Opening Alert: Elia, East Rutherford, NJ

Elia, a modern Greek Mediterranean restaurant and bar at the former Park & Orchard location, has opened in East Rutherford. The mother and daughter owned restaurant focuses on seafood and “Mediterranean with a twist”.

The menus (View Menus) are from executive chef Louis Jose Falcon, who brings his expertise from various restaurants in Manhattan. Cooked in an open kitchen, plus they’ll have a fresh fish display on ice — along with a wine list close to (or above) 300 bottles, original cocktails and more like their rose water sangria.

The completed renovated space is described as a “white washed Mediterranean atmosphere”, including new lighting, colors, and furniture — which has been imported from Greece.


After hours they hope to transition to a lounge, with DJ on Friday and Saturday nights. Elia is open weekdays for lunch and dinner and weekends for dinner.
