New Chef’s Tasting Menu at The Manor Restaurant

The Manor Restaurant, West Orange, NJ

Each course is paired with an optional wine selection, chosen by The Manor’s wine director to compliment the flavors of each dish. The Manor’s full dinner menu is also still available, featuring a well-balanced selection of classic favorites and new creations.

À la carte diners can enjoy the Chef’s Tasting Menu in The Manor’s Terrace Lounge, an inviting room featuring an oak bar, gorgeous floral arrangements, a masterful pianist, and generously-spaced tables, allowing for a more intimate dining experience.
