Down the Shore: Diving Horse Reopens for the Season


On the heels of Pub & Kitchen’s three-bell review comes word that co-owners Dan Clark and Ed Hackett are reopening their seasonal restaurant, the Diving Horse in Avalon for its fifth season.

Palmer Marinelli, who has cooked at the popular BYOB for the past four years will be the executive chef.

The Diving Horse opens this Saturday, May 24th and will serve dinner nightly through Labor Day. Marinelli, a South Jersey native, will serve a menu of coastal ingredients that will include many from nearby farms and Jersey Shore fishermen.

Diving Horse’s Palmer Marinelli Is Planning a Pop-Up


Palmer Marinelli has been spending his summer in the kitchen at the Diving Horse in Avalon. This September he’s going to be doing something a little more personal. On Monday, September 30th, the Pub & Kitchen vet is hosting a pop-up at Little Fish. Marinellis is calling the event Pink Rose after his grandmother. The menu will be inspired by restaurants in Puglia, Italy, the region his grandmother was from. The dinner begins with an antipasti which Marinelli describes as “an intense sprint of shared plates” followed by pasta, main course, cheese and dessert. Expect other extras like cocktails, digestives, coffee and even baked breakfast goods to take home for the next day.

The dinner is BYO and there will be two seatings at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. The experience is $100 per person and includes gratuity.  Reservations can be made by emailing
