It's a boy -- and a girl! Mark Tarbell picks a name for his new restaurant.

Mark Tarbell has finally chosen a name for the new restaurant he's putting into the old Chama space near The Oven, his great pizza restaurant in Belmar.

This second spot will be called Mark & Isabella.

"The name, like a good rock lyric, has no real story," he tells me (although Mark Falcone is a partner, and Tarbell also has a good friend named Isabella.) Mark & Isabella will run with an American-Italian menu, dinner only, seven nights a week, and could open by the end of the month. -- Jason Sheehan
