Opening Alert: Whiskey Bar & Bistro, Lyndhurst, NJ


The Whiskey is back! The former home of the Whiskey Cafe is now Whiskey Bar & Bistro, a “sports bistro” dressed in a modern rustic decor. That also means new ownership, a collective 20 years restaurant experience including Sushi Lounge (Hoboken, Morristown, Totowa), Taphouse Grille (Wayne), and Bareli’s (Secaucus).

Chef Stephen Mohren (Taphouse Grille, Brass Rail, Forest Hill Field Club and Catering) is handling chef duties with a menu (see below) of his takes on bistro classics. This includes an exclusive blend of chuck, short rib and oxtail patties crafted by Pat LaFreida for their burger. Artisan pizzas are available as 14 inch pies or served in 3, 4 or 5 foot options. The bar is covered with their “Drink Up” menu, crafted with familiar, yet different martinis and cocktails along with 8 wines on tap – along with bottled beer and wine.

Many institutions of the former Whiskey are still intact: Friday Happy Hour, Country Line Dancing and the American Cruisers Car Show. There’s also Chinstrap Sundays which will include an outdoor tailgate and “Gameday” menu coupled with drink discounts and a DJ – plus shuttle service to and from Metlife Stadium. Expect DJs a few nights a week and live bands on weekends.


The renovated space includes 26 TVs and 2 projector screens with a total occupancy is 300 and seating capacity of 185 – 40 of which are by the bar. Whiskey Bar & Bistro is currently open seven days a week.
