There’s no doubt that Essex County is full of awesome restaurants and bars. To add even more to the variety, Skopos Hospitality Group just announced its 7th venture into the North Jersey restaurant business. Later this month, The Parkside Social will be opening at 706 Bloomfield Avenue in Verona. Read on to learn what we know about this tavern-style American spot.
The official grand opening of The Parkside Social is set for Wednesday, April 20th at 5PM. Details on specific dishes have yet to be announced, but the spot is described as a tavern-style restaurant and bar that serves up modern American fare. The menu will consist of share plates, entrees, a unique cocktail program, and more.
Some features of the spot include a custom oak bar with a lounge feel in the back dining room, and a seasonal outdoor garden space. In addition, the Oak Room includes a 30-seat dining area and fireplace – a space that is perfect for events. As for the vibes, the space is a classic American tavern with modern accents that comes from local inspiration.
“We drew inspiration from nearby Verona Park, which will be reflected in finishes throughout the space, that mimic the warm glow of the park’s lamps at dusk,” said Dean Maroulakos, Skopos Hospitality’s Creative Director.
To kick off the grand opening, The Parkside Social will also be partnering with Verona’s Holy Spirit Food Pantry. Guests can make non-perishable donations and receive a gift card for a future visit to the spot.
“We’re incredibly excited to join this close-knit community of Verona and its vibrant restaurant scene,” said Tom Maroulakos, Chief Executive Officer at Skopos Hospitality Group. “Contributing donations to the Holy Spirit Food Pantry is our way of giving thanks, and providing food for those experiencing hardships.”
