It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton


GREAT CUTS: “One of the things I like about this work is that I meet all kinds of people. We’re like bartenders. We hear all the stories. Then, there are other customers who are quiet and don’t really want to talk. We see all kinds of people — all backgrounds, all ages, and all kinds of hair!” Tony Cifelli, owner of Nassau Barbers on Chambers Street, looks forward to giving everyone a great hair cut.

Brand New Barber Shop on Chambers Street Continues a Family Hair-cutting Tradition

It’s all in the family! says Tony Cifelli, a licensed barber.

“I’ve been cutting hair for 10 years, had been working in the area, and I always wanted to have my own place. I’d been looking in the area, and this location became available. I especially wanted to be in Princeton because my uncle Ed Cifelli had a barber shop here for 40 years, the Rialto, on Nassau Street.”


DINING OUT: “It’s wonderful when people come up and compliment us on our food and say how much they enjoy it,” comments Chris Cheng. He and his father John Cheng opened the new TUSK restaurant on Route 206 on Memorial Day weekend. Shown in the photo is hostess Colleen Ridder.

The reviews are in, and they are good!

Food critics and the public alike are enthusiastic about TUSK, the new restaurant at 1736 Route 206 South in Montgomery.

“We’re an American bistro, with world/fusion cuisine. Some Asian, some Italian, some American,” says co-owner Chris Cheng. “We wanted to be eclectic and inclusive. We have also made a point of being moderately priced. We want people to be able to afford a nice lunch or dinner out.”
