We had been to other NYAJ establishments, but not the Newburyport one. We made a reservation (key!) and asked to be seated outdoors. In Newburyport, it is good to keep in mind that there is seating in the outside front and back. We prefer the...More

We live locally so eat here on occasion. In the past, we've had good service and been pleased with the above average number of vegetarian items on the menu. Unfortunately, our most recent experience was not a good one: we were seated and given menus...More

I ordered the turkey burger and it was overdone and dry. The quinoa. Cucumber and olive salad with it was past its prime, maybe a leftover from yesterday? and with too much crumbled feta. We have eaten here before with consistently outstanding quality. Perhaps the...More

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.
