(For the full list, check out this article from Culture Trip.)

1. Mompou

If you’re a fan of Spanish tapas, then you will love Mompou. This restaurant is located in the Ironbound District and is a great place for a casual dinner or even to catch some live music. As with any great Spanish restaurant, don’t leave without sampling the wine.

2. Elbow Room

For a super casual but unique experience, check out downtown Newark’s Elbow Room. This restaurant derived its name from the fact that all its main dishes have…you guessed it…elbow macaroni in it. It’s savory, and your taste buds will love this delightful restaurant.

3. 27 Mix

For great fusion cuisine and fun nightlife, then head on over to 27 Mix. Whether you come for a sit-down meal or you’re there to see the band, you can’t go wrong with their unique dishes featuring influences from around the world.

4. NICO Kitchen+Bar

For a nice dinner out, try the upscale NICO Kitchen+Bar. You can sample “upscale Italian” cuisine and stay a while, or you can catch dinner before a show at the Performing Arts Centre (the restaurant is actually part of the PAC).

5. Allegro Seafood Grill

Last but not least, consider some quality Portuguese food at Allegro Seafood Grill. The restaurant is located in the heart of the city, so you can easily grab dinner, a glass of sangria, and then enjoy the area’s other cultural attractions.
