Renaissance Properties Preps Sutton Plaza For Its Next Culinary Gem

Prime Location Enhanced to Spark Culinary Innovation in Sutton Plaza at Helmetta Township.

HELMETTA, NJ – In a strategic move to reinvigorate the vacant restaurant space at Sutton Plaza, once the long-time home of the popular neighborhood spot Café Mario, Renaissance Properties announces the completion of renovations to pave the way for the next restauranteur. The decision to revamp the suite stemmed from a desire to ensure the new operator will offer a space that feels new and will meet the evolving needs of the community.

Chief Operating Officer, Robert Adinolfi shares insights into the inspiration behind the project. “As real estate developers and property managers, our primary focus is to enhance the value of our assets. The former restaurant space held immense potential but had become stagnant over time as subsequent operators neglected to modernize it.”

The recent renovation process involved changes and enhancements aimed at facilitating the buildout as a modern dining destination. Adinolfi elaborates, “We removed outdated fixtures and equipment, revamped the interior with neutral tones, and created a more welcoming, open entryway and dining area.”

One of the key objectives of the renovation was to streamline the process for potential lessees looking to establish a restaurant business. Adinolfi explains, “By refreshing the space, we’ve made it easier for future restaurant owners to envision their concept and bring it to life.”

“With essential infrastructure in place, such as a functional hood vent, stainless steel wash stations, and utility connections ready for new equipment,” the revamped restaurant space eliminates some of the typical challenges and expenses associated with launching a new dining establishment.

Situated in well-established Sutton Plaza, long-time home of Helmetta Foods and the popular new Thai Food Addicts, the 2,000 square foot space benefits from excellent exposure on busy Old Forge Road at the intersection of Main Street. Adinolfi concludes, “We believe this renovated space is well-positioned for a new restauranteur to make it the next neighborhood dining favorite.”
