Once again enjoyed an excellent meal at the Spanish Tavern last week. The food and service were exceptional. This is my #1 stop for dining when in Newark!

Unequivocally the best food in the City. I have never been disappointed!!! The lunch menu is very fairly priced, the wine selection is enormous and the complimentary soup provided at lunch is always a winner. Can't say enough good things about this establishment.
