Popular Bergen County restaurant reopens after closing doors through the summer

The Fireplace restaurant in Paramus is open again, after closing its doors for the entire summer out of an abundance of caution during the coronavirus pandemic.
Owner Patrick Reilly says shutting down and reopening is challenging, but his family's business means everything to him, and he just has to make a comeback.
"When there is a COVID freight train coming at this business, we decided to get off the track,” says Reilly. “We wanted to give indoor dining two weeks, just to make sure that nothing happened over Labor Day, which would have convinced Gov. Murphy to close again.”
The restaurant is also open for curbside, take-out and outdoor dining, in addition to indoor dining.
