Newark Cherry Blossom food vendors - worth it?

  • 1

So the cherry blossom picnic is tomorrow, and my wife and I are going. The question is: is it better for us to drive from Union to Edgewater to get bento boxes or other nifty Japanese takeaway (unless someone knows of a better/more convenient place) and then to Newark? Or are the food vendors decent for some Japanese food? I'm not expecting handmade onigiri and broiled mackerel but we'd like to avoid $4 hot dogs if possible.

  1. You should be aware that the cherry blossoms are over and done with. They were in full bloom during the last week of March and I saw a post on April 6 saying there was little left to see. The picnic is still on and should be a lot of fun - just don't expect to see blossoms!
