Equus in Bernardsville Closed

Guess they shut down two weeks ago - not really going to miss it much

The Bernardsville News - March 2, 2012

BERNARDSVILLE – An upscale restaurant in one of the borough’s historic landmark buildings has been closed.

Equus at 1 Mill St. had ceased operating by Friday, Feb. 24. A sign on the front door said, “Closed for renovations, reopening soon.” Its web site offered a similar message but no further details.

Exactly when a reopening might occur remains a mystery. The phone at Equus had a similar recorded message and said calls would not be returned

  1. How weird! Yesterday afternoon I was talking to someone who mentioned that Paul Viggiano, who was once the chef/owner at KC's Chiffafa House in Mendham, was now at Equus. I wonder what's going on?

    I only ate at Equus once and I have to say it was very good. This was about two years ago, on a Friday night, and the place was bustling. The outdoor patio was full and the dining room inside was about half full (it was a hot night).

      My wife and I enjoyed it. I think the economy has curtailed upscale dining.
