THE OFFICE TAVERN GRILL MAKES ITS GRAND RE-ENTRANCE IN SUMMIT; NOW OPEN

Guests Invited to Experience Newly Revamped Location, Menu and 40 Rotating Beers on Tap

MORRISTOWN, NJ (December 21, 2015) — The Office Tavern Grill, serving modern twists on traditional American comfort classics, has officially reopened its Summit, NJ restaurant. Ideally located at 67 Union Place, directly across from the train station, the much-anticipated and newly renovated restaurant re-opened to the public on Monday, December 21. The exciting new Office Tavern Grill offers guests a completely revamped food and drink menu, and a vibrant bar with 40 rotating beer taps, an extensive craft beer and specialty cocktails selection, combined with a fresh new look and feel. A reinvention of the iconic New Jersey restaurant brand known simply as “The Office,” its newest incarnation, The Office Tavern Grill, is a crossroad where upscale and casual meet in a chic relaxed dining environment.

A modern vision of what it used to be, The Office Tavern Grill in Summit is a 5,000-square-foot food and beverage oasis with a rustic wood and steel vibe complimented by old-style copper beer kettles and temperature-controlled recessed wine coolers – providing its guests city-chic ambiance nestled quietly in the suburbs. As beautiful as the food that comes out of its kitchen, The Office Tavern Grill is efficiently redesigned to comfortably accommodate guests in its dining, bar and outdoor areas (seasonally). The Office Tavern Grill is the perfect venue for sport and pop culture events year-round, and offers private event space to accommodate personal and professional celebrations. Additionally, The Office Tavern Grill’s new Summit location will add approximately 100 new jobs to the local economy.

The Office Tavern Grill’s culinary team prepares the best gastropub-style food this side of the Hudson. Using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients whenever possible, The Office Tavern Grill provides guests with a variety of selections from its chef-driven menu, including signature items like Sweet Potato Nachos, Mushroom Flatbread, Hilltop Dog, Duck Pot Pie, Chicken and Waffles and more – plus traditional Office favorites like burgers, wings, flatbreads and more, paired with the best micro brews, regional favorites and international staples hand-selected by its own Cicerone. Additionally, The Office Tavern Grill will offer a new limited-edition Road Trip menu, which will feature signature dishes from around the country, paying homage to a select state in the U.S. each month.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to officially be open to the public – reintroducing them to The Office Tavern Grill in Summit,” said Steve Baliva, vice president of operations, 40NORTH Restaurant Group. “The former Office restaurant was such a beloved concept and a great neighborhood place, so we are confident that the community will truly love the newly revamped Office Tavern Grill. From gastropub-style fare to 40 beers on tap, we have so many new and exciting offerings for our guests that we know it will become a favorite in Summit again.”
