shadowbrook: a history

A New Jersey Landmark completed in 1907, Shadowbrook hosted its first social function in 1941. It was acquired in 1971 by the renowned Zweben family, who bring over a century of combined experience to Shadowbrook.

Robert Zweben, the current owner, is the third generation of this family of restauranteurs and caterers. A graduate of the acclaimed Cornell Hotel and Restaurant School, Robert has operated Shadowbrook for the past 30 years with his wife Ronnie, and the success of this husband-and-wife team is evident in every finely tuned detail of Shadowbrook.

The mansion is a showplace of museum-quality art and antiques from around the world. As you enter Shadowbrook, it is as if you've taken a step back in time; the furnishings and chandeliers, even the stairwells and ceilings each have a remarkable history all its own. The Zwebens have one simple approach to maintaining excellence at the mansion - they insist on absolute, uncompromising top quality.
