NAYA’s Grand Opening Celebration 11/17 & 11/18
November 17 - November 18
NAYA will open its second New Jersey location at 330 Market Street, Montvale, NJ, 07645, nestled within the North Market neighborhood of luxury apartments, offices, dining, entertainment, and other amenities on November 17. Originating from the heart of New York City 13 years ago and making its New Jersey debut in Paramus earlier this year, NAYA’s fast-casual, attractive dining experience has proven to be very popular, gaining widespread acclaim for its authentic ingredients, bold flavors, and unparalleled attention to detail. Just 45 minutes from NYC, with the skyline visible from the location, NAYA North Market will offer the northern Bergen County community the excitement of uncovering the vibrant and tantalizing world of delicious Lebanese flavors, a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered.
The NAYA team will present a fun and flavorful neighborhood Food Festival Weekend for its Grand Opening, beginning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Nov. 17th at 12 pm, alongside special guest Top Chef Charbel Hayek, NAYA Owner Hady Kfoury, the Montvale Chamber of Commerce and Montvale Mayor Mike Ghassali. On Friday, Nov. 17th and Saturday, Nov. 18th from 12-7pm each day, NAYA’s food and experiences will be on full display. Food sampling booths will offer bite-sized portions of NAYA’s core offerings: Mezze and Apps, Shawarma, and Falafel. After this tasting journey, guests can build their own bowl or roll and “Pay-What-You-Wish,” with all proceeds supporting Center for Food Action (CFA). CFA helps combat hunger, homelessness and improves the lives of individuals and families facing poverty in Northern New Jersey, spanning 100 towns in Bergen County, including Montvale. The donations will directly support CFA’s program providing Thanksgiving meals to families in need.
Throughout the weekend, there will be opportunities for the whole family to win prizes and goodie bags. In the spirit of generous hospitality that NAYA celebrates, guests can take advantage of Buy One Get One (BOGO) on bowls, rolls & kids meals from Sunday Nov. 19th through Sunday Nov. 26th (in-store only).
