PAIRINGS, a family owned and operated restaurant, brings together globally inspired cooking, local and sustainable practices and the comfort of grandma's recipes. We welcome you into our dining room to slowdown, to disconnect from your electronic devices and to reconnect with family and friends over our food and your wine. Your dinner is leisurely paced as all of your meal is thoughtfully crafted for you.

Our plates, which change based on seasonal availability, extend from gourmet to comfort. Each dish is prepared with ingredients strategically paired to intrigue and invigorate, to stimulate and satisfy; just-baked breads and desserts, freshly rolled pastas, slowly braised meats, à la minute sautéed seafood and churned daily ice creams, leave no palate untingled.

Sit back. Relax. Sip. Rekindle. Dine. We welcome you into our house with open arms.



The best times are spent together: family + food + friends

Sit back. Relax. Sip. Rekindle. Dine.

Our pairings evolve through the seasons and are ever changing.  We do not offer every item every day, but base each menu on what is best at the market that day. The menus are just a sample list from which today's dinner menu is derived.

  • All of our breads and pastas,

  • all of our stocks and sauces,

  • all of our desserts and ice creams

are made from scratch here in our Cranford kitchen.


We exclusively offer this menu every Wednesday

Served every Thursday, Friday, Saturday + Sunday. We do not offer this menu on Wednesdays.
