We live in Watertown and my girlfriend is gluten-free. NYAJ is our hot spot! This location is cozy and the staff is great. Almost never a long wait, I usually book ahead with open table. They have one of the best gluten free menu's in the area, which is critical for us. You will enjoy!

Everything I ate here exceeded my expectations. They start you off with a serving of bread with dipping sauce flavored with parmesan and red pepper flakes that is really good, The chicken quesadilla with homemade pineapple and mango sauce was great, but on the second visit, the rosemary skewered scallops were such an amazing blend of flavors, I would try that again and again most likely. The scallops come with couscous which is mixed with squash, carrot, bacon, and some baby spinach leaves. It was a beautifully prepared dish that tasted even better than it looked.

Just ate a couple of hours ago here. NYAJ never disappoints. Our waitress was Devyn, who was the best waitress I have ever meet, personable, quick, polite, and alert. Our food was perfect. Devyn was constantly giving us refills on my watermelon lemonade and water, where most of the time you have to ask, but she was on top of everything. We gave a 25% tip since she was so good.

We were impressed with the upscale casual atmosphere and cheerful decor.
Lunch began with a generous serving of home baked focaccia bread with a garlic/cheese olive oil dip. Our entrees included hand breaded, pan seared cod and the parmesan chicken tower. Both were excellent and reasonably priced. The portions are generous and the food is superior to most of the restaurants in this area.
Our server was Megan and she was efficient and pleasant.
We will definitely return.
