NYP Bar and Grill has just opened their 4th location near Everett Mall, bringing in a fresh concept focused on locally sourced food and craft brew. NYP stands for New York Pizza which was the name of the original eatery in Lynden, WA. Since then, the focus has evolved to include gourmet burgers, an extensive happy hour, made from scratch pastas and Northwest craft beer.
Sigrid Novak, Everett head chef, remembers when New York Pizza only had one location. She started at Lynden as the day time cook and was been with the company since the first day – December 1st, 2008. She is currently the kitchen manager in Bellingham and is making the move to the brand new location on Everett Mall Way.
Sigrid is joined by General Manager, Ryan Zawisza. Ryan has been in the restaurant business his entire life and has worked locally for Emory’s and the Lodge. Ryan, who is as enthusiastic as he is experienced, has been a part of the Everett restaurant community for over a decade.
What is NYP bringing to Everett that is new and different?
According to both Sigrid and Ryan, you aren’t going to find a “corporate” feel at NYP. “I am excited about the feeling you get at NYP – it’s got a local touch”, says Ryan, “I can feel good about supporting our neighborhood.” Sigrid mentions the uniqueness of the mixed atmosphere. “You will find a stellar bar menu plus a family friendly dining experience.”
NYP is known in other cities for their legendary happy hour, bottomless mimosas during weekend brunch, the best place to watch football and really fun daily specials like Steak and Whiskey Wednesday.
What is your favorite thing to eat at NYP?
Sigrid: John Wayne Burger and the Smoked Salmon pizza. They are scrumptious. Both are NYP specialty items – you can’t find them anywhere else. One of these days, I am going to come to NYP and order a John Wayne burger and eat the whole thing for dinner! Now that we are smoking our salmon in house, it is even better – really representative of the Northwest.
Ryan: I love all the food but one of my favorite things is the Chicken Bacon Artichoke pizza. The white sauce is really good – made from scratch, locally sourced chicken and bacon. It is one of the best things on the Happy Hour menu too – only $8.
And what about that Happy Hour?
NYP is best known for its happy hour. Around 40 items, both food and drink, at amazing prices. The happy hour is available throughout the restaurant, not just at the bar. Offered twice daily and all day on Sunday. Choose any beer from their 24 taps for $4, a carnitas taco for $4 or their hand-cut, bottomless fries for $5. Yes, you heard it right…the happy hour fries are bottomless.
