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.

“Macaroni was awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

My meal was the flounder and I found it to be good but nothing to really write home about. However the Macaroni with chicken was wonderful. My wife had it and shared a few bites. i only wish I had chosen it. The beer was different, regional, and dark. Pricing was typical for Leesburg... a bit on the pricy side. The restaurant was clean and modern, with small booth space. The bread / garlic with oil was tasty, and the lemonade was reported to be good.

“Great Food & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Just have to write about one of the best and most fairly priced meals ever... not our first at NYAJ, and won't be the last. But today's Seared Tuna Salad was SO good... perfectly cooked (rare, just like I enjoy) tuna on a crunchy and flavorful slaw (loved the fennel and mango). And dessert - big enough for two - was a Fourth of July take on Strawberry Shortcake, red white and blue with the addition of blueberries. The shortcake was one of the best I've had, with plentiful ice cream and whipped cream along with the berries. So impressed with their generous birthday gift, too - a free entree AND dessert!

“A favorite place for happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Great prices on drinks and food at the bar. The food is well-prepared, fresh and delicious. Love the heirloom tomato flat bread with spinach with the house sangria. It's so hard to resist and not fill up on the bread/olive oil dip with hot pepper flakes, cheese and garlic. NYAJs is the only restaurant that I have ever ordered meat loaf (stuffed) for dinner, and it was better than my home-made one! The service and atmosphere are pleasant, plus they are very accommodating to substitutions and special menu requests.
