NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – The Zeina family opened a new restaurant in New Hartford Monday, in the plaza across from At Home on Commercial Drive.

The family has operated Zeina’s Café on Varick Street in Utica for more than a decade, and decided to expand with Lafa Mediterranean by Zeina’s.

Lafa offers healthy food in a convenient way, according to owner Elias Zeina.

“The reason we open this was because the way people are eating is changing; they are looking for quicker meals something healthier something really convenient,” he said. “We have online ordering we have Door Dash so we have a delivery service, we have curbside we're making it really easy for people to get their healthy Mediterranean fix not only in Utica but also a new Hartford now.”

Anyone notice our new signage on Commercial Drive today?

The restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday. You can also order online here.
