New York Times: Focused Food, Center Stage

Focused Food, Center Stage
Glowing review of Newark’s Theater Square Grill, which can be found in the NJPAC building downtown.

Come to think of it, it was a bit like Riverdance without the music: a vast crew of servers choreographing three courses — fixed price, $50 — with no stumbles or unseemly haste.

A meal at Theater Square does entail sacrifices, of course. Intimacy, for one: the dining room, designed by Barton Myers, the arts center’s lead architect, is the size of a small airplane hangar. Still, it remains one of the handsomest restaurants in the state — a soaring, airy two-story space, its formal geometry and muted browns, blacks and whites lightened by wall-sized windows that look out on the arts center’s graceful plaza and the Newark skyline.
