On Monday, April 19, Lafa Mediterranean by Zeina’s, a newly opened restaurant in New Hartford will be hosting a Grand Opening Community Day event. Fifty percent of Lafa’s sales on the day will be donated to the New Hartford Fire Department. The restaurant will be open 11:00am - 8:00pm.
In July 2016, the Zeina family was displaced from their home due to a tragic fire that left their house uninhabitable. Luckily everyone was safe and the structural damage was limited to the kitchen area. Lafa manager/owner Elias Zeina explains “The New Hartford Fire Department was quick to respond to the fire and were extremely empathetic during a challenging time for our family. We are honored to support this organization in any way we can.”
Lafa Mediterranean by Zeina’s is a fast-casual “walk the line” Mediterranean restaurant specializing in completely customizable grain bowls, pita wraps, and salads, with ingredients prepared in small batches in an open kitchen. The menu features a variety of classic Mediterranean favorites such as hummus, falafel, taziki, shawarma, and baklava. As well as a selection of hand-crafted modern Mediterranean options such as lamb meatballs, red pepper sauce, and quinoa tabouli.
Lafa is located in the Men’s Wearhouse Plaza at 4666 Commercial Drive, New Hartford and is open Monday-Saturday 11:00am - 8:00pm. For additional information regarding the Grand Opening Community Day event follow Lafa on Facebook and Instagram or contact manager/owner Elias Zeina at (315) 606-5232.
