I could be wrong but it seems like the guy is trying to bring in a partner or sell the place (the former stadium sports bar that is).


I think it was a girl who owned it...actually she was running it but that it was actually her grandmothers place. It's got a nice set up inside, I don't see why a bar can't work there, especially adding the Nets in this year.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Anybody have any idea when that John's Pizzeria is opening? Last I heard was this fall but I haven't seen or heard anything in ages. That place pre-game will be bad news for my waistline.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen construction or anything...guess I have to poke around.

I actually noticed they had the obligatory notice of moving a liquor license there up the other day. I think it's pretty cool to see the galaries and new restaurants retaking broad and market in a rather organic fashion.

Went to the upstairs section of city cafe, because we were running late due to traffic. Nothing has changed, the place still is really bad. I asked the guy what beers they had on draft....no idea what I meant. Then I asked what beers they had at all and he said anything I wanted, which turned out as long as I wanted Heineken, Corona, Bud, or Miller.

We also grabbed their dinner menu which is still filled with horrific spelling errors.

All wonderful options. Also, the front listed you can get BBQ and Crabs at the City Cafe, delicious.

I seriously wouldn't have believed it had I not seen it. How is that place still there. I remember reading an article about the owners 4 or 5 years ago and it seem like no one is actually running the place.

I assume there must be some illicit activity going on there that's the real money maker. Also, the new upstairs portion was filled with extension cords, no way it was inspected and given the ok to open, which again suggests to me everything isn't above board.

Beer was fine and all, if we were running super late we still might grab a beer there. :lol: We're 2/2 on getting stories from going there.

I come a back way in via 78 and local roads and park in a green lot for quick entrance and exit, so if we're pressed for time we only have city cafe, arena lounge, and chateau du spain on our side of the arena now that Stadium bar closed. It's telling we've only been to City twice in 3 years. :lol:

We planned to hit up Port 44, to see what the food was like. Stopped in after the Season ticket BBQ and enjoyed our beer there and the place is pretty nice inside but we didn't have the time.

Well being local I am biased but I have like swinging through Port 44 due to having my mug there but I still have yet to do Bellos and that place apparently is a pretty good sports bar.

Brick City Bar and Grill on Edison is good. Francesca's on McWhorter has amazing Italian food. Je's on the corner of William and Halsey has great soul food. Hobby's Deli on the corner of Halsey and Branford is a classic deli. Mike's Coffee Shop on the corner of Broad and William is good for a cheap slice of pizza.
Glocally Newark has a lot of reviews on places.

Mr. Devils Champs you are missing out on some great places although alot depends on how much time you have. If you go North of the arena downtown you should try out Nicks, Mix 27 and Killkennys all located right at halsey and central. If you go to the Ironbound there are literally hundreds of places to try, I would always recommend one trip to Fernandez steak house, Iberia, Boi Na Brasa, Adega, Fornos, Spain...hell I could go on for a while but you really should explore the Ironbound restaurant scene.

Hell's Kitchen has very good food at a great price. Plus it has plenty of Devils fans before games. I almost always go there when I have the time.

I've been meaning to try a lot of the other places mentioned, but I've only tried BCB&G, Scully's, Fernandes and a quick drink at the Spot and Stadium Cafe.

It depends on who they're playing and what time you get there. If you make reservations it's not a problem at all.

Home Opener wasn't nearly as packed as I've seen it before.

I had to drop off paperwork at city hall the other day and I actually saw a place called Kimora Lounge that looks like they have been trying to get opened for a while. Don't know if it will ever happen but it was cool to see. I also got a shot of the Uber Burger and they said they would be opened next week.
