Above Restaurant to Become ‘1 South’: New Chef, New Menu, New Vibe

Foodies rejoice: another new restaurant is opening in South Orange.

1 South will open soon in the former Above Restaurant and Bar space, above Ashley Market in the heart of downtown.

Here’s more from SOVCA’s Bob Zuckerman in this week’s Village Vibe newsletter:

“By now you probably know that Above Restaurant and Bar has been closed for a few weeks. I do have some exciting news to share, which is that Above will soon be coming back as 1 South. 1 South will be offering American contemporary cuisine with Mediterranean influences, and will be under entirely new management with a completely new staff, new chef and an entirely new menu!”

Zuckerman said the opening date is not yet set but will be “very soon.” 1 South is already taking reservations for private events (Call General Manager Nick Sarantidis at 551-697-8108.)

He continued, “I was in the space earlier today for a sneak peek, and it’s looking super clean and really sharp inside! They were running training sessions with their enthusiastic new staff members while I was there. They also plan on offering their space up for local fundraising events and they are committed to giving back to the community….I think that South Orange is going to be in for a treat when they do open their doors, so be on the lookout for the announcement!”
