Managing Partner, William Burris is no stranger to the restaurant business. He owns several popular and successful places in Beach Haven (Long Beach Island) including the Black Whale Bar & Fish House, Parker's Garage & Oyster Saloon and Bird & Betty's. Burris has also owned restaurants in New York City and Bergen County.

The restaurant is hoping to attract locals as well as business types traveling through the area, as the state capital of Trenton is close by, and it's located between two major cites, Philadelphia and New York City.

"Ristorante LUCCA is destined to be the go-to place to meet for the legislatures, lobbyists, lawyers, union leaders and other business leaders who live and frequent the area. Located on a main thoroughfare close to the state capital in Trenton, this is a very feasible venture," Burris said. "The restaurant was conceived to be a special place where you can dress for the occasion, enjoy a terrific culinary experience and move into the piano lounge after dinner."

The restaurant does have a dress code you must follow. Click here for more details. It's nice to dress up and go out...and not have to travel to the city.

Ristorante LUCCA & Piano Bar is located at 144 Route 130 in Bordentown (the old Mastoris Diner).

Reservations are required for dinner. Please call (609) 262-0110.
