Next Time You're In Newark...

Accession Public Relations and restaurant, JT's Original Louisiana Barbeque, announced today their official partnership with the goal of bringing the spotlight back to the Newark, New Jersey restaurant scene.

Located in the up and coming Cultural Arts District of downtown Newark, JT's provides an uplifting experience with a level of sophistication and down home cooking that business locals and out-of-town visitors can't stop talking about.

Owner James Turner first opened the restaurant in Gig Harbor, Washington and with its great success in the North West decided to move to New Jersey with his family with one thought in mind, "My wife and I decided to give Newark some Louisiana-style food."

And they have done just that, building their new place near many Newark attractions which include the reputable New Jersey Performing Arts Center, the Prudential Center, and historic Newark Symphony Hall.

JT's restaurant offers an array of succulent barbecued entrees. Whether you are in the mood for ribs, chicken, or a shredded beef po'boy sandwich there is something for every barbeque lover at JT's .

Other options include crispy fried catfish that go great with the home-made side dishes that might just challenge mom's macaroni and cheese, baked beans, potato salad and more. JT's also has a sweet spot and offers homemade sweet potato pie and peach cobbler that you can indulge in by slice or by the pan.

In addition to great food, customers enjoy live music and regularly held special events at a place that's looking to do more than fill their bellies. Rooted in the Newark community and regular supporters of Newark's nonprofits and charities, JT's shares a sense of family, fun and Louisiana tradition that will keep you coming back for more.

How disappointing. I started going to JT's in Tacoma WA and told some friend's to meet there tonight for some of the best BBQ I've ever had. To my surprise they had closed up shop and left town. Took them a while but they had a nice little business going here and then all of a sudden Newark needs BBQ. What's up with that? What a way to treat your loyal customers. No notice, no nothing, just gone. Hope JTs is nicer to their Newark customers than they were to us.
