More About Us

We strive to serve as your competent and reliable partner in business. Our friendly and attentive staff is looking forward to serving you.

 

Nestled in the heart of Nutley, the American Bistro will surprise you with its wonderful, cozy atmosphere and extraordinary fare.

Injecting Italian mainstays with freshness and creativity, the Chef/Owner Ken Mahon lets his real passion for contemporary American cuisine shine through in selections that will please even the most sophisticated palates. Using only the freshest ingredients, such as free range chicken, milk-fed veal, and the finest seafood and produce available, he can take you through an unforgettable meal. From the minute you arrive, the staff greets you and makes you feel at home. When you are seated, you will receive a complimentary antipasto platter, just to get the taste buds going. Using only the best Italian ingredients, like the hand-made mozzarella, roasted peppers, soppressata, grilled squash and pepperoncini, it gives you a hint of what’s coming next. The extensive Specials Menu changes daily, generally depending on what is seasonally available. But be warned, the portions are large, and you will probably be taking home what you can’t finish! The menu does say, “Please leave room for dessert”, this is a suggestion well heeded. Because when the meal is over, and the server presents you with a tray full of sweets, it will take an amazing amount of will power to decline.

For the wine connoisseur, there is a comprehensive wine menu to satisfy all palates, and the staff is well-trained, to assist you in your selection. We also have one of the largest and most varied wine by the glass selections in the area, for those who are still seeking their favorite food pairings.

Catering, both on and off premises, is available. Please contact us directly with any questions, we will be more than happy to help you.
