Sonoma Chicken Coop is coming to Parsippany.
A new chicken restaurant is coming to the township. After more than three years of planning, Sonoma Chicken Coop, a chain of California-based restaurants, will open the doors of its new Parsippany location next door to Fuddruckers at 3159 Route 46. Construction is in progress at the site, but the bright yellow marquee sign announcing Sonoma's specialties—grilled, rotisserie and sauteed chicken—is a clue that the opening is imminent. Also posted prominently on the building is a sign announcing that hiring for the restaurant is underway. A corporate spokesperson for Sonoma Chicken told Patch that every branch of the eatery is individually owned. In the case of the Par-Troy branch, it is owned by Fuddruckers, with whom it will share real …

Planning Board OKs application to place new chain restaurant on Route 46.
The vacated building at 1540 Route 46, which once housed the Southwest-themed restaurant Chili's will have new life soon as Houlihan's Restaurant and Bar. Just weeks after Patch asked readers what they wanted to see fill the space Chili's left behind last year, the Parsippany Planning Board Monday approved a minor site plan from Hasbrouck Heights-based ACE Restaurant Group, which owns Houlihan's, to allow the new eatery to take over the property. Board member Robert Keller told Patch that the approval came very quickly, largely because he said ACE plans to make very few changes to the site. "They will be squaring off the two front corners of the building, which are currently rounded," he said. "They are also adding a few more seats. …

Authentic Mexican restaurant opened on Mother's Day.
Hard work has run in Luz Matos’ family since before her father came to the U.S. from Mexico 20 years ago.

Beverwyck Road in Lake Hiawatha. Maddy’s combines authentic Mexican cuisine with pizza creations that recall back to her family’s history working in pizzerias. “My mom always wanted to open up a restaurant, not a pizzeria," Matos recalled. "What we did was we worked hard, we got the loans, we opened up the space and so far it’s gone pretty well.

An upscale, modern Indian restaurant is preparing for a soft opening this weekend on Route 46 in Parsippany where two Montville Township cast members from "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" had a different vision for the location.
