A restaurant featuring a mix of Caribbean and Mediterranean fare appears headed to the Pleasant Street area on the westside of Watertown.
Sharp-eyed Twitter user Sean Graham spotted the sign for Nzuko on the side of the building at 60 Howard Street, just off Pleasant Street.
Nzuko started in Framingham in 2016, and also has a location in the Natick Mall. The name means “gathering” in Nigerian, and the restaurant’s website says, “All of our dishes are always sourced organically and fresh, and prepared with global recipes that promote nutrition and health. Healthy doesn’t have to be boring though, as all of our dishes are packed with flavor and spirit.”
The menu on the Nzuko website includes entrees such as jerk chicken, lamb kabobs and griot seasoned pork, a Haitian dish. There’s also a list of “vegan delights,” such as a veggie wrap and a black bean and quinoa burger. Other offerings including salads, smoothies and soups.
The restaurant has also been featured on WCBV Channel 5.
