Rudy's News and Events


No business has stood in Closter Plaza longer than Rudy's Restaurant & Pizzeria.

The store that first opened its doors in 1960 will be reinstalled in its original location after a two-year temporary stint in a spot across the street during reconstruction (SEE: Closter Mayor Anticipates 'First Class' Shopping From New Plaza ). Rudy's owner Charlie Osso, 71, is looking forward to returning home.

"I'm excited about the new shopping center," said Osso, who bought Rudy's with his brother Fred in 1970. "Sure, there will be a lot of competition from the new food stores and restaurants, but there will also be a lot more traffic."

Rudy's will share retail space with a Whole Foods, Bareburger and Distrito, to name a few.

The wait will be well-worth it for Osso, whose new space will be 400 square feet larger than the original, and feature 130 seats and a bar and brand new equipment.
