Owners of the new Blue Horse restaurant in Highland Park were joined by Mayor Gayle Mittler and members of the borough council at the restaurant’s ribbon cutting ceremony last Wednesday. The restaurant is located only one mile from the New Brunswick train station at 246 Raritan Avenue in Highland Park.
Owned by Joe Amore, Jeff McNamara, and Dan Caputo, The Blue Horse says they are keen on “using local artisan products and locally-farmed, fresh produce and fruit whenever possible in [its] scratch-made selections.” Food items at the new restaurant include wraps, salads, sandwiches, as well as gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options.
The restaurant also scheduled two live music events during its first post-opening weekend: pianist Judy Palma headlined on Friday, followed by the John Bianculli Trio on Saturday.
The location of The Blue Horse restaurant was previously occupied by Peruvian restaurant and bar Tete.
Developer Kaplan Cos. opened a luxury rental building in Highland Park, directly adjacent to the historic Merriewold Castle, last year.
