Tried the new Martini 494- an outpost of another restaurant in NJ. I have to say that aside from specialized Ironbound cuisine, this is the best meal that I have had in Newark. If it was in Manhattan, it would be just another place, but in Newark, it is golden. Had a burger- a little more rare than the medium rare I ordered ( but they erred in the right direction). Good fries. Great service. Saw other lunch items come out- mostly sandwiches- which looked nice. An enormous hunk of chocolate cake at the next table.
Across the street from ! Wash Park. Finally, a reason to go out to lunch near my office.
