Restaurant Nicholas is now

Barrel & Roost

Since the opening of their acclaimed Restaurant Nicholas in 2000, Chef Nicholas Harary and his wife, Melissa, modernized the concept of fine dining. This mainstay of Red Bank garnered some of the industry’s highest praise, including being named as Zagat’s highest-rated restaurant in New Jersey for 15 straight years, a 4-star review in the New York Times, and a position on several national “best restaurant” lists.

Now, with Barrel & Roost, the couple strips off the white tablecloths and serves up a bold new menu: made-from-scratch food that’s crazy-delicious, yet entirely accessible any night of the week. Set in a newly redesigned modern farmhouse interior, Barrel & Roost is just the place to enjoy great food with family or old friends, or to a grab a drink at the bar for date night.

Fresh. Local. Modern.

Chef-Driven Comfort Food

Barrel & Roost keeps several of the most popular dishes from Restaurant Nicholas while expanding into the realm of comfort with a twist. Unwind over irresistible bar snacks, oysters from both coasts, brick-oven pizzas, or short-rib burgers with house-made pickles. Or linger over epic, seasonal desserts you can’t help but say “yes” to. From vibrant salads bursting with local ingredients to rustically refined entrees such as chicken pot pie and hand-made pastas, there is truly something for everyone.

Your Weekend Just Got Better

Classic Brunch With A Twist

However you start your weekend, head to Barrel & Roost for the best Bloody Mary you’ve ever had. Chef Nicholas takes select brunch classics and spins them with a modern touch. Whether your morning calls for Cajun Eggs Benedict, Roasted Chicken Salad, or Colossal Brioche French Toast with Caramelized Banana and Bourbon Maple Syrup, this is brunch the way it was meant to be: unpretentious and delicious.

Signature Spirits & Craft Cocktails

Barrel & Roost adds the “craft” to cocktails, taking them beyond the everyday spirit & mixer combination.

The well-appointed bar also features craft beers on tap as well as an expertly curated wine collection. Stop in for happy hour, stay for a nightcap.
