Italian Deli/Market Approved For Kingston


Township restaurateur Gennaro Costabile received Planning Board approval for his Italian deli/market.

Kingston will soon be getting a new Italian deli and market on Route 27.

The Planning Board at its May 7 meeting approved expansion plans for a building at 4587 Route 27, owned by township resident Gennaro Costabile.

Costabile, owner of Gennaro’s Restaurant in Princeton, needed to expand the rear of the building by 400 feet to accommodate a kitchen and walk-in refrigerator.

Costabile told the board that his market would be open from about 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and would employ up to three people. In addition to preparing food served in the market, Costabile said, he would also be making food for his catering business.

The market will have four tables, big enough for two people each, he said. Outdoor seating would be “casual,” if people “wanted to sit down and eat a sandwich or wait for their order to be prepared.”

Board member James Pettit was concerned about parking and about how Costabile would get garbage out of the restaurant.

Costabile said there was parking available on both sides of the street, but Pettit said that parking is scarce during the lunch hour.

“How do you get deliveries, where do the trucks go for the catering?” he asked.

“That’s a good question,” Costabile said. “The catering trucks would be there in the morning. I guess we would have to wait for something to open up.”

Costabiel said his market will be “more of a neighborhood place, that people walk to. I have all my neighbors knocking on my door, ‘when are you opening?’ ”

Board member Ted Chase said he thought the market would make “a good addition” to the area.”
