Good news! Caroline Manzo’s sons, Chris and Albie Manzo have announced the re-opening of their Hoboken hotspot, “Little Town.” The brothers are excited their restaurant is back and claim it’s better than ever!

Their joint venture eatery is in a new location in Hoboken, New Jersey and they are opening up all about the revamped hot spot.

“It’s a very social atmosphere,” Chris tells the Daily Dish. “A huge bar with really comfortable stools, I can seriously sit there all day. We also have some community tables. We really want it to be a place where people can meet new people and enjoy each other’s company.”

Diners of the former “Little Town,” will be wowed by the revamped menu selections for the new location.

“The menu is entirely different!” Chris says. “We have a great new chef who is crazy creative and there are a lot of items that are very new to Hoboken. From Kimchee Buns to seasonal pickled vegetables, it’s a seriously diverse menu.”

However, the “Manzo’d with Children” stars managed to preserve some of the original “Little Town” charm for anyone who enjoyed hanging out there. “Little Town regulars will certainly feel like it’s different,” Chris shares. “But the real regulars will see a lot of familiar faces and will enjoy the same electric atmosphere as the old Little Town had.”

This is the second restaurant the Manzo brothers opened in Hoboken. In March, they opened “Ainsworth Hoboken” in the same spot the old Little Town used to be housed in. And Chris notes that this latest opening was just as special.

“The opening was a blast!” he says. “We had a packed house and everyone had a great time. Anyone willing to take a night out of their busy schedules to celebrate the grand opening with us is a special guest, so yes, there were plenty of them.”

    I live in Hoboken and have never been there. Is this place only open when they’re filming?

      I was wondering the same thing.

        I remember lying in my room when I was in high school and writing in a journal to my future husband. I’d write all sorts of notes and questions and things I’d wonder or ask this man when I eventually met him. I would wonder where he was and what he was doing and if he was thinking about me too. It has always been such a strong desire in my heart to find a wonderful man to marry, someone who would love me and cherish me and appreciate me for the person I am. I always thought I would get married right out of college, just like my parents, so when that plan didn’t work out, I started to get discouraged. A school mate snatched my future husband away from my arms just because she had spiritual powers, all hope was lost to me before i came across the help doctor ( who i confided in, i told him my long story and he helped me regain back my lover with his prayers which is now my husband today. if you have any problem email the help doctor (

    Something is rotten in Denmark

    This seems odd, so they closed the original Little Town to rename it another restaurant then opened a new restaurant and named it Little Town? What was the point.

    • WestCoastFeed May 25, 2015 at 8:41 pm -

      I think the Ainsworthy chain is a higher quality place while Little Town is more of pub crawl spot. They wanted the larger space for the Ainsworthy and moved Little Town to a smaller spot.

        That’s what I was thinking WCF – that is might be a simple using the right space for the right venture.

    The restaurant business is the hardest business to succeed in. I don’t see where they’re going with this but good luck, I guess.

      Actually, I think the hardest business in the world is trying to sell black water. 😉 Lots of restaurants make it, not too much call for bottled pollution! LOL!

    Damn, Chris is big! He must be eating while he’s working at Little Town.
    Are Chris and Albie managers and/or owners of Little Town or are they real restaurateurs?

    Looks like Chris can’t stop eating the profits. I think they went in as partners with 2 other guys that actually know what work is, and how to run a restaurant. I thought they closed the one location to open this one? It all sounds shady.

    I’ll have to get there and give it a try. I haven’t been to Hoboken in a while.

    • Livie1 May 25, 2015 at 4:55 pm -

      Oh let us know if you go T’s Martini, I’d like to hear your impression of the place!

    • Marsbars09 May 25, 2015 at 5:54 pm -

      I didn’t know you were a New Jersyean T?

      • T's Martini Lounge May 25, 2015 at 6:05 pm -

        Oh yes I am! I thought about going to a Tre event just to see what really goes on, but decided against it. I’d probably start yelling at her and get thrown out by security!

    • toolate2care May 26, 2015 at 10:37 am -

      According to YELP, it seems neither of their places is worth the trip.

      • Pandora403 May 26, 2015 at 2:12 pm -

        I haven’t read the reviews on the new place but I’ve followed the reviews on Little Town for a while. You would think people must be talking about 2 different establishments because the reviews range from very good to terrible. The impression I’ve gotten is you really take your chances with the food and/or the service.

  8. Pandora403 May 25, 2015 at 7:58 pm -

    I think Chris should seriously consider the same surgery Lauren had done. He is getting huge. While he’s at it, maybe get a little work done on his face. I don’t mean to sound cruel but he has turned into one homely-looking guy.

    • WestCoastFeed May 25, 2015 at 8:43 pm -

      That’s an old photo of Chris. He is slimmer in more recent pix.

      • Pandora403 May 26, 2015 at 12:37 am -

        Glad to hear it. Now let him get to work on his face….lol.

    • side of Sour Cream May 26, 2015 at 12:27 am -

      He has much bigger problems than his looks. For one, he needs to cut the apron strings and get off reality TV. Learn how to support himself without any shady family help or he’s gonna end up like his uncle, or worse yet, his grandpa.

    Best of luck to them. They do seem to get off their butts and try, can’t take that away from them. Chris so obviously takes after Al’s side, must be very hard to constantly have to battle weight, especially working in the hospitality industry.
