Alva Tavern, the contemporary American restaurant at the renowned Hotel Indigo in downtown Newark, offers casually elegant food with an atmosphere that radiates the friendliness and warmth of a classic tavern. In what was the hometown of Thomas Edison, Alva’s food and beverage program is inspired by his creativity and ingenuity. This project is the brainchild of restaurateur Andre Neyrey, of Blackwood Hospitality, and features Chef James Corona interpretation of new American cooking, alongside Juan Arboleda’s renowned bar program of handcrafted cocktails.

The accessible menu takes its inspiration from traditional bistro fare. In addition to a raw bar, appetizers include a variety of flatbreads and salads, while larger entrées feature pastas, fish and meats with an emphasis on market-fresh ingredients and modern interpretations of classic dishes, combining locally grown produce with international flavors and palates.

The bar at Alva, located in the center of the restaurant, features a thoughtfully curated collection of regionally-brewed craft beers, wines, as well as a wide range of small-batch spirits and liquors. The cocktail menu includes a selection of innovative cocktails highlighting fresh ingredients in addition to classic cocktails with a modern twist.

With its modern American food and bar menus, Alva's guests are invited to enjoy appetizing dining options, or to unwind with a tailored cocktail in this brilliantly stylish atmosphere designed by Blackwood Hospitality.
