The property was purchased in an auction and transformed into a high-end restaurant, which opened on June 16. With the opening comes about $150,000 worth of interior renovations, NorthJersey.com reports.
The 2.1-acre property’s pink stucco has been replaced with a darker orange shade, and both stories of the interior have been redecorated top to bottom by interior designer and restaurant co-owner Edelweiss Ávalos, who called the endeavor a “huge project.”
As Avalos manages the new eatery, her husband, Jesus Sanchez, continues to manage Hacienda Don Manuel, the Suffern eatery owned by the family.
Meanwhile, Andrea Sánchez, Avalos’ 19-year-old daughter, is helping out at the new eatery during her time off from college this summer.
The Alps Road location started to fill takeout orders on June 13, offering a gourmet menu full of traditional Mexican fare with a modern twist, such as fajitas, burritos, enchiladas, chimichangas, quesadillas and much more.
