Over-saturated with Allegria

I seem to post more articles about the Allegria than the official Allegria blog itself.

First of all, for those who like spas, examiner.com has a small article on the Allegria’s spa. Read – Rooftop spa to open in Longbeach, NY winter 2009. Organic juices and smoothies sound great, but I still have no idea what a spa actually is… I’m picturing a bunch of Turkish guys sitting around in hot and steamy poses.

Change of topic: Retail!

What’s going on with that ‘now’ vacant space next door? What was once rare ‘boardwalk’ retail is now an empty lot. The hotel itself will have a restaurant and gift shop. Will the lot be more retail? Perhaps a much needed parking lot? I hope they go with the latter. Too much retail will start to make our boardwalk look like the Atlantic City boardwalk! Blah…

  1. Wow, lots of weddings there! You are the 4th person to contact me with the same question. I pretty much know the same as everybody else. It looks like it will definitely be opened by December. The last I heard, they areshooting for a light opening at the end of August with a grand opening in September. Some other parts of the hotel might not be ready yet like Chef Todd Jacobs’ restaurant,but that probably won't effect the catering aspect. This hotel needs to start making money fast, so I am sure you are safe in December. The place does look great! It should be a nice wedding. Good luck!

  2. I hope that they have a REAL good upscale restaurant and bar there. I know that Long Beach has lots of restaurants but we need a REALLY GOOD one.With a really good chef and selection on the menu.

  3. Yeah John, I agree. I personally think Coastal Grill is the best place in town, but that's me. It's also a little bit pricey, but it's worth it. But yeah, the Allegria is apparently going to have a good one.

  4. I’ve been to both Coastal Grill and Allegria’s restaurant more than once.. Of course the atmosphere at the hotel is much more beautiful, but even so, I’ll stick with the less pretentious and less expensive and the better food and service at Costal Grill. George Martin knows how to run a restaurant, and the Hotel has a lot to learn about it.
