Opening Alert: The Rail Yard Tavern, Fair Lawn, NJ


The Rail Yard, first reported back in July, has been soft opening for a week or so and is ready to celebrate their grand opening this coming Wednesday, January 15th beginning at 2pm. The neighborhood family restaurant is being run by co-owners Bob Piccoli (former owner of Pub 17 in Ramsey) and Susan McLaughlin.

The from scratch kitchen is a mix of standard American fare with heavy traces of Italian and more. The basic menu features a large thin crust pizza menu, sandwiches, pastas and really “something for everyone” according to McLaughlin. Specials will rotate depending on what’s fresh and available.



The 120 seat restaurant has a train theme, with the building being backed up against the Radburn train station. The space is broken into two halves, one side with the pizza oven and seating, the other more of dining, bar and lounge area. The bar features 11 draft beers, plus a large wine (most by the glass) and spirit selection (A full cocktail program is expected sometime after the grand opening).

The Rail Yard Tavern is open 7 days for lunch (till 4pm) and dinner (till 10pm) with a late night menu from 10:00pm-12:30am. A Sunday brunch is in the works and coming soon.
