I have tried Adega's and Sabor Unido. I know there's Iberia, as well.

What are some place you would recommend to eat in the Ironbound?

I read that Seabra's Marisqueria was the "most authentic" of the down-neck Portuguese restaurants, so we went there a couple of months ago. Their chicken soup had not been strained, and it contained an incredible number of bones that had to be picked out of one's mouth.

I was willing to write that off to a forgotten step in the preparation until I arrived home and shortly wound-up with an hours-long bout of violent diarrhea. Because my dining partner ate all of the same things that I did--except for my grilled tuna steak entree--and because he did not become sick, I have to conclude that the tuna steak was contaminated with... God only knows what.

Knowing where to go also involves knowing where NOT to go. I will NEVER return to Seabra's Marisqueria, and you might also want to avoid that place.

My favorite has always been Fornos on Ferry St..

That is near the train station.

Fornos is... okay.
I much prefer Casa Vasca, on Elm Street.
And, after my very negative experience at Seabra's Marisqueria, I will return to Casa Vasca!

Several years ago, while I was dining at Casa Vasca, Brian Thompson--from NBC News--was dining at an adjoining table with a very attractive young blond. Somehow, I don't think that she was his daughter.

I second this one. Fornos is very good.

I also recommend Tony Da Caneca. Not as well-known as Fornos, but long-established and with a loyal following.

Tony Da Caneca Restaurant
