NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Chef Marcus Samuelsson launched a new restaurant in downtown Newark, New Jersey, on Friday, called Marcus B&P.B&P stands for "bar and provisions" but also draws on the Swedish concept of "back pocket," suggesting an informal, friendly spot.The eclectic menu reflects African-American culture as well as Newark's Portuguese Ironbound neighborhood and Samuelsson's ethnic background — born in Ethiopia, raised in Sweden. Menu items include corn bread, fried chicken, pizza, charred octopus and dorowat rigatoni. B&P also features locally made honey.Samuelsson also owns two popular restaurants in Harlem, Red Rooster and Streetbird Rotisserie.
