About Us

At Shaghig restaurant, we are proud to offer a unique dining experience that is deeply rooted in our founder's history and heritage. Shaghig is the granddaughter of an Armenian genocide survivor who was passionate about the land and believed in building a solid foundation for future generations. As a result, he planted legendary olive trees that can survive for hundreds of years and established a Manufactory for olive oil extraction. Although the factory was stolen after the 2011 civil war in Syria, the olive orchards still stand, a testament to his legacy. 

Shaghig's love and connection to olives and olive oil can be seen and felt in every dish she creates. That's why we only use extra virgin olive oil in all our dishes at our restaurant. Our menu is inspired by middle eastern, Armenian, Levantine, Greek, Syrian, and Lebanese cuisines and is served up in a sleek and modern setting. 

We offer a one-of-a-kind backdrop to host your next event, whether it be a corporate party or rehearsal dinner, bridal/baby shower, engagement ceremony, meet-and-greet, birthday, anniversary, or whatever the occasion. The setting is a culmination of culture and aesthetics, set in an open format for added adaptability, and can accommodate up to 60 guests for a seated dinner and 120 standing guests. 

At Shaghig restaurant, our team strives to provide a space where people from all walks of life can come together over food and drink. Our warmhearted and friendly service will make you feel welcome, and our kitchen staff is ready to cook memorable dishes that are all Shaghig's improvised creations with a touch of rich experience. 

We chose Zakyan street in front of the park as our location because it offers a beautiful view of nature that opens your heart and brings freshness. You won't feel any chaotic downtown crowd while you are in the center but in a very relaxing zone. Our goal is to create memories and provide a unique experience for people who come for our special cuisine with unique tastes. We hope you will join us on our journey toward becoming your favorite restaurant. At Shaghig, your horizons of taste will open, and you'll experience a special place with extraordinary energy.
