Anoush’ella opens 2nd restaurant in Lynnfield

LYNNFIELD, MA –Boston-based Anoush’ella Kitchen owned by Nina and Raffi Festekijian recently opened a second restaurant here in MarketStreet, building upon the success of their initial venture in Boston’s South End.

The name is Armenian and means “May it be Sweet,” reflecting Chef Nina’s belief that food prepared lovingly can awake the palate, enrich the diner’s mind and satisfy the soul.

“The menu,” she declares, “is meant to capture the explosive flavors of Mediterranean street food from my childhood. It’s also the food we raised our now three grown sons on in Winchester  – healthy and delicious.”

Their initial venture which opened in Boston in 2017 won praise and was named “Best Fast Casual Restaurant” in The Improper Bostonian magazine and lauded by The Boston Globe food critic Devra First who described it as what would happen “if two city restaurants, Sofra and sweetgreen had a baby.”

Anoush’ella uses fresh local ingredients including organic and anti-biotic-free meats, and spices come from carefully chosen select providers around the world. Local wines and craft beers complement the cuisine.

Nina and her husband, Raffi, met in Beirut and have been married for two dozen years, using their individual talents, and shared culinary roots to create a unique dining experience.

The new Anoush’ella Kitchen is at 1205 Market St., where the menu is available for delivery from Grubhub, Postmates, Uber Eats and Door Dash. Visit and
