Stage Left to Celebrate 25 Years!

Stage Left Restaurant in New Brunswick is gearing up to celebrate their 25th anniversary. On top of that, the contemporary American steakhouse, owned by Francis Schott and Mark Pascal, recently underwent a renovation. The owners hired Alfano Renovations of Union County, N.J., and Dublin, Ireland-based Restless Design for a $200K-plus+ remodel of the dining rooms and bar. So what’s changed? New banquettes excude a clubby, yet comfy feel in the bar area (which is still centered by its 1930s vintage bar).

She began thinking about what kids with autism and other developmental disabilities enjoyed, and cooking came to mind.
