Heights Café Becomes Giulia

What was the Heights Café, at Montague and Hicks streets, will re-open soon as Giulia, a restaurant featuring Italian specialties, and more closely tied to its next door neighbor under the same ownership, Dellarocco’s. We’ve heard, thanks to a neighbor who asked, that the burgers for which Heights Café was known will still be on the menu. You can sign on to Giulia’s mailing list here.

    We certainly have a lot of Italian restaurants in the neighborhood. I guess the biggest selling point here is its sidewalk location. And good to see something opening on Montague for a change.

    The name makes me think of Giuliani, utterly unappetizing…

  • Angela De Marco

    believe the name of the daughter of one of the owners.

    Now that “Queen” is no more, perhaps this will be a worthy replacement?

    Oh no, Queen is gone? Been away seeking out nature for Covid respite and didn’t know that. So sad. Was our favorite restaurant, and I have little faith Giulia’s will be that quality.

    Queen is closed? It doesn’t say that on the website – and Seamless still says it delivers for Queen.

    Perhaps, but they should have thought about possible negative associations before choosing a name.

    Judging from the mediocrity of the Heights Cafe, That would be a resounding NO.

    Such anger!

    Reported on this here a while ago. They gave up the ghost months ago, quietly, with no fanfare.

    Not that I ever ate there. Was meaning to go for literally decades, but never got around to it, sigh…

    I will miss the Queen. They are opening a new restaurant in NJ https://totalfood.com/brooklyn-old-school-italian-charm-ristorante-mv-nj-hamlet/

  • Moni

    You missed the best Italian food in the neighborhood. The brothers knew how to cook — a combo of traditional Italian informed by classical Escoffier.

  • Moni

    Lucky Bernardsville. I will miss those wonderful seared scallops with pancetta, the shrimp Fra Diavolo, and those fine fried zucchini slivers we used to share for appetizer.

  • Moni

    It’s a shame. We already have an extrremely unrematkable Italian joint in Buon Gusto.

  • Eddyde

    Not only the best in the neighborhood but on par with the best of Manhattan.

  • Moni

    Absolutely! And not cramped or undeservedly priced, not to mention the
    professional serving staff. And old Frank the maitre d’ — I guess the place had to go out of business for him to retire, knee replacements and all.

    Oh cool, I’m excited to try the new spot. My growing up home.
