Interesting Options near the Prudential Center in Newark

angelhair Mar 25, 2011 09:10 AM

We'll be attending the Sweet Sixteen basketball games this weekend in Newark and would like to find someplace good to eat before the games. We'll be taking the PATH from Manhattan and won't have a car so it will need to be within walking distance of the train and the stadium. We're open to all possibilities but some great Portuguese would be awesome! Thanks.

      We go to 10-15 hockey games a year at the Prudential Center. Our favorite restaurant is Fornos of Spain - www.fornosrestaurant.com. Its a couple of blocks from the train station. Just make sure you are hungry!

        Might be too late, but Mompou is all of a block behind Penn Station on Ferry Street...I've enjoyed their food every time I've gone, and it's an easy/quick walk to the arena from there.
