Sonia Boyajian dines regularly at – at least once a week since the restaurant opened in 1998 – so the restaurant restaurant gave her a booth of her own.
On Wednesday, the Watertown Square eatery honored Boyajian by dedicating the Sonia Boyajian Booth.
"It’s only fitting that the booth where she spends so much time be hers in name as well as in spirit," says Steve Silverstein, founder and CEO of Not Your Average Joe’s. "This is the first time we’ve ever done a seat plaque so it’s quite a honor for me to be a part of this."
CEO Steve Silverstein dedicated the Sonia Boyajian Booth and a toast to the honoree.
Guests and friends of Boyajian attended the celebration at Not Your Average Joe’s. It was also an evening when the restaurant supported the Watertown Education Foundation, an organization which Boyajian served as president for two years.
The event coincides Not Your Average Cause, a fundraising program created by Not Your Average Joe’s to support local nonprofit organizations. Throughout March, 15 percent of all purchases made by the Foundation’s supporters will be donated to the Foundation.
