As of Monday, June 22, 2020, Mastoris Restaurant will temporarily cease operations as a result of government restrictions on the restaurant industry in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to June 22 the restaurant was open for takeout food and baked goods, however due to the economic realities of food costs, staffing and overhead, management has determined that this is no longer feasible.

"Certainly, we understand the seriousness of this pandemic and how it has affected millions of Americans," states Roger Price, Executive Vice President. "When other types of businesses that have more potential impact for spreading the virus are open, and restaurants in other states are open, it is unreasonable to be the last on the list to re-open in New Jersey. We and others in the industry are running out of the funds necessary to sustain our businesses."

As one of the largest restaurants in the state with 600 seats, Mastoris does not currently have facilities for outdoor seating. More importantly, the restaurant does not believe it can uphold its standards for quality of the food and service in that format. But they do believe they can open safely.

"Mastoris Restaurant has been completely sanitized and has studied the COVID-19 guidelines for restaurants that other states have put forth. We have a complete protocol to ensure a safe dining experience," says Price. Further, the restaurant has been supplying a complimentary Gentell hand sanitizer with every take out order throughout the pandemic, and will continue that practice when it reopens with a complimentary bottle of hand sanitizer on every table.

Mastoris intends to reopen as soon as possible and is asking for support for its business and the entire restaurant industry. To this end, Mastoris is asking their customers to call, write or email the Governor's office to request that the restaurant industry in New Jersey be allowed to re-open.

Our History

In 1927, our family came to Hightstown from Perth Amboy. My father and his brother bought land from Mr. Benjamin Zaitz and had a brand new lunch wagon built by Jerry O'Mahony from Kearny, NJ. It was transported on wheels to its present site...
