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.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Wow! What a great place to eat! They have a local menu that is delightful. The bread with romano cheese dipping oil is delicious and they serve it as soon as you sit which is great when you’re hungry right away. It was nice to find a restaurant with a menu that is not too fat or the portions too big. The service was very friendly and with good timing. I recommend it!

“Dinner and a movie”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Good food and drinks. Go eat before a movie and purchase your movie tickets for a discount price from your waiter.

“My favorite go-to restaurant”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

we love going to Joe's. We go for birthday dinners, quick date night dinners before a movie, family dinners, etc. I love that they have reservations and discount movie tickets. The menu is different without being too "out there". We always geta great meal, a good value for our money and good service. The bread is awesome with the dipping oil. I always like to see their new local menu items but love the old favorites liek the ale/mustrad chicken or the steak tips.

We've never had a bad meal at NYAJ. There are lots of inventive offerings and everything is always fresh and delicious. The servers are knowledgeableabout the menu and rarely get things messed up. We're big fans.
