Newark is one of Delaware’s most bustling counties, packed with history and charm. Founded by Scots-Irish and Welsh settlers in 1694, the city now has both college-town charm and commercial innovation, which spills over into an innovative foodie scene. Here are must-try 10 dining spots in Newark.
Since 1851 The Deer Park Tavern has been a landmark in Newark, still attracting visitors from all over the world thanks to its status on the National Register of Historic Places. The site was previously occupied, from 1747, by the St. Patrick’s Inn, in which George Washington and Edgar Allen Poe are reputed to have stayed. The original log cabin structure burned down and was replaced by the current brick building, which went on to become one of the finest hotels on the East Coast. Like the atmosphere, the menus are lively, with classic burgers and a range of salads, alongside truffle fries, Eastern Shore pretzels, and crab cake sandwiches. Of an evening the Tavern is home to university students and locals, all enjoying some of the best music, nachos, and drinks offers in Newark.
