About Ironbound

With Portuguese and Italian flavors, Ironbound Restaurant offers an eclectic menu sure to intrigue the palate. With innovative twists on traditional dishes, this Newark Restaurant will transport you to the Old World.

Turn-of-the-century forges and foundries flourished luring workers from all across Europe. First Germans, Lithuanians, Italians, and Poles. Then in 1910 a larger wave of immigrants arrived from Portugal and Italy.


This wave would become a great influx in the 1940's creating a strong, close-knit, self-sustaining community. Come celebrate with us, the culinary heritage of Portugal and Italy and the cultural crossroads that is Ironbound.
