Novelty Burger Opens Next Week in Newark

Newark, New Jersey: Newark's newest hamburger restaurant is about to open. 

According to a manager, Novelty Burger and Bar, located within the RockPlaza Lofts development at 214 Market Street, between Broad and Mulberry Streets, will open next week. Novelty Burger and Bar is attached to the Mercato Tomato Pie pizzeria, and customers will be able to walk inside from one restaurant to the other. The restaurant, which has been preparing to open for over a year, is housed within the Union National Bank building. The space had been vacant for over a decade.

The restaurant will also serve shakes, beverages, hot dogs, and other items. It is designed to look like a retro diner.

Another burger restaurant in Downtown, Burg at Military Park, opened earlier this fall.
