Dalya's Restaurant Set to Close in December with a New Indian Restaurant Taking It's Place

After 20 years in business, Dayla's Restaurant at 20 North Road is expected to close on December 20th. The Restaurant has been owned by Frans and Mita van Berkhout since it opened in 1994. Dalya's was named after Frans three daughters DAnielle, LYdia, and Alexandra. Previous to Dayla's, Frans and Mita ran Le Bellcour in Lexington since 1978. According to a note sent out to friends of Dayla's, while they both still enjoyed owning Dayla's, Frans just turned 70 and is looking to retire. Many of the kitchen staff have been with them for 20 years or more.

In it's place, a new Indian restaurant named Holi is expected to open in February. The new restaurant will be run by Amarjit Singh, who currently is an owner at Zaika Indian Bistro on Main Street in Woburn.

Stay tuned for more details.

Dayla's owners seemed to be well liked and respected in Bedford. It's good to see that the location will remain a restaurant.

Bedford has been lacking an Indian Restaurant. I expect it to be well received. With it's open location next to Bedford Farms, it also seems like a good place to add outdoor dining.
