We’ve eaten at NYAJ other locations and were happy to see this spot during a recent stay in Acton. We’ve eaten here twice in the past two weeks and had the same experience both times: the food is good - not great - and the...More

The schnitzel, spaetzel and red cabbage were authentic and the Octoberfest beer was so well chosen for the event. Service was beyond expectations.

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.
