Essex House West Orange -- reopening

I drove past the Essex House on Northfield in West Orange today and saw a sign that read: opening soon for lunch and dinner. I've never dined at the Essex House -- my one visit was for a local political event. Anyone have any news?

    My coworker is friends with the owners family. The children of the original ownership are bringing this back. I dont have much info on the dates or menu.

    This was a fixture growing up. Never had the chance to dine here but my grandparents spoke of it like we would The Manor, Ryland Inn or similar....
