Tucked around a cozy corner just off the Boulevard in downtown Kenilworth, New Jersey lies a place that lives to meet all of your quality food and beverage needs. Ava’s Kitchen & Bar features a wood burning brick oven that churns out thin crackly-crusted pizzas with a flavor and texture that is like no other. Our mission is to re-imagine the possibilities of what pizza can be by looking back to the techniques of our ancestors. The use of lengthy fermentation, sourdough starters, stone ground local flours and other local seasonal ingredients.
Ava’s is here to provide our patrons with a warm, energetic environment to enjoy everything from a business luncheon to a late-night snack. Our warm, inviting bar and dining area will immediately transform your day and make you want to relax and unwind. Along with 32 beers on tap, soulful wines by the glass and an extensive list of craft whisky, spirits and cocktails there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy.

Food is Always fresh, creative and delicious! Distancing between indoor dining patrons was more than adequate. Love this place!

An eclectic menu with awesome pizza and inventive cocktails. Crispy brussel sprouts are the best!

Ambiance was great. Service and food was good as well, however the price was not. The honest part: We were disappointed in the amount of wine poured in 1 glass that we paid 12 dollars for. A suggestion for 5 stars: More wine in the glass next time! But it was still a nice time.

Second time I have been to Ava's and I will certainly return again. Food is delicious and offers a wide range to my meat-eating friends and to me since I do not eat meat. It seems a little pricey at first glance but the quality is worth it!
