We hope you heard us with Bernard Spigner on WCTC, 1450 AM. Thursday, 9/19/02
  • This is an effort to save the last Hungarian restaurant in New Brunswick.
  • The Chardas has been located on the corner of Plum and Somerset Streets for the last 80 years and has provided fine Hungarian cuisine to many happy satisfied customers.
  • The City of New Brunswick wants to relocate the Chardas for the benefit of RWJ's expansion efforts. If this happens, it may not be able to stay in business any longer.
  • To ensure the continued enrichment of one of the oldest ethnic cultures in New Brunswick, we strongly believe that the area of Somerset Street from Division to Bethany Streets should be declared an historic Hungarian district. This small section of Somerset Street contains several Hungarian churches, the Hungarian-American Athletic Club (HAAC), the Hungarian Scouts building, the Hungarian Heritage Center, and the Chardas restaurant. We need to preserve what is left of our Hungarian heritage now, before it is too late!
