I think careful cooking is love, don't you? The loveliest thing you can cook for someone who's close to you is about as nice a valentine as you can give. Julia Child


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, a la minute sauteed 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


Sit back. Relax. Sip. Rekindle. Dine. 

The best times are those spent together:

family + food + friends


We don't just bake it:

  • all of our crackers, breads + pastas,
  • all of our soups, stocks + sauces,
  • all of our desserts, toppings + ice creams,

are made from scratch in our Cranford kitchen.

We exclusively feature this menu every Wednesday
We serve this menu Thursday through Sunday. We do not offer this menu on Wednesday.
