A great spot for lunch, dinner and drinks. Central location to businesses and shopping, NYAJ has some good options on the menu. It can be a little pricey, but pop in during happy hour for great deals on appetizers. The biggest reason to visit is...More

This is my favorite restaurant when I visit Boston. They have the best gluten free bread & oil & garlic dipping sauce. Plus many gluten free menu choices. Great meal & service.

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.
