Brunch powerhouse restaurant, Green Eggs Café, will be one of the pillar establishments at the new Seaport Pier, providing decadent eats with the freshest local ingredients, and featuring La Colombe Coffee. Green Eggs Café focuses on serving the highest quality product at the lowest possible price point, all while maintaining an eco-conscious philosophy on a daily basis. The Seaport Pier location marks the fifth Green Eggs Café restaurant to open. Other locations include, South Philadelphia, Northern Liberties, and Midtown Village in Philadelphia, as well as Miami.
“We are beyond excited to be joining the team at Seaport Pier this coming summer to add a destination to the already established North Wildwood dining scene. We will be bringing Green Eggs Café to the pier for a fun and delightful breakfast and brunch experience. Green Eggs Cafe’s team will also be adding a light and refreshing food and beverage menu Poolside! In addition, the team will be adding a bar and grille concept operating for lunch and dinner. All three models will focus on Jersey fresh products,” said a representative from Green Eggs Café.
SEAPORT PIER BAR & RESTAURANTS
Alcoholic beverages will be available at three designated areas on the pier – The Dive Bar, The Sand Bar, and the Starboard Swim Club. The creation of these three establishments is being spearheaded by hospitality veterans John Little Jr. and Gavin Wolfe.
“Being a part of this venture with BG Capital and the great city of North Wildwood is thrilling to us. We believe this is something the Jersey shore needs. We can’t wait to work alongside the great people of North Wildwood, Green Eggs, and the other exceptional entertainment entities. We look forward to being a part of its growth and success,” sentiments expressed by John Little Jr. and Gavin Wolfe.
The Dive Bar will incorporate the historical South Jersey Coastline and the old Deep Sea Diver outfit, and will feature kid-friendly equipment and apparatus. The Sand Bar, just steps away from the beach, will be the perfect public gathering space to meet, eat, drink and soak in the sun, as well as to host entertainment events on a grand scale. The Starboard Club is a modern, “resort-style” pool that will offer residents and tourists an alternative to the beach. Seasonal, monthly, weekly and daily memberships will be available. Amenities will include private locker rooms, pool side food and drink, even a swim-up style bar. A pool management company is expected to join the team.
At fourteen and a half feet above sea level, the building plans adhere to the most stringent codes for beach front development. All elevation, wind, and flood plain guidelines have been met according to both local and state code requirements.
Danny Govberg, co-founder of BG Capital remarked, “With our successful track record of increasing property value, BG Capital looks to do other projects and acquisitions like the Seaport Pier, functioning as a reliable operating partner, where we can contribute to the strategic and operational development for portfolio companies.”
