A Coastal Gathering Place in Asbury Park

 
 
 

We invite you to join us to share an experience filled with inspired cuisine, refreshing drinks, and authentic coastal vibes.

Barrio Costero was built by four friends with a passion for creating remarkable experiences through community, collaboration, and sharing delicious food. Our name, Spanish for “coastal neighborhood,” embodies our approach to seasonal cooking and genuine hospitality in the vibrant seaside community of Asbury Park.

Mexican folklore has an expression for these rare and serendipitous connections: “once in a rabbit moon.” Our logo, rooted in Aztec tradition, represents our commitment to creating one-of-a-kind experiences that add up to more than the sum of their parts.
