Looking for restaurant in Elizabeth, Newark area
Friends are visiting the area and staying at a hotel near Newark Airport. They will have already spent 3 days in NYC. I'm looking for a nice restaurant where we can have a relaxed dinner this Friday night. Rutt's Hut is very NJ but probably a little too casual. Any cuisine except Chinese or Thai would be appreciated.
The restaurant doesn't have to be right in Newark. I'm willling to drive w/in 10-15 miles of the airport. It can't be too far because my friends need to leave Sat. morning for Chicago.

For Portuguese and Spanish...
For old school rustic Italian....

I like Seabra's Marisqueira in Newark for Portuguese seafood. For a party of four, I'd sit in the bar area at one of the tables up front--you might call ahead to reserve one. Everything I've had there is very good, from the cockles to the sole with lemon, potatoes, and vegetables.
