Spice Bazaar owners launch new restaurant in Westfield 

Spice Bazaar owners launch new restaurant in Westfield 

The two married owners of Spice Bazaar in Westfield, NJ recently opened a Mediterranean restaurant down the street called Lavash.

Spice Bazaar restaurant owners Kanika Bakshi and Simran Bakshi opened a new restaurant in Westfield, New Jersey. Both Kanika and Simran are known for their re-opening and rebranding of Spice Bazaar Modern Indian Dining, which relocated in June to 39 Elm Street. Unlike Spice Bazaar, their new venture concept will be serving up Mediterranean food under the name Lavash.

After their success at Spice Bazaar, they are now launching Lavash in Spice Bazaar’s original spot at 114 Quimby Street. During the first month of Lavash’s opening, Kanika and Simran will be giving out at least 100 free meals to Westfield, Fanwood, Plainfield and Cranford locals.

Both owners have not defined the menu items yet but will begin creating dishes soon.

Lavash will be open before the end of 2019. Stay tuned.
