"This is an exciting new type of event for Newark," said Abbi Yeboah, of Abbi Creative. "I was moved by the creative environment of The Gateway Project where my entities are located and came up with The Art of…Series. This first event will focus on just some of the amazing culinary opportunities that the residents, employees and visitors of Newark have around them to partake."

The Art of Food will allow guests to sample restaurants they may not yet have encountered in the City of Newark. It will enable these Newark businesses to showcase new dishes, popular staples and highlight their catering capabilities. Not only is there great food to enjoy, the event also allows for great networking in an incredibly creative art space.

Some of the participating Newark restaurants include: Commerce Downtown Kitchen; Eat Me Up Cuisine by Chef Alexia Grant (raffling off a diner for two); Mama WaWa's Sweet Eat'n; Mercato Tomato Pie; SugarCoated Affairs; and Dinosaur Bar-b-que (giving away a $50 gift card). There will be a live band, a cash bar, as well as two engaging activities ‘Food Bingo’ and ‘Guess the Ingredient’.
