Our Story

A landmark destination in downtown New Providence, Prestige first opened its doors in 1967. Always welcoming quests for breakfast, lunch and dinner the family restaurant is currently owned by Dimitrios and Harry Vardas. Continuing a family tradition, the two brothers bought Prestige from their uncle Tommy and have simply continued doing what he taught them. Good homemade food, attentive service, a clean environment and reasonable prices are the cornerstones upon which Prestige operates on a daily basis. A diverse menu, available all day, the same familiar servers greeting you with a smile and one of the brothers on the premises all the time, are some of the reasons why we are known as the go-to place in New Providence. As our food culture changes, Prestige is constantly evolving as well. We have made a commitment to upgrading and complementing our menu with organic offerings, local produce, USDA Prime meats and fresh caught seafood. We are continuing the reputation Prestige has built through the years, by offering our customers high quality options within a casual environment that keeps all coming back. You will notice that we offer pure cane sugar Cola, Simple Heinz Ketchup, Natural Smucker’s jellies and marmalade, i.e. products that contain no high fructose or, ingredients that belong to a spelling bee contest.

Known among many regulars as the “Cheers” of New Providence, Prestige has a full bar with craft beers, rated wines and high quality spirits. Our customers can now enjoy a draft beer from one of J ersey’s craft breweries with their dinner or, a Bloody Mary with brunch. A variety of seasonal handcrafted cocktails are also available. Employing bartenders with 20+ years of experience we will gladly make your favorite drink just the way you like it.

When you enter our doors you step into a local gathering place, owned and operated by the same family for over 35 years, that is renovating, updating and investing in downtown New Providence all the time. We are the family restaurant many customers see their grandchildren seat in the same booth their children sat when they were bringing them as kids (must be the fresh baked chocolate chip cookies). For some we create new memories, for others we bring old ones up and for all we want to be your “home”. Unwind watching TV by yourself on the counter, have a laid back date night in a cozy booth or, have a family dinner in our Sunroom, Prestige is always there for you and your family.
