It seems like it's been a revolving door of restaurants in the former IHOP building on Millburn Avenue, but the owners of Q.J. Green Garden hope to change that.
The Asian fusion restaurant will hold its official grand opening on Thursday, although the restaurant has been open to test the kitchen, said Jason Wang, whose father owns the restaurant. Wang owns several restaurants in Massachusetts.
Q. J. Green Garden is located where the Thai Grill was located until earlier this summer.
"We need to make a change here," he said of the location's revolving door of restaurants in recent years. "We have greener food. We make it a little bit special."
The grand opening will feature a number of specials, and Wang said they have been visiting area businesses to offer free lunches. They want everyone in town to get to know them, he said. Wang described the town as a friendly, nice community.
The restaurant has both sit-down and take-out service. The menu boasts Thai, Chinese and other Asian-style dishes. There is a lunch special menu for $5.95 each that is served 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
