FOR CONTRACTORS, AN OPEN-DOOR POLICY

Rcsm2_010508On a stroll through downtown Red Bank Thursday, redbankgreen found an unusual amount of renovation work underway.

Some of it, like the conversion of the former Ashes Cigar Bar at 33 Broad Street to a Char Steakhouse, above, has been proceeding for months. But other sites that have long appeared dormant now seem to have stirred back to life.

Contractors were building interior walls at 60 Broad, where the 35,000-store Subway chain won approval last October for a sandwich shop. (Click to enlarge)

Crews were catching up on work for a new Ocean Café at the former home of Willy’s cheesesteaks at 21 Monmouth Street. (Click to enlarge)

Jr’s West End continues its build-out of a new all-night burger place at 17 West Front Street, the former home of Zuleyka’s Kitchen (Click to enlarge)

…and just a couple of (back) doors away, the same was happening at Boardwalk Burgers & Fries, which fronts at 20 Broad. (Click to enlarge)

Vacant for almost four years, 65 Broad is to open in the next month or so as a health food store called Healthy Habits. (Click to enlarge)

Work was also underway at 12 Broad, where Zebu Forno shut down in August after just five months at that address and is to be replaced by Biagio Wood-Fired Pizza (Click to enlarge)

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank business owner happier than to hear "I saw your ad on Red Bank Green!"
