Replacing the former Theater Square Grill, NICO presents food that is fresh inspired, and offers free parking with validation (not in conjunction with any NJPAC performance).

It has been designed to come out of the kitchen quickly, allowing guests to make their curtain ~ provided they arrive 90 minutes prior to the start of a performance.   Note: Chef DePersio delivers a dining experience at NICO Kitchen + Bar akin to his other terrific restaurants.
