Popular Restaurant/Catering Operator Pag’s will Relocate to 227 Franklin Ave. from Paramus

NUTLEY, N.J., Dec. 9, 2019 – Pag’s, a popular North Jersey restaurant and catering operator, will relocate from Paramus to Nutley in an expansion move, announced commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield. The restaurant opened in 2018 on the Paramus Golf Course; its new location at 227 Franklin Ave. will feature downtown dining in an established retail neighborhood.

Cushman & Wakefield retail leasing broker David Townes, whose team specializes in restaurant leasing, represented landlord Bao Lung Realty Corp. in orchestrating the long-term lease for the 6,300-square-foot, former Kyoto Buffet Restaurant space.

Roman Drukarov from Berkshire Hathaway Home Services NJ acted as tenant representative for Pag’s. Under the direction of Chef David Paglia, Pag’s serves both quality interpretations of classic American dining dishes and “daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of food,” according to the restaurant’s website.

“This lease came together within three weeks of our bringing the space to market,” Townes noted. “Pag’s quickly saw the benefit of this high-visibility, turn-key restaurant opportunity. The building is located on arguably the best block of Franklin Avenue – a high-traffic downtown thoroughfare that offers a vibrant mix of dining, retail and services. Pag’s will be a great addition for Nutley residents, visitors and employees of local businesses.”
