The Whitechapel Projects - Nano-brewery in Long Branch NJ

Wow–I’ve stayed away during the summer but was REALLY hoping they’d have fixed the types of issues you mentioned. The food is VERY good, but there doesn’t appear to be much in the way of hospitality training. A little could go a VERY long way!

It is a cool concept but just a few signs would be SO GREAT! A big map when you walk in saying what is what. Then in each room, here is what this room is and what you can order here. The front area is table service, the back isn’t. You can’t order a cocktail in the back or some beers. It is a mix bag. Also, they weren’t able to do courses in the back but maybe they could somewhere else???

Wow–didn’t know all of that! Why the hell wouldn’t you be able to order anything from the bar in the Chapel room?!? That’s bizarre.

We didn’t go in the Chapel room. It looked like maybe there was a private event that was wrapping up. We camped out in the backyard which was great but all the food arrived at same time and the printed menu that states which beers you can order where was wrong. But, we will go back. Really enjoyed the food, beers and the relaxed environment. The kiddo loved being able to explore.

If I’m understanding correctly, it’s like a food court, except there’s no common seating. And nothing is labeled.

If I wanted to go to a puzzle room, I’d go to a puzzle room.

I mean, you aren’t wrong exactly but it isn’t a food court. You order food either with a server or at a bar (or outside from a trailer thing). Tons of seating options but yeah the concept needs some help to make it cohesive. The space is cool.

It was fun while it lasted: https://www.app.com/story/entertainment/dining/2020/02/08/nj-restaurants-marilyn-schlossbach-whitechapel-projects/4607869002/?fbclid=IwAR1jgCrIADdCUwkAlUeKZoUhV91-zVJThdUfa9WMQqMKsbu90QlKV6YJTLI

I can’t tell if this is worse than becoming a Mccloones. However I look forward to possibility of another epic thread assuming the staff doesn’t like any reviews
People might post

Uhboy. :crazy_face:

My reading comprehension skills might need work so hopefully someone can shed light on this. She is stepping in now do to the food portion or was she involved the whole time? We went a couple of weeks ago and the menu was really limited. Everything was solidly eh to ok.

Stepping in.

And growing mushrooms.

Maybe if you take a cpl of the (Magic) mushrooms you won’t notice how bad the food gets?

Ugghhhh yeah I had read this elsewhere, not sure how I missed this post. I hesitated from posting it because I didn’t want to be accused of bullying her with another anti-Marilyn thread so thanks for taking that burden away from me!

Well I’m pretty sure a solidly eh to ok get’s you at least 1 star on the NY Times.
