New Japanese Restaurant ‘Kinjo’ Open in Newark

Written By Diana Cooper – November 20, 2023

A new Japanese restaurant has opened in Newark — and it’s coming from the same owner of three other well-known restaurants, including Cellar 335 and Madame in Jersey City. Kinjo is a new Japanese-inspired restaurant and the most recent addition to the dining scene in downtown Newark. Located at 155 Washington Avenue in Newark, the new business has a straight-forward menu with Japanese items loved by many.

The Montclair Girl spoke with Jamie Knott, chef and owner of Kinjo, about what’s to come back in June. “First of all, Kinjo means ‘neighborhood’ in Japanese and basically, we wanted to be approachable to students but kind of change up the dining scene in Newark as well,” he shared.
