The restaurant offers West Coast-style cuisine, which emphasizes healthier food using local and seasonal ingredients, like locally roasted coffee, cage-free eggs, grass fed cow’s butter, according to the owners.

John Lanni, co-founder and owner of the Thunderdome Restaurant Group, said he is “thrilled” to be part of the Mason-Deerfield area.

“Maplewood is a breakfast lunch and dinner, fine casual cafe that appeals to all ages,” Lanni said “We offer a variety of sandwiches, entrees, salads, pastries, brunch items, cold-pressed juices, and locally roasted coffee.”

Maplewood Deerfield’s initial offerings will include breakfast, brunch, lunch. Dinner service will begin later this month.

“We are very excited to see a chef-driven concept like Maplewood opening in Deerfield Township,” said Jim Flick, Deerfield Twp.’s economic director. “It’s exactly the type of restaurant our residents have expressed interest in. This is a big win.”
