About Za Za Restaurant:
The word Za Za in its true ancient form means “plenty for everyone,” and this mantra rings true for “Za Za Restaurant & Nitery,” a casual dining restaurant located minutes North of Boston, MA. Situated on Route 1-North, amongst a sea of old New England Kitsch, this hidden jewel serves some of the best seafood, steaks and regional-Italian fare presented by Chef Manrique Alvarenga. Items such as seafood risotto, herb-rubbed rack of lamb and Gemelli and Sweet Italian Sausage dot the menu. Nightly specials are always available along with a full Tapas Menu. A variety of 45 handcrafted martinis, spirits, wine and beer are served in the full-service 360° lounge. The 140-seat restaurant also boasts a 20-seat outdoor patio, private function room and dance floor. Za Za also doubles as a “Nitery” - featuring live entertainment and dancing; lending itself to a more “meet-and-greet” feel for a 30+ crowd after 11pm. Za Za is located at 114 Broadway Street in Saugus, MA. Reservations are recommended for dinner and can be obtained by calling (781) 233-6815.
