Saqe said he chose the intimate Plainfield location, named after his wife who has supported his dream to open his own restaurant, because it is also conveniently located near Watchung, Scotch Plains, and Fanwood.

Delivery service will be available soon, and online orders can be placed on Slice and Grubhub.  Saqe said he is still hiring for some positions, too.
