A unique Mediterranean and Persian Inspired culinary experience
Zaferon Grill is a new concept restaurant offering a unique experience inspired by Mediterranean and Persian traditions and flavors. The ambiance is contemporary, casual and inviting. The open-kitchen design allows guests to watch their food being prepared.
Our culinary creations are fresh and nutritious featuring organic, hormone and antibiotic-free meat and poultry, wild caught fish and organic produce finely blended with herbs and spices. All of this is complemented by flat bread baked in-house daily.
There will be something for everyone to enjoy at Zaferon Grill. Guests can enjoy freshly blended juices from the juice bar or one of the many items on the menu which also include gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options.
We use locally sourced products so long as available, and are committed to sustainable practices.

There under revered chef, Craig Shelton, Charles embraced seasonal cooking, farm to table cuisine, and worked with world class ingredients for New Jersey’s most distinguished diners. Several stops in other eateries, including the opportunity to work on the opening team of Elements in Princeton, rounded out Charles’ early years in the kitchen. Building on what he had learned, Charles traveled to cities like London, Paris, Montreal, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, and Boston with the sole purpose of exploring the culinary scene. Though trained in French cooking techniques, in his passionate pursuit of quality and excellence, Charles remains enthusiastic about international cuisine and hospitality.
