after what seems like an eternity, it’s finally happened, we have secured our liquor license! we still have a few tweaks here and there and a few things to iron out, so we will remain BYOB until memorial day (may 27). we will be closed on memorial day and will begin selling beer & wine on tuesday, may 28th! thank you in advance for your support this past year and for your continued support while we make this transition. we understand that many of you enjoyed being able to BYO at our restaurant, and we hope that you understand the necessity of a liquor license for our continued success. thank you thank you thank you. we cannot say it enough. we will be posting the menu as soon as we finalize it!if you have any questions, please email us at thirtyacresrestaurant@gmail.com.so much love,alex & kevin

We at The Bad Deal look forward to this transition, as one of the nice things about going to a restaurant is trying beers, wines and booze that you can’t normally find at your neighborhood liquor shop (which quite frankly is usually the stuff we brought to Thirty Acres). Sure, this will cost the consumer a few more dollars, but we think it’ll be worth it.

This Jersey City restaurant raised over $18,000 in Kickstarter funds then lost up to $20,000 in Sandy-inflicted damage4

That’s the bad news. The good news is that Thirty Acres is packed. And it’s no further from Manhattan than Brooklyn. Really, you’ve spent more time commuting to Roberta’s. As such, I award 2.5 stars to Thirty Acres in my Bloomberg News review today. Husband and wife owners Kevin and Alex Pemoulie say they hope to make some of the losses back through insurance. Here’s what Alex & Kevin tell me:

  • "We lost probably $15k to $20k in product that we had to throw away and lost income. We are incredibly lucky that we didn’t lose anything else, that our building only had minimal damage, and that it looks like insurance will cover a portion of our waste and lost income. We haven’t received any money from insurance yet, but are hopeful that we will get at least a portion reimbursed.”

Oh, did I forget to mention that these guys rock? How remiss on my part. So:

These guys ROCK.
