Ongoing Construction To Re-Design Newark's Military Park

An award winning chef has been tapped to run the new restaurant in the newly renovated Military Park in Newark.

The restaurant will be overseen by Chris Siverson, executive chef and owner of the Maritime Parc Restaurant in Jersey City’s Liberty State Park. The menu will feature burgers and fries as well as wine and beer. Siversen says even as a classically-trained French chef, at the end of the night it’s all about burgers and fries for him.

“It’s going to be a combination between sort of take out fast food and restaurant service where you can come in and spend a couple of hours if you want to hang  and have some drinks and order food and it’ll be a really great atmosphere.”

The new restaurant will be housed in an 1,800 square foot building that will also encompass outdoor seating in the re-designed park. It is set to open by next spring.
