TAP Portugal  


Even thousands of kilometres away from Portugal, you can start the night with a good plate of codfish, prepared as tradition. Afterwards, try to find more traditional and family bars or more modern locations.

Newark has a large Portuguese community, so it's not difficult to find a place where you can enjoy national food. Names as Bairrada Clamb Bar, Roque & Rebelo, Sagres, Ibéria (www.iberiarestaurants.com) or Gaivota indicate the menu will be familiar to you. Many are located in the Ironbound area, where there are also many Spanish restaurants and cafés. Brazilians and Argentines constitute the most recent wave of emigrants and their culinary specialties are already part of Newark's gastronomic guide. On the website www.zagat.com/newjersey you can access a list, constantly updated, of the most trendy restaurants in town. Despite being very close to New York and nightlife ending relatively early, Newark offers many places where you can have a drink and listen to music. Krug's Tavern and Maize (www.maizerestaurant.com) have calm and family environments where it is also possible to have American specialties such as burgers, fries and the famous onion rings. The Priory is the right place for jazz lovers, while Maxwell's (www.maxwellsnj.com) was considered by New York Magazine as "the best rock club in New York, despite being in New Jersey". For the nightlife guide, you should also consider Arena Bar (www.arenanj.com), open until 3am, Mix 27 or Misavi's (www.misavi.com), one of the most modern bars in town.
