Highlawn Pavilion Presents its New Fall Live Music Lineup

The Mark Peterson Trio: (L to R) Matt Kane, Mark Peterson, & Frank Ponzio.

Highlawn Pavilion has introduced a new fall lineup of live music, with performances every Wednesday through Friday from 7 to 10 p.m., and features the Mark Peterson Trio on Wednesday and Friday evenings through December in it’s Piano Room & Bar. Entertainment varies on Thursdays and includes the John Carlini Trio, the David Caruso Trio, and the Dave Stryker Trio. The musicians perform a variety of jazz, bossa nova, unique renditions of contemporary songs, and a fresh take on the American songbook.

For more information about the performers and the complete fall live music schedule, please visit the Highlawn Pavilion website at

Highlawn Pavilion, rated “Four Stars” by The Star-Ledger and “Excellent” by The New York Times, is also featuring an optional $32 three-course prix fixe Jazz Dinner that introduces new menu items with a choice of appetizers, entrees and desserts, available in the Piano Room and Bar area where the musicians perform. The atmosphere is a bit more casual than the Main Dining Room, and coupled with the entertainment, offers guests a lively ambiance that enhances the dining experience and makes for an eventful evening out.

“We’ve developed a schedule of some very talented musicians who bring a diversity of musical styles and play off the room very well,” said Keri Knowles, coordinator of Highlawn’s live music program. “We’ve found the music to be a great fit; it gives an added element to Highlawn’s ambiance while still making it possible for diners to enjoy conversation at the table or the bar.”

In addition to the Jazz Menu, a Bar Menu is served in the Bar area, the Piano Room and on the Patio, weather permitting. The à la carte Dinner Menu is served in the Main Dining Room as well as in the Piano Room and Bar area.  All of the restaurant’s menus can be found online at

Located atop Eagle Rock Reservation in West Orange, Highlawn Pavilion’s striking view of Manhattan is only the beginning of an extraordinary dining experience. The impressive grand vistas are matched by its unique brand of American fare with French infusion. Culinary treasures are prepared in its striking exhibition kitchen, which caps the restaurant’s stunning décor.

Executive Chef Mitchell Altholz’s dishes are inspired by locally sourced ingredients.  Much of the seasonal produce is grown on Pleasantdale Farm and greenhouse, located on the grounds of the nearby Pleasantdale Château, a venue also owned by the Knowles family, owners of Highlawn Pavilion.

Lunch is served Monday through Friday, and dinner is served every day.  Reservations can be made by calling 973-731-3463 or by going online at

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
