Chef Michael White and the Altamarea Group are excited to invite you to Due Mari. Located in the heart of New Brunswick, New Jersey, Due Mari, meaning "two seas" in Italian, opened its doors in September 2008. Due Mari keeping true to its name, features the freshest seafood from around the world and Chef White's authentic Italian cuisine. Upon entering Due Mari, you are greeted by bright blue, aqua and cream tones. Our sleek, vibrant circular bar, located in the center of the restaurant, invites guests to linger with a cocktail or enjoy our full menu. Due Mari is a place to meet family, friends and new acquaintances in a convivial atmosphere. In addition to the freshest Italian seafood, Due Mari's menu also features a wide selection of Chef White's signature handmade pastas and choice grilled meats. The broad range of cuisine, both inland and coastal, covers traditional and modern influences, allowing Chef Michael White and his culinary team an open canvas from which to draw on. Due Mari's seasonal and regional influences can be seen throughout each course of the menu with dishes like the Polipo: grilled octopus, pickled onion, celery, taggiasca olive. Or the Spada: local grilled swordfish, swiss chard, white bean, acqua pazza. The wine list at Due Mari offers guests a varied selection from the major wine regions of Italy. The wines are selected to compliment the cuisine for a harmonious dining experience. Whether they are looking for a well-known treasure or small, boutique wineries, the list provides guests the opportunity to explore Italy's myriad of wine styles. The list also includes selections from France and the United States for guests wishing to enjoy great wines from regions outside Italy. The extensive wine list is complimented by world-renowned mixologist, Eben Freeman's irresistible cocktail and bar list. Due Mari offers private and semi-private dining spaces for any type of event. From corporate functions to personal celebrations, luncheons, and cocktail parties, we're happy to customize all aspects of your event to create a memorable experience. Due Mari is thrilled to be a part of the New Jersey community, alongside our sister restaurant, Osteria Morini in Bernardsville. We look forward to welcoming you.

This was our first time here, but it won't be our last. It is a classy restaurant with an expansive menu. I enjoyed the Branzino while my friend loved his scallops! They have a fairly big wine list with wines from all over, not just Italy. It was a great place to have lunch on a rainy Saturday. I am... More

We have dined here on numerous occasions and always find the food to be excellently prepared, with fresh quality ingredients. One of our favorite special occasion places, and the bar is a good place to hang out too. Service is very good.

On a freezing cold Thursday night, my wife and I met some old friends and took a chance on this upscale dining spot. We were not disappointed. There were some great options on the menu. I had a butternut squash soup that was sumptuous. Every item that we ordered seemed to hit the right note. Highly recommend this restaurant. BTW,... More

The service was fantastic. The sea bass was outstanding. We had a tower of fish for an appetizer which was delicious. If you want to treat yourself to a very good meal in New Brunswick this is an excellent option.

The only word that can define this restaurant is INCREDIBLE. The service is great, the food amazing (they make their own pasta), and the atmosphere is perfect for any situation (a romantic diner, a friends encounter or a family reunion). The bar is also spectacular. The lunch menu brings us good options at very affordable prices.
