Wok to Walk Planned for Downtown Newark

Newark, New Jersey: A location of an international chain of restaurants serving Asian cuisine is reportedly opening in Newark.

A Wok to Walk location is planned for the Prudential Shoppes on Broad development at 679-705 Broad Street, between Cedar Street and Prudential Drive, in Downtown Newark. According to a real estate listing from Jones Lang LaSalle, the restaurant is slated to open in Building B of the development, between the Nike Factory Store and Blaze Pizza. 

Originally, documents from CBRE showed that a French Fry Heaven franchise was at lease with the company to open in the space, but plans for the location were never realized. 

Wok to Walk is based in the Netherlands, and has locations in 15 countries. All of the company's three American locations are in Manhattan. Customers can choose a base like egg noodles or white rice, toppings like smoked turkey and pineapple, and a sauce.

The Shoppes on Broad complex opened across from Military Park in 2015 as part of Prudential Financial's new office complex. Qdoba Mexican Eats, Starbucks Coffee, Halsey Cleaners, Halsey Newsstand, Ron Tomson, and Bright Horizons have all opened in the development, and The Halal Guys, Grabbagreen, and European Wax Center are coming soon. Additional space is still available for lease.
