Aiming for a March 25th opening, owner Avi Roth wants to deliver an upscale feel with down-to-earth prices at his planned Queen Anne Road location.
Budding restaurateurs might shy away from starting a business in today’s economic climate, but for Avi Roth, there’s no better place and no better time than now to open Gotham Burger Co. on Queen Anne Road in Teaneck. Transforming the former site of Burgers Bar wasn’t easy, but Roth said the realities of the current economy allowed for him to negotiate on construction costs and get the place gutted and renovated in two months. He also was able to select his staff from a large talented pool of job applicants. “It’s a daunting task opening up a restaurant in general, but in this economy, it’s almost better to open up during this time,” Roth said. “You’re going to get a better bang for your buck.” Even though Roth was able to save on …

Degraw Avenue restaurant, part of Korean chicken trend, emphasizes quality over speed.
Making your customers wait is typically bad for business. But for the owners of Peck Peck in Teaneck, the wait is worth it for their made-to-order Korean-style chicken. Stacy and David Yu, of Parsippany, run the restaurant. David was a sushi chef for 20 years prior to him and his wife opening Peck Peck in April 2011. “Right now Korean chicken is rising,” Stacy said. “Everyone loves it; it’s a new trend.” Business has been steadily growing thanks to word of mouth and their central location at the corner of Degraw Avenue and Queen Anne Road.
