Popular Southern Nevada Mediterranean restaurant Bok Bok Chicken is ready to debut multiple locations throughout the Southern California area this year, with Downtown Los Angeles and Eagle Rock locations already serving residents and Culver City opening this fall. The fast-casual restaurant has five locations operating in Southern Nevada, offering classic Mediterranean cuisine from deeply rooted family recipes with a modern farmhouse twist that brings families and communities together. This expansion marks eight Bok Bok Chicken locations on the West Coast with more on the horizon.

Los Angeles resident and owner Silva Chamanian started Bok Bok Chicken in 2018, but always possessed a passion for food alongside her Armenian culture. Chamanian has been a restaurant investor for many years at the popular Armenian restaurant Carousel, in addition to owning and operating a string of awarded fast-casual brands including The Terrace Sidewalk Café in Downtown Pasadena. Atop of her numerous business ventures, it has been Chamanian’s vision to develop a new restaurant concept in an untapped market on a local, national and international scale. Chamanian and lifetime partner Jacob Tchamanian took family recipes passed down from generations and created a simple menu that highlights Mediterranean flavors in a setting where guests can feel like family.

The pair opened the first Bok Bok Chicken in Las Vegas in August 2018 to great reception and quickly expanded as the diverse cultures and neighborhoods throughout the valley presented an opportunity for the brand to share their dishes with a larger community. In June this year, Chamanian opened the first Bok Bok Chicken location in Downtown Los Angeles and Eagle Rock in late August.

Busy Southern California residents can satisfy their cravings conveniently at the Downtown Los Angeles location at the corner of 2nd Street and Main Street and the Eagle Rock location on Colorado Boulevard and Eagle Rock Boulevard. A Culver City location is set to open this Fall, marking the third Bok Bok Chicken for the greater Los Angeles market. The restaurant group already has plans under way for additional locations in Century City and Venice Beach.

Known for their show-stopping shawerma on the spit, free-range whole rotisserie chicken served with toom (traditional garlic sauce with lemon and olive oil) and made-to-order falafel, Bok Bok Chicken also offers an impressive lineup of classic Mediterranean side dishes such as tabbouleh salad (minced parsley, green onion, tomato, cracked wheat, lemon juice, olive oil and spices), lentil soup (potato, Swiss chard, garlic, lemon and spices), cheese boreg (fried dough filled with cheeses, green onion, parsley, spices and zaatar), sarma (grape leaves stuffed with rice, onion and spices), mutabbal (eggplant and tahini), rice pilaf, baklava and more.

All new locations debuted with new additions to their menu including a beef tenderloin kabob sandwich, hand-cut skin-on fries, chicken kabob sandwich, beef tenderloin kabob plate, chicken kabob plate and honey barbecue chicken wings with tangy dipping sauce.

All new Bok Bok Chicken restaurants will continue to offer Family Day every Saturday where kids receive a free kid’s meal with the purchase of a regular adult plate.

Bok Bok Chicken debuted in Las Vegas in August 2018 and has five locations operating with their sixth and largest location hatching at Town Square this Fall. Bok Bok Chicken has hatched a partnership with Station Casinos, launching two new locations inside their North Las Vegas properties – the recently opened location at Santa Fe Station near the Sports Book and at Texas Station inside the Food Court to open within the next year. The restaurant, with its focus on family and community offers a numerous amount of fundraising opportunities for all schools and foundations. Bok Bok Chicken has participated in charitable initiatives such as a significant school supply donation to the Salvation Army and raising funds for the Youth Cancer Baseball Tour, among others.
