated by David, Dale & John Bush. The trio joined forces with Anthony and John Colaneri of HGTV’s “America’s Most Desperate Kitchens” to bring a new flavor into The Cousins‘ beloved Garden State!  (Also check out their other joint, Carrino Provisions).

While Anthony and John were the creativity behind the atmosphere, Dale’s Filipino roots allowed the entire concept to come to life.

“We wanted to put food that was inspired from how and where I grew up,” Dale, of Top Chef and Chopped fame, said. “We’re just trying to have fun and put great food, great atmosphere, great design, great drinks and great service together.”

As for the décor, Anthony said the industrial style of the building, the fusion of Asian and American cultures, and Dale’s overall flavor were all tools in the construction.

“I understand family pride and I understand the passion that goes into it, so for me I wanted to play off of his food,” Anthony explained.

When the steamy plates are placed on the table, they are served with an aura of sharing, much like the potluck styled meals Dale is accustomed to. The partners said sometimes the waiters can’t keep up with the pace of customer orders, not just placed for themselves, but for the table!

“It makes for a party for almost every dining experience that’s happening here!” David explained.

Now that you know about the above-ground Talde JC experience, we’ll let you in on their big secret: Miss Wong’s. It’s a speakeasy bar located downstairs, perfect for before or after dinner cocktails. Pass us a few over here!
