avern 5 is a restaurant in Pompton Plains, New Jersey set to open this month. The space, formerly Gilly’s, was purchased by the Carbone brothers who are four newcomers to the restaurant industry who run various businesses in the area including synthetic grass installation, outdoor lighting and irrigation. Tavern 5 will be headed up by Chef Anthony LoPinto and will focus on Italian American classics and other upscale casual dishes. After purchasing Gilly’s, the Carbone brothers gutted the entire space, installing everything from new foundations to a brand new kitchen.2Gilly’s had employed Economy Paper and Restaurant Supply in Clifton, New Jersey as their supplier and designer, a company Tavern 5 also entrusted to help with getting the restaurant up and running. A family owned company for three generations, Economy has been supplying and designing for restaurants since 1932. The task of outfitting the kitchen was handed to Michael Konzelman of Economy, with some of the primary challenges being outfitting a kitchen that was partially in a basement and providing up to date, efficient appliances that would 2make the most of a small space. “Tavern 5 wanted to do Italian-American and classic American comfort food, so we thought it would be great to have a pizza oven in the kitchen” said Konzelman. This matched up with LoPinto’s Italian American background and Tavern 5’s desire to sell artisanal products. Therefore a WoodStone oven was installed in the kitchen to ensure top quality pizza but also give the chef the ability to experiment with things like finishing dishes under high heat or cooking fish on cedar planks. In addition to the pizza oven Konzelman pushed for a three foot Accutemp griddle that would maximize efficiency in a small space. “The
