Harlem’s Marcus Samuelsson Launching in Newark

October 30, 2017

NY Post reports that celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson, who helped revitalize Harlem with the opening of Red Rooster in 2010, is now making a bet on the renaissance that’s happening in Newark.

In mid-November, Samuelsson will launch a new restaurant in downtown Newark, NJ called Marcus B & P. The B stands for bar and the P stands for provisions, says Samuelsson, who reveals exclusive details about his latest project in an interview with Side Dish.

“We are addressing Newark’s current need and preparing for what is coming,” he said.

The farm-to-table menu will be inspired by Newark’s rich history — from African-American southern cooking to Italian fare and the Portuguese cuisine found in the city’s unique Ironbound district.

We will mirror the culture and history here, that is similar to Harlem, and we have a chance to be more ‘farm to table’ here than we can be in Manhattan…

“We will mirror the culture and history here, that is similar to Harlem, and we have a chance to be more ‘farm to table’ here than we can be in Manhattan,” Samuelsson says. “We are 15 minutes away from the source of our incredible hazelnuts and honey, for example.”

The restaurant is also made out of recycled goods, from the wood to the tiles, Samuelsson said.

The 3,000-square-foot space will open on the ground floor of a residential condo at 56 Halsey St., the site of the former Hahne & Co. factory. It will feature 65 seats inside, 30 seats in an atrium, 25 seats in the outdoor summer patio — and a balcony level for private events.

The space will also feature a bar with killer craft cocktails.
