– about us –
Newark is a unique and historically rich city that we are honored to be a part of. We invite you to join us at Marcus B&P where Chef Marcus Samuelsson brings his passion for food and culture to the neighborhood we are so proud to call our home.
Named for the Swedish concept of BP or “back pocket,” this is a spot where you can meet your family, friends, or coworkers at the Bar (the “B”) or take home some delicious locally grown Provisions (the “P”) any night of the week.
