From fast food to haute cuisine, Newark's restaurants and eateries offer a wide range of options for every taste and budget.
The city's Ironbound District is famed for its many Portuguese restaurants, featuring traditional recipes handed down over generations from immigrants who first made Newark home in the early 1900s. Galician Spanish immigrants also made their way to the city in the 1930s, and their influence can be
found in Newark's numerous Spanish restaurants and cafes.
But the Iberian Peninsula is certainly not the only region of the world to have enriched Newark's culinary legacy. From Brazilian churrascurias to African-American soul food, Italian trattorias to modern American fare, options abound for enjoying a meal. We welcome you to explore all that Newark has to offer.
The Newark Restaurant Guide, categorized by type of cuisine, appears in the top left column of this page. The guide was compiled by the City of Newark's Public Information Office (NPIO) as a resource for residents and visitors.*
