Looking for some table-flipping fun in New Jersey?! Well hold on to your ravioli because we’ve curated the perfect day tour that follows in the footsteps of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Lunch at Angelo’s of Mulberry Street
A New York City landmark since 1902, Angelo’s was famous for Italian food even before it started making cameos on The Real Housewives of New Jersey! Grab lunch here for prime people watching and you might even spot the RHONJ’s Teresa Aprea or her husband, Reno. Check out our full review or find out what happened here!
2. Tour The Brownstone owned by the Manzo Fam
With the original house built in the 1800’s, this craftsman estate is a true landmark that’s now lovingly cared for by RHONJ’s Caroline Manzo and family! Take a leisurely walk through the grounds and check out the pristine interior. On your way out, don’t forget to grab a jar of The Brownstone’s world famous pasta sauce. What happened here?
3. Get Glam at Cafface
Step into Lauren Manzo’s full service beauty bar for anything from a total makeover to a simple blow out! You can also shop among the many products available for purchase, from jewelry and nail polish, to handbags and clothes. What happened here?
4. Grab Some Gelato in a Spooky Spot
The RHONJ’s favorite spot for ice cream, gelato and Italian ice, Gelotti is sweet, frozen heaven! Err… next to an enormous cemetery. Weird? Maybe. Delicious? Definitely. What happened here? Check out our full review of Gelotti here!
5. Get Some “Jersey Sun” at Sizzle Tans
You cooled down with gelato, now it’s time to heat things up with one of Jerseyites’ other favorite pastimes – the tanning bed! It’s basically tradition at this point… and you’ll be happy to get some vitamin D especially if it’s a gloomy Jersey day. What happened here?
6. Treat Yourself at Nisha Spa & Salon
If you haven’t already noticed… being a Jersey girl is a whole lotta upkeep! Blow out? Check. Tan? Check. Now top it off with a mani/pedi at one of Melissa Gorga’s favorite places to gossip and get beautified! What happened here?
7. Raid Melissa Gorga’s Closet
Well… sorta! Melissa Gorga’s eye for fashion and style is truly reflected in the boutique as she hand picks pieces from an array of emerging designers to prestigious fashion forward brands. MG is pretty hands on, so don’t be surprised if you run into her at the store! What happened here?
8. Pre-game at the Manzo brother’s Ainsworth
Grab a pre-dinner cocktail at the Chris and Albie Manzo’s casual place and enjoy the stunning waterfront views of the New York City skyline. What happened here?
9. Flip a Table at LuNello
Ok, DON’t actually go flippin’ furniture… but DO enjoy a primo dining experience at one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey’s most memorable places! Yep, LuNello from Teresa Giudice’s table-flip heard ’round the world. Chances are, Danielle Staub isn’t eating here a whole lot these days, but if you see her, remind her what happened here!
