Newark Star Ledger: Tempting bite-size delicacies at Mompou. The Newark Star Ledger positively reviewed Mompou, the tapas & wine bar up on Ferry street in the Ironbound. I agree with them — my wife and I were there back in March, after they’d been open for about eight months, and had a great time.
The exposed brick and copper ceiling makes this restaurant look as though it was plucked from Chelsea or Tribeca. Mompou has prime real estate two blocks from Penn Station and, during the summer, Mompou opens its doors out to the sidewalk so patrons can enjoy the culture of nearby Iberia.

Mompou is a tapas and wine bar in Newark’s historic Ironbound district. Its distinctive atmosphere and superior Spanish cuisine make the eight-month-old storefront a standout.
The cosmopolitan spot is named for the Catalan composer Federico Mompou (1893-1987). French doors and amber-glass windows line the fa cade of the dining room that oc cupies the ground-floor of a renovated circa 1900 brick building. Exposed brick walls, wood and a suspended copper ceiling are awash in warm lighting. The room seats 55 at circular tables and a bar lit by a striking metal fixture of dangling incandescent light bulbs. A rear patio is ready for summer dining. A lower level is reserved for private parties.
