Newark—Within Walking Distance of Penn Station

JoanN | Jul 23, 2011 09:11 AM

Five of us, three adults and two teenage boys, will be going to the All-Star game at Red Bull Arena next Wednesday. We’re looking for a moderately-priced place to eat that’s within walking distance of Penn Station, Newark. Thinking Newark only because I don't know if there's anything Chow-worthy near the arena. Would certainly consider Harrison instead.

Problem is, since two of the party will be leaving for Spain and Portugal a few days later, we’re really not interested in either Spanish or Portuguese food. One of the teenage boys has his heart set on BBQ, which would be just fine with the adults, as long as it’s good BBQ.

A search of the boards came up with Pic-Nic, but that’s Portuguese, isn’t it? And it doesn’t look as though is would satisfy the teenager who wants ribs. Is it walkable from Penn Station? Modestly priced?

Fernandez Steak House, just reopened after the fire, looks as though it’s not within walking distance.

Can’t find much info on Stephanie’s BBQ. Is it just chicken? Do they have ribs? Are the ribs any good? Is it within walking distance?

Any other suggestions for me?
