I am never disappointed here. I always get the mustard encrusted chicken and I love it. The green beans are always yummy and done to perfection. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed our $1 oysters and shrimp, goat cheese salad, mustard chicken w/mashed and a veg... Centine wine by the glass (wine by the glass a little pricey for this type of place... better by the bottle). Service was very good.

While this is a chain restaurant the fresh seasonal menus and craft beer selections make it feel like a hometown find.

I enjoy NYAJ's because it doesn't feel like all of the other chain restaurants trying to add decent salad and GF "healthier" options. It already has this down with wonderful salad options, which are both filling and delicious. Super crunch with grilled chicken is a...More

Looking for good low calorie lunch. Had the mustard encrusted chicken with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. Perfect. Ate at the bar. Dana was great. Helpful selecting lunch and provided info on calorie count.

Dont get me wrong here. The service was good, but the menu was just meh.....Had the chicken parma and while the chicken was good the rigatoni below it was in my opinion a bit too aldente. I like my pasta soft. Otherwise no issues.

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the pasta as it was served. Since we do make everything to order you can always ask for the pasta to be cooked soft and we'll be glad to do it for you.

Great food. Always custom prepared. I like the standards like the mustard crusted chicken but I always look for their monthly specials The bread and parmesian oil is the best free starter. Love it

Description
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.
