‘Marcus B&P’ from Marcus Samuelsson Imminent in Newark

Late last year, celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson announced that he would be opening a new restaurant in Newark, and some new details have emerged as to what exactly might be in the works with the project.

Samuelsson, a Sweden-born James Beard winner who has published several cookbooks and appeared on programs like Bravo’s Top Chef and Food Network’s Chopped, is partnering with Ron Moelis of L+M Development for the Newark venture. The two became business partners at Harlem’s acclaimed eatery Red Rooster back in 2013 and will be opening their Brick City restaurant in 2,250-square-feet of space in the Hahne & Co. building.

It’s been a busy time for Samuelsson and his restaurants, as he just opened a London outpost of Red Rooster back in May and signed on last month to open another unnamed restaurant in a soon-to-open luxury building in Brooklyn called The Greenpoint. As far as the Newark spot, Eater reports that Samuelsson hopes to open the restaurant’s doors later this year.
