• Ending a 12-year vacancy, Cos Bar plans to take the paper off the windows at at 105 Broad Street Saturday, a company representative confirmed.

A chain beauty products retailer, Cos Bar took the storefront next door to (and just to the south of) Tiffany & Co., a space that’s been vacant since the now-deceased Larry Garmany moved his upscale clothing emporium next door to the former Steinbach’s department store building in 2005.

The similar-sized space on the opposite side of Tiffany in the building, which was built as a U.S. Post Office, remains vacant. Its last tenant was Rumson China & Glass.

Luigi’s Ice Cream plans to open this weekend, according to a post on its Facebook page.

As previously reported, the business, owned by husband-and-wife Luigi Beltran and Faye Salazar-Beltran, leased the former Subway sandwich shop space at 60 Broad Street.

Birravino on Riverside Avenue has a new beer garden, and it opens tonight, owner Victor Rallo tells Churn.

The 1,500-square-foot trelllised space, surrounded by greenery, was approved by the borough planning board in December.
