The Maize Restaurant, located in The Robert Treat Hotel, across the street from the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, is an ideal choice for pre-theatre dining when attending an event at the Performing Arts Center.
The restaurant is family owned and operated by Fernando and his son Wilson DeSousa.
The dining room decor has an upscale ambiance with soft lighting and long rows of white linen tables, and a comfortable lounge with hardwoods and stuffed furniture.
The menu features a selection of traditional American - Portuguese influenced items with a level of quality and preparation a notch below that of the many other Newark restaurants.
On busy theatre evenings, they offer a prix fix menu.
The service is impersonal.
