Naf Naf Grill is opening its first restaurant in Washington, D.C. at 1875 K Street NW. D.C. marks Naf Naf’s 37th location, with existing restaurants in Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
To celebrate its entry into the D.C. market, Naf Naf Grill will hold an event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, October 18 that will feature a free pita sandwich, fries and a drink for everyone who stops by (one per guest). Starting on Thursday, October 19, the D.C. fast casual restaurant will be open from 10:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily.
“At Naf Naf Grill, we make our fresh handmade food using traditional methods. Everything involves simple ingredients bursting with bold and rich Middle Eastern flavor,” says Paul Damico, CEO of Naf Naf Grill. “We have gained a loyal following in every market we have entered, and we can’t wait to get our ‘Naf On’ with the Washington, D.C. community.”
The centerpiece of every Naf Naf Grill is its open kitchen and bakery, where everything is cooked in view of its customers. Menu items include authentic, hand-made dishes like pillowy pita, crisp and tender falafel, award-winning spit-roasted shawarma and scratch-made signature Middle Eastern sauces ranging from mild Tahini, tangy Garlic, yellow curry Amba, seriously spicy green S’khug, and red chili pepper Harissa. Naf Naf Grill has something for everyone—customized pita sandwiches and bowls allow each customer to choose their own culinary adventure.
Naf Naf Grill is committed to making a difference in the community and is proud to partner with No Kid Hungry. During the month of October, Naf Naf will donate $1 to the organization for every entrée purchased at the D.C. location. Just $1 can provide a child with 10 healthy meals and the restaurant is committed to raising enough funds to provide 50,000 meals to children in need. 1 in 6 kids will face hunger this year and donations will help connect children to the healthy food they need through essential nutrition programs like school breakfast, summer meals and food skills education.
