The Wayne Paris Inn will be replaced by a Mexican restaurant that could open before Spring 2019, NorthJersey.com reports.
Casa Don Manuel, as it will be called, is owned by the Sanchez family of Mahwah, who bought the property for $990,000 at an April auction.
The popular 17,000-square-foot banquet hall, a longtime landmark in Wayne and surrounding areas, closed in April 2017.
The Sanchez family also owns a Mexican restaurant in Suffern, N.Y., La Hacienda De Don Manuel.
Updates to the structure, floors, lights and paint will cost approximately $100,000, and investing in a liquor license will be about $450,000, he said.
