ABOUT

“Eleven Clinton – Smothered Blues was established with the vision to resurrect a true jazz supper club in the heart of downtown Newark. Eleven Clinton boasts a farm-to- table menu featuring home-style dishes with a Cajun flair, paired with exceptional service and “smothered” with live jazz performances.

Executive Chef Dawn Tyson, culinary genius and published author, created a menu that combines flavors of southern-style comfort food with authentic Caribbean spices and tastes, prepared in a scratch kitchen with organic farm-to-table ingredients.

The menu takes you from traditional fare to unexpected yet familiar experiences: cajun-spiced catfish topped with pico de gallo and drizzled with chipotle mayo creates the boldest and and most savory cajun catfish tacos available anywhere. The baby back ribs are dry rubbed and slow cooked to achieve a tender, and smokey BBQ experience.

Live jazz performances dress the windowed-stage every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Guests inside give ears to the sweet jazz of some of Newark’s top bands while passing onlookers are teased through the front window by the enticing melodies”
— Charles Hunter
