Newark Restaurants With Dining Reviews

The Ironbound section of Newark, a Portuguese neighborhood with Ferry Street being its commercial hub, is noted for it's moderately priced Portuguese, Spanish and Brazilian restaurants.

They can be easily spotted by the flashing neon lobster signs, huge menus and portions of dishes, throngs of waiters shuttling platters of food and sangria to noisy crowds of diners enjoying a festive dining experience.



If you are on a day trip, and in the mood for an ethnic lunch or snack, try one of Ironbound's cafes and bakeries. Enjoy a sandwich or some pastry and a cup of dark South American coffee.

With the revitalization of Newark, new restaurants are emerging to offer the diner a variety of new dining choices.
