Fromagerie set to reopen with new owners, new team and new look

RUMSON – The iconic Fromagerie Restaurant is set to open its doors again with new owners Paul and Enilda Sansone, who recently purchased the property and business.

“Enilda and I are excited with this opportunity to keep the tradition of Fromagerie alive,” said Paul Sansone, owner of Sansone Auto Mall on Route 1 in Woodbridge.

Celebrating the grand opening on July 25, the restaurant has been completely refurbished and redesigned with a new bar and upstairs dining area, which will also feature a full bar and entertainment on the weekends.

“We want to restore Fromagerie to its original festive glory and recreate a fine dining experience consistent with this classic restaurant,” Sansone said.

In order to do this, Sansone has brought on industry veterans Steven G. Botta and Angelo Bongiovanni to manage the restaurant. Elizabeth Jacobson, who has worked for celebrity chef Bobby Flay, will be Fromagerie’s general manager.

Fromagerie will feature a continental menu prepared by the chef, Botta. House specials will include such items as a succulent bone-in swordfish, classic Caesar salad made table side, escargot, a classic duck with a cherry and grappa sauce and flavorful 35-day dry aged steaks.

There will also be an array of desserts made by Fromagerie’s very own pastry chef.

In addition, Fromagerie’s wine cellar will be diverse with wines from around the world.

Fromagerie Restaurant is located at 26 Ridge Road in Rumson.
