Downbeach Business Buzz, July 2022

Even with inflation and recession fears, Downbeach business is booming in the Summer of 2022.

The Margate bayfront along Amherst features a wide variety of economic activity.

The Island Aqua Park in Margate is a massive hit. We predict it will be even more successful once back-bay dredging is done. Watch video above.

At far end of Amherst on Longport border, Lamberti’s Margate project languishes.

Speaking of Lamberti’s, their former Longport causeway restaurant is now called LaBarca.

La Barca, the ALL NEW, Italian influenced Oyster, Crudo & Craft Cocktail Bar in Longport.

Marino Hospitality Group which runs three Bistro di Marino locations in South Jersey has opened La Barca in Longport, the former Caffe Luciano Lamberti at the Seaview Marina.

Assortment of Oysters, Crudo, craft cocktails, craft beers & an extensive wine list. Ocean views throughout the entire restaurant.

ADDED BONUS: Don’t miss popular DJ Johnny Looch happy hour at La Barca.

  1. LAMBERTI looks worse from the back than the front, and that is saying something!
    Languish, it should vanish!

  2. It is not that simple. Is it for sale? Or is it up for foreclosure? Yes, then maybe SOMEONE will purchase it and complete it. That would be great, wouldn’t it, for all concerned.

    Went to LaBarka this past weekend. Food was very good as was the staff and vibe of the place. Will definitely be back soon.
