Who We Were & Who We Are Today

"Amazing is an understatement! The foods are different and creative, most times things I would never think go together, however get adventurous and try EVERYTHING! There's nothing I've ever tried here that I could say wasn't worth it." — Mike V. / East Hanover

The Cinder’s Wood Fire Grill & Craft Bar has been serving creative, delicious food, drinks and dessert within the restaurant and providing the best catering services in Morris County, New Jersey, for many years. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, we were forced to change the facet of our restaurant.

We are happy to announce the opening of our new Cinders Gourmet Market. Our incredible chef is keeping his creativity alive by providing some of the same foods, drinks and desserts our customers have loved and raved about for the past years.

The addition of our new Cinders Gourmet Market layout has also enabled us to expand on our flavorful food, delightful drinks and tasty desserts, offering more of a variety.

We are striving to keep the great reviews and awards going strong. Take a look at a few media outlets that have recognized us below.
