About Crystal Plaza

Before it became a beloved event venue, the historic Crystal Plaza was originally a residential mansion. The initial Livingston, New Jersey-based residence was built in the late 1800s by famed architect Stanford White, who was responsible for designing the Tiffany building on Fifth Avenue, the original Madison Square Garden complex and the arch at Washington Square Park in Manhattan, among other landmark structures. While the restored building has since been reincarnated as one of the leading wedding and event spaces in the tri-state area, it still maintains the feeling of its 19th century grandeur, making it a distinct and picturesque setting for special days of all kinds.

Their impeccable, white-glove service begins the moment you arrive. Crystal Plaza hosts only one event at a time, ensuring that our dedicated team focuses singularly on you and your every need. From the elegant Grand Ballroom boasting numerous chandeliers (how the Crystal Plaza name came to be) to the lush gardens that change beautifully with the seasons, there are myriad backdrops to complement your wedding.

Crystal Plaza venue houses three separate kitchens for non-kosher, kosher and glatt kosher catering, and they offer a full range of services both on- and off-premises to further provide guests choices that suit their individual styles and beliefs. There’s no one-size-fits-all here.

Meet the Team


Max Janoff

Director of Sales

Max Janoff is the fourth-generation Janoff to operate the Crystal Plaza. He currently works along side his father, Allan, aunt Ronni and brother, Hunter. Founded in 1917, they are a family owned and operated luxury catering and event production company based in Livingston, New Jersey. Four Janoff family members—brothers, sisters, aunts and fathers —work side-by-side daily. And within their 150 team members, several generations of other families also call Crystal Plaza Group home—some have even found love inside the Crystal Plaza walls. It is because of this incredibly unique, intimate family unit and dedicated group that they have been able to go above and beyond for their clients for the last century. The team treats their guests like family. With keen attention to detail and high expectations for talent, they strive to make every guest feel special. They understand what it means to want what you want for your wedding or event. There’s no need to compromise on any of it, as every single aspect of our catering and events is customized. And while a classic palate will never go out of style, they continue to innovate to expand their fresh and modern offerings.
