3 Things Chef Chris Siversen Wants You To Know

New happenings at this Newark restaurant.

Chef/Owner Chris Siversen of Burg in Military Park, Newark located steps from NJPAC, the Prudential Center and Newark Penn Station, wants you to know about:

1. The Burg Garden
Now open for business…and pleasure! Along with the added outdoor space of 100 seats in the Burg Garden, there is a new menu of signature cocktails paying homage to New Jersey’s biggest city. Grab a picnic table or Adirondack chair in the shade and take in the scene while sipping a New Ark (tequila, triple sec, lychee juice, lime juice, coconut water), The Third Ward (vodka, ginger juice, lime juice, ginger beer, peach bitters) or a Brick City (bourbon, pumpkin juice, club soda, orange bitters). Or choose one of the handcrafted brews or wines available on tap. Burg uses all-natural juice mixers by American Juice Company of Queens, New York. The full menu is also available to order from the takeout window.

2. A Beefed Up Menu
Two updates to the Burg menu are The Basic ($6.50), a signature burger blend and bun and the Basic Combo, served with fries, for $8.50. It is the same size burger as the Classic, just without the toppings. Non-beef eaters, also have plenty to choose from including a rotation of lamb, tuna and chicken burgers, as well a veggie burger topped with curry mayo, apple, lettuce, tomato and crispy onions.

3. Carousel Parties in the Park
Located directly across from Burg, there are two ping-pong tables and a 16-horse carousel depicting an actual horse from Newark’s 350-year history. Burg is also offering special packages for birthday parties and other carousel-side celebrations.
