We (wife, daughter, and I) decided on the spur of the moment to go out for dinner, and quickly decided to go to NYAJ's, because we knew we'd get a good meal. Being a Friday evening, it was crowded, with a half-hour wait. The waiting...More

The bread and dipping oil at NYAJ is delicious and Appetizers were just ok, lettuce wraps were a little blah, nachos were very good, but very small portion, chicken dumplings were very good but only 5 smallish ones in an order. Frutti di Mare dinner...More

Great experience for lunch meeting. Excellent service, great quality food and was not rushed. Table available without having to wait which was great especially given time constraint at lunch hour.

What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.
