The team that started Dozzino over a decade ago has found their way to Hoboken’s east side and have brought a new fusion restaurant to a storefront just off the greenery of Church Square Park.

Number Eleven Food Store soft-opened yesterday at 342 Garden Street inside space formerly home to late-night slice spot 7 Stars Pizzeria. That business closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic and a renovation has been quietly happening at the property for several months.

The eatery comes from the team that opened the pizza-centric Dozzino in Hoboken on Adams Street in 2010.

Number Eleven Food Store had been honing their dishes as a pop-up at various points and are now serving customers inside their own digs. The counter-style restaurant, which features some limited seating, has a decidedly Asian spin and serves what they call “good food that looks Chinese.”

The early menu at Number Eleven Food Store includes their spin on Drunken Noodles with shrimp, egg, bacon, cilantro, and chilis, while a Smoked Beef Chow Fun features smoked brisket and flat rice noodles. The restaurant’s Not Your Mama’s Wonton Soup sports both shrimp and pork wontons and ramen noodles swimming in chicken and dashi broth.

The Italian influences of the group’s past eateries still shine through a bit with concoctions like a Pepperoni Fried Rice and a Tony Tony Noodles dish, which consists of lamb, mala sauce, and sesame paste.

The restaurant has been teasing some of their concoctions at their Instagram account at the handle @11foodstore and are currently opening at 5 p.m. Further details are likely to emerge as the endeavor gets up and running, but those looking to see a full menu and order for pick up can do so at their website and by calling the restaurant at (201) 257-3321.
