Dale recently opened Carrino Provisions, his take on a fine foods shop and restaurant — kind of like a petite version of Eataly — in Jersey City. The space is big and open with separate butcher, cheese, pasta, antipasti, coffee, and bakery counters. It has a sort of minimalist feel with polished cement floors and black and white signs hand painted on the brick walls behind each case. The stylized design makes sense, since the shop is a joint venture between Talde and his partners David Massoni, and John Bush, and HGTV's Kitchen Cousins stars Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri.and partners
The shop also hosts a casual sit-down restaurant, which offers a mix of traditional Italian panini, salads, and charcuterie platters with some slightly non-traditional ingredients like Japanese eggplant caponata and a Tuscan kale caesar with black garlic dressing and pumpernickel croutons. For those who prefer dumplings to antipasti, Talde is just next door.
