Zov’s Cafes Introduce New Happy “Hours”

The Southern California-style Mediterranean Cafés in Newport Coast and Irvine have introduced a new nightly Happy Hour menu that features Specialty Martinis priced at $7 and Bar Appetizers at $5, including: 

Grilled Min Chicken Kebobs – pomegranate molasses & cabbage slaw
Crispy Shoe String Potatoes – roasted red pepper aioli
Roasted Chicken “Sloppy Joes” – melted Swiss cheese & spicy tomato sauce
“Chips & Salsa” – crispy pita points with jalapeno tomato-cucumber relish & crumbled feta
Herb & Parmesan Rice Fritters – spicy tomato dipping sauce
Zov’s Nachos – crispy pita chips, cheese, tomato relish & guacamole (add chicken $1.75)

In response to the changing needs and desires of its core customers, Zov’s Cafés in Newport Coast and Irvine have new winter hours that will focus on the reinvention of the two Café locations.

“I credit the success and growth of the Zov’s brand over the past two decades to the fact that we recognize the importance of remaining fresh and really listening to our customers so we may better serve them,” commented Owner Zov Karamardian. “Our customers have been coming to Zov’s Cafés to relax, unwind and take a break from the stresses in their daily lives. It is for that reason that we have renovated our Irvine location to include a larger bar area and are currently in the process of doing the same in Newport Coast.”

Zov’s Cafes have also recently introduced prix fixe lunch and dinner menus that are proving popular. The two menus, reasonably priced at $12 and $19 respectively for lunch and dinner, offer a selection of a starter, entrée and dessert. The prix fixe menus are offered Monday through Thursday during normal business hours.

New Winter Hours for Zov’s Cafés in Newport Coast and Irvine are Monday – Thursday from 11 a.m.–9 p.m.; Friday from 11 a.m.–10 p.m.; Saturday from 8 a.m –10 p.m.; Sunday from 8 a.m.–9 p.m.; and a nightly Happy Hour from 4–6 p.m.

Zov’s Cafés serve the finest Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine in a chic, yet comfortable, environment. In 2007, two Zov’s Café locations were established – in Newport Coast and Irvine – to continue Zov’s tradition in Orange County. Both locations are open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, and offer a full take-out menu and special events catering.
