Renowned restaurateur Kamal Arora and Arora Hospitality Group’s latest culinary venture, Aarzu Restaurant, opens its doors to the community to celebrate its first-ever Diwali season this week (Diwali is on Sunday, October 30th). Specializing in modern Indian cuisine with a focus on taste, texture and presentation, the Freehold, New Jersey-based restaurant and banquet facility is hosting a week-long Diwali Festival with a specialized Indian New Year tasting menu, in-house henna artist and live tabla player, all in an attempt to engage and excite the community and educate them about the significance of this important Hindu holiday.
“The Indian New Year is an auspicious time when we celebrate with our families, and food is at the heart of that celebration,” said Arora, who has several other successful New Jersey restaurants under his belt. “We would like to invite the community-at-large to become a part of the Aarzu family and indulge in our Diwali festival to mark an important milestone for our newest restaurant.”
Post-Diwali, Aarzu will celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving and the holiday season by helping those less fortunate in their community. “For every meal we serve at Aarzu, we will DONATE a meal of equal value to our local food bank for the entire month of November,” said managing partner and philanthropist Archana Sharma.
