Welcome to Market Kitchen & Bar, the dining destination in Newark, DE with a dual purpose - to provide a gastropub experience while using locally sourced product and fresh ingredients.
The gastropub aspect takes simple, staple dishes and elevates them through a more complex and culinary treatment. It's where the classic burger is relished with caramelized rosemary onions, pepper bacon, and local cow tipper cheese instead of the typical bacon and cheddar cheese. It's the burger made sexy. It's taking a simple grilled cheese sandwich and dressing it up with varieties of gourmet cheeses and a home-made tomato bacon jam. It takes the standard prime rib steak and fancies it with roasted cipollini onions and cabernet jam. It's always a twist and a step up.
Walk into Market Kitchen & Bar to get your favorite staples, and you'll see something unique to the area. Why? Because we source local products. Executive Chef Robert and Food & Beverage Director Keith have teamed up to conquer local farms and source fresh product. Beef from Reid Angus Farm in Frankford, DE. Chicken from Bell & Evans in Fredericks, PA. Cheese from Firefly Farms in Accident, MD. Fresh produce from farms in DE, NJ, PA, and MD. Ice cream from Woodside Creamery Farm in Newark, DE. Here at Market Kitchen & Bar, we emphasize fresh and creative cuisine. Fresh herbs, including thyme, rosemary, mint, basil, oregano, and much more are grown and harvested here in our very own courtyard and used in our dishes.
Let's talk beverages. Our favorite craft beer is brewed and spirits are distilled just 40 miles away in Milton, DE. Dogfish Head Brewery and Distillery is the finest in the area. In addition, our rotating exclusive local beers are being brewed and developed in DE, MD, PA, and NJ. Our fresh hand-crafted cocktails are just that - fresh and hand-crafted. Ingredients are local, including garnishes such as mint and basil, from our hotel's garden. Experience the liquid entertainment that happens right before your eyes when our mixologist crafts our signature cocktails, including the Ivy Fizz, made with local Dogfish Vodka, simple syrup, lime, garnished with fresh mint and the Blackberry-Rye Sour, made with local Diamond State rye whiskey, fresh squeezed lemon, simple syrup and fresh picked New Jersey blackberries.
