Opening Alert: Emma, Englewood, NJ

emma

Emma, the new restaurant from partner Miguel Aguirre (Emma is his mother) and Chef James Muir, has opened in Englewood. The restaurant, which shares some of it’s DNA with Jersey City’s Orale Mexican Kitchen — Muir is also the chef, is envisioned as “comfort American food” with “Latin flavors”.

The menu at Emma (View Menu), which is “90% American”, takes cues from their comfort food roots and uses both “creative” ingredients and techniques to create “exciting” flavors. Signature dishes including their Crostini Tasting which is served with Balthazar bread and topped with items like house-cured salmon.

The 40+ seat BYO — though there is a “cocktail-driven” virgin cocktail menu — is open for dinner with lunch coming in a few weeks.
