Longtime downtown Haverhill restaurateurs Issa and Jamal Zefta are being celebrated for nearly 30 years of service to the local community, with their Maria’s Family Restaurant being named October’s Business of the Month by the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber Membership and Marketing Manager Hillary Rogers presented the Zeftas with the honor earlier this month, lauding the Essex Street eatery for excelling in “community involvement, economic growth and customer service,” according to the city’s small business group.

Serving Italian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fare since 1989, Maria’s also features a banquet room with seating for 200. The restaurant and function space is currently accepting holiday party reservations by phone at 978-521-1472.
