What does Maplewood’s dining scene have over New York City’s? Answer: the most popular fine French restaurant in the tri-state area.
Restaurant Lorena’s, an acclaimed dining spot in Maplewood Village, was just voted best French Restaurant in the New York/Tri-State area in the Diner’s Choice Awards of online reservation service Open Table — nudging out such world-renowned establishments as Daniel, Le Bernardin, Jean-George and Bouley.
Opened in 2005 and owned by chef Humberto Campos and his wife, Lorena, the restaurant has long been a favorite, winning acclaim both near (New Jersey Monthly, the Star Ledger) and wide (The New York Times).
“Lorena’s is the rare type of restaurant that never fails to deliver excellent food, friendly and attentive service, intimate atmosphere,” said one Open Table reviewer. Another raved, “Lorena’s is perfect in every way. Nothing else needs to be said.”
