Old world charm collides with new world flavor at Jersey City‘s Carrino Provisions!
#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino and HGTV’s “America’s Most Desperate Kitchens” co-star Anthony Carrino chatted about this wondrous Italian marketplace.
“We wanted to do a market for a long time, and when I met my business partners, [everything fell into place],” Anthony said.
His partners include co-star of #AMDK, his cousin John Colaneri; Dale Talde, of Top Chef fame; David Massoni and John Bush. The team also owns Talde Jersey City, located right next door at 8 Erie Street.
Carrino Provisions offers a world of Italian delicacies (including the best olive oil you will ever have in your life!) Their offerings include an Illy Coffee bar; 65 feet of market cases that contain the finest meat and cheeses, homemade pasta and desserts, and fresh seafood; an outdoor courtyard; and cafe. That’s amore!
“Basically the idea here, is that you can come and eat with us, take food home that we made for you, or buy our ingredients and cook your favorites off our menu!”
As for the décor, Anthony said he and his #KitchenCousin adopted a “less is more” approach.
“Italian food packaging is light, airy and colorful. We thought, the more stark we kept the shell, the better the colors would speak through the products.”
During the warm weather months, Carrino Provisions hosts an outdoor BBQ. Every Tuesday from 6-10pm, Chef Talde takes over the courtyard and grills special surprise selections. Your and your friends can enjoy this all-you-can-eat and drink fest for only $30/person!
