Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson opened a restaurant at a hotel on the Weehawken waterfront.
Marcus at NoHu Rooftop, a 15,000-square-foot roof deck serving up seasonally-inspired food, opened at the EnVue, Autograph Collection hotel in Weehawken’s Port Imperial neighborhood, where Mack-Cali Realty Corp.’s subsidiary Roseland Residential Trust is spearheading the creation of a $3 billion, 200-acre neighborhood surrounding the New York Waterway ferry terminal.
Roseland has two residential projects under development in the neighborhood, both projected to open early next year.
“Roseland’s placemaking success in Port Imperial is mirrored not only in the design of our thoughtfully-imagined properties, but also in its attraction of celebrity chefs such as Marcus Samuelsson,” stated Mack-Cali Interim Chief Executive Officer MaryAnne Gilmartin in a prepared statement.
“Our Port Imperial offerings provide more space, state-of-the-art amenity packages, incredible views of both the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline, and now, signature culinary experiences,” she explained. “When combined with the region’s affordability and convenient transit access for cross-river commuters, Port Imperial is uniquely positioned to meet the demand for the urban-suburban conveniences and lifestyle that renters and hotel guests have been seeking for decades.”
Marcus at NoHu, Samuelsson’s second eatery in New Jersey after Marcus B+P in Newark, is open daily for dining, drinks and weekend brunch at 550 Ave. at Port Imperial, Weehawken.
A representative for Marcus Samuelsson Group did not return a request for comment by press time.
