Field Trip: Adega Grill

An Upscale Take on Spanish and Portuguese Dishes

Name: Adega Grill

Vibe: Upscale-ish

Address: 130 Ferry Street Newark, NJ (1.2 miles from The Kislak Building)


Adega Grill is a Newark gem that serves fine Portuguese and Spanish cuisine (think lots of seafood!). The grill has old-world vibes, with grapevines adorning the walls, wrought iron gates and sconces, and candlelit tables filling the cellar. When going for dinner, start with the simple but amazing Camarao a Guiho (shrimp sauteed with garlic and olive oil); next, we recommend either of their seafood paellas, both made with saffron rice and fresh shellfish.
