In the works for more than three and half years, the move by San Remo to Red Bank from its longtime home just over the town line in Shrewsbury is finally finito.
Back in 2010, San Remo owner/chef Giovanni Bougdour bought the space from a titan of Teutonic cuisine, Dieter Bornemann, who for more than 40 years ran his Little Kraut restaurant there, just a schnitzel’s throw from the borough train station. Bornemann lived in an apartment above the restaurant before retiring and moving to Las Vegas.
What took Bougdour so long to complete the move?
“I’ve just been busy at the other place,” he says. “That’s it.”
