Better Bites Newark announces its closure

places_cardHealth food restaurant Better Bites, which was located at 1186 Raymond Boulevard near the corner of Broad Street, announced that it will shut its doors for good via signs in its window.

Better Bites’ health-conscious menu included wraps (wheat only), quinoa, salads, hummus, soups, smoothies and (relatively) guilt-free desserts. The takeout restaurant catered to a mostly corporate crowd downtown: they kept breakfast and lunch hours from Monday through Friday, and wrapped up by 4 p.m.
