I have exciting news. The new restaurant that takes over the former Shrimp King in Robbinsville, Louie’s by Chef Jason, could be open as early as next week, fingers crossed.
Two local guys, popular chef Jason Dilts (from Robbinsville) and Dominic Maglione (from Hamilton), have come together for this new venture and they couldn’t be more excited about it.

Chef Jason has quite the reputation in town. His many fans have followed him from Revere Restaurant in Ewing to his own restaurant Chef Jason 1275 in Cranbury and will no doubt be regulars at this new restaurant.
Louie’s by Chef Jason will serve “American cuisine redefined” with dishes like steaks, chops, chicken dishes, pastas and seafood on the menu, like Chef Jason at 1275.
You’ll be happy to know that several customer favorites (and Chef Jason’s favourites) will also be on the menu… Short Rib Mac & Cheese, Colossal Crab Cakes and my favorite, Boom Boom Chicken (Chicken Parmigiana with Vodka Sauce). Yum.
Let me tell you about the restaurant itself. If you’ve been driving around hoping to peek inside like me, lol you’ve noticed quite a bit of work going on. The building has been completely remodeled…new carpet, counters, paint, lighting, seating and more. It has been modernized to make it more visually appealing.
There will be seating for around 80 people in two dining rooms and in the near future this will be the perfect place to hold your private party for any occasion.
When I spoke with Maglione he told me that they had their last inspections this week and really hoped to be open by Thanksgiving. Stay tuned.
Maglione’s family has a history in the restaurant business and previously owned Fedelo’s in Lawrence Township and Original’s Pizza in the Briarwood Mall in Hamilton.
Incidentally, Louie’s by Chef Jason is named after both partners. Louis is Maglione’s middle name and you know Chef Jason.
I have no doubt that it will be a great success.
Look for the grand official opening on December 1, 2022.
Louie’s by Chef Jason is located at 1111 Route 130 North in Robbinsville.
