NJ Dining: Seabras Marisqueira

Seabra Marisqueira
87 Madison St, Newark, NJ
(973) 465-1250

I continue to be amazed by the diversity and quality of restaurants in Newark’s Ironbound. One of my favorite places is Seabra’s Marisqueira, a locals-type no-nonsense Portuguese seafood restaurant.

Storefront on Madison Street.

Marisqueira has a large U-shaped bar that’s very popular with single dining patrons.

Among the many things you can get at the bar are freshly steamed Dungeness crabs and Maine lobsters, all ready to eat.

Here one of the servers plates up a fresh seafood dish for a bar patron.

The simple seafood dishes are among the most popular here.

The kitchen is enclosed behind plexiglass where you can see the fish on display.

These collossal shrimps are huge, like the size of a baby’s foot.

These are some seriously packed lobster tanks, but they are replenished really quickly at this restaurant.

Shrimp Asopado, a hearty soup.

Garlic Shrimp. I almost always order this at Newark restaurants.

Pork with Clams and Potatoes.

Shrimp Mozambique, Giant head-on prawns in a garlic and paprika sauce. A triple order.

    You must really like your Portuguese food! I’m not from NJ, but I grew up on my family’s Portuguese food. If you go to a Portuguese restaurant, you leave happy. Bom apetite.
