Restaurant Week Returns to Downtown Newark

Score delectable lunch and dinner specials at over a dozen local eateries through Jan. 27.


With so many great restaurant options in downtown Newark, it’s hard to make it to all of them (especially when the streets are often overrun by hungry UD students). But luckily, there is a week in January where a number of restaurants offer amazing lunch and dinner specials all while many students are away for winter session!
