(Clark, N.J. – July 29, 2015) – Whole Foods Market Clark, opening on Friday, Aug. 7, is excited to announce the opening of Clark Bar, the store’s full-scale restaurant. Clark Bar’s fast-casual style will serve as an ideal place for area residents and families to grab a refreshing cocktail, beer or glass of wine in addition to a delicious quick lunch or casual dinner.

Clark Bar’s menu will offer fresh seasonal salads and flatbreads, along with unique variations of burgers ground in-house daily and fresh cut fries. Customers will find fresh and locally sourced ingredients such as seasonal Jersey Fresh produce, Ewe’s blue cheese, Lioni Ricotta, black garlic from Obis One, and Radicle Farms spinach. In line with Whole Foods Market’s commitment to providing shoppers with the finest, premium quality goods, all of the food featured on the Clark Bar menu meets Whole Foods Market’s strict quality standards.   

In addition to the food offerings, Clark Bar will also be the exclusive location where beer enthusiasts can find Markt Saison from New Jersey’s own Kane Brewing. The new brew is an unfiltered, deep golden colored Saison at 5.8% ABV and is made with a blend of locally sourced New Jersey yeast. The brew’s unique flavor features citrus notes on the nose with slight dark cherry and plum in the background. It is balanced with hints of toasted bread, and a bright clean, dry finish. The restaurant’s twelve beer taps will rotate an assortment of local and domestic seasonal and year-round craft brews. For the month of August, Clark Bar will run a special on all craft beers on tap at $5 (originally priced at $6).

For those seeking a unique cocktail, Clark Bar will also be showcasing a selection of six delicious signature concoctions made with small batch spirits and bitters developed by Whole Foods Market’s in-house experts. The cocktail menu is a first for Whole Foods Market stores in the tri-state area. Additionally, Clark Bar will also boast a selection of exclusive wines from around the world, including local options like Chardonnay from Alba Vineyards in Milford, NJ and Red Blend Tony’s from Anthony Road in New York.

The restaurant will also feature a children’s menu with family favorites such as mac & cheese and mini burgers. In addition to the variety of meal options, the bar will incorporate house-made desserts including an homage to the classic candy bar that shares its name, the Clark Bar Bundt – a decadent mini chocolate Bundt cake with a crispy peanut butter brittle, served and topped with chocolate ganache. Clark Bar will also have an onsite photo booth that links up to guests’ personal social media accounts so you and yours can capture all the fun.
