Jamian LaViola has seen the future, and it does not only happen at night.
He’s overhauling the look, name and business strategy of Echo, the nightspot he owns on Monmouth Street that he now thinks may have veered a little too close to becoming “some stereotype of super-high-end nightlife.”
So now, he’s in the process of giving the former old-men’s bar a new look complete with roll-up garage doors for open-air dining in nice weather a new, lunchtime menu, and a new moniker, Jamian’s Food & Drink.
One stalwart of the past will remain, though: the weekly gig by reggae masters Random Test.
Get the bass-heavy reverb, if not the echo, only at Red Bank oRBit…
