Hello Tuxedo,

There is quite a bit of social media activity over the re-birth of Take A Break. First, I want to thank the Eberlings for the memories they created over the years and their commitment to the Town of Tuxedo. They will be proud of what is to come. Steve Germano has purchased the property and fully intends to restore it to it's former glory. Steve wants to preserve the architecture and history of the Town of Tuxedo. I met Steve 4yrs ago when he wanted to purchase the Red Apple Rest but was unsuccessful. I stayed in touch with Steve over the past 4 years and was finally able to convince him that Tuxedo is the place he wants to move his business to. Steve's first experience with Tuxedo came when he rode his motorcycle through our beautiful parks and he became enamored with the area. Now when Steve comes to Tuxedo he drives his car as he fears for his life on 17 in Sloatsburg but that is an issue for a different day!


Steve runs a successful business, pastapizzastore.com, and he intends to use Take A Break as his working showcase for customers while providing a much needed service to the community. Take a Break will be serving pizza, pasta, panini's, ice cream and gourmet coffee. Steve is already looking at another business in the corridor and will soon be calling Tuxedo home as he will be relocating to Tuxedo.

Looking forward to the grand opening of Steve's!
