Our Philosophy

Rustica Lounge Bar & Restaurant, located in Cliffside Park, is the creative vision of its owner Tan Gur, an entrepreneur with over 14 years growing brands successfully in the food industry. Gur selected Cliffside Park because of his personal connection to the community where he lived during the early 2000s and for the town’s convenient location along the New Jersey Gold Coast.

Rustica delivers a unique fine-dining experience to diners with discerning tastes looking for an exceptional American-Italian menu made with locally sourced ingredients. Guests can feel at home in an elegant and cozy environment surrounded by original, hand-crafted artwork and live music.
