Award-winning fast casual restaurant now open in Town Center Promenade
Newk’s Eatery, with its culinary-driven menu, open kitchens and blue-ribbon ingredients, opened its fifth Jacksonville restaurant today in the newly constructed Town Center Promenade at I-295 and Town Center Parkway.
Newk’s menu includes grilled and toasted sandwiches, handcrafted pizzas, grilled and tossed salads, kettle-batch soups and freshly brewed iced tea. Nothing at Newk’s is pre-chopped, pre-sliced, pre-packaged, pre-baked or microwaved. Instead, items are hand-prepared in open kitchens with quality ingredients such as petite tenderloin steak, Atlantic salmon, all-white meat chicken breast, sushi-grade Ahi tuna and Rainforest Alliance Certified teas. Sauces and dressings are all scratch-made in restaurants each day.
Newk’s servers deliver meals to guests in the spacious dining rooms centered on The Roundtable, a complimentary condiment table inspired by a trip Newk’s co-founder and CEO Chris Newcomb took to Italy. The table is kept stocked with gourmet extras including house-roasted garlic in Italian extra-virgin olive oil, shredded Parmesan cheese, capers and imported pepperoncini, Torinesi-style breadsticks, house-made croutons and guest-favorite bread-and-butter pickles.
“Jacksonville’s growing population appreciates a premium dining experience – and we apprecciate the city’s love of Newk’s,” said Newcomb. “Our new location in a popular shopping destination for locals and tourists alike allows us to introduce our brand to a much broader audience as we grow in North Florida, with additional restaurants planned for Gainesville and Tallahassee.”
The 4,200-square-foot restaurant will offer indoor dining for 138 guests and patio seating for 40 more. For guests in a hurry, the restaurant also features a Grab-N-Go cooler section filled with Newk’s’ most popular fresh-made sandwiches, salads, soups, desserts and beverages.
