Their Grand Opening is just days away but I just HAD to take a sneak peek at this new eatery, and was lucky enough to be able to participate in their soft opening! Newks Eatery, located in the Shoppes at Potomac Corner Center, will be officially swinging open their doors on July 1 in what will be its first footprint in Virginia.
Newk’s Eatery is a Mississippi-based chain that prioritizes pizza, sandwiches and salads. They serve up hearty portions of premium meats sliced in-house, hand-shredded cheeses and imported ingredients, scratch made sauces & dressings and fresh fruit & vegetables chopped in-house every day. While they take personal pride in everything they prepare-at Newk’s, they’re particularly fond of their Newcomb Family Recipes. When you see their logo on the menu, you know that item was born from the true love of cooking in their own home kitchens. Chicken salad (which I had and was quite delish). Tippah County caviar (a black-eyed pea salad). The Debra (a specialty chicken pesto pizza). These dishes have been shared and perfected over countless dinner parties, tailgates and inspired midnight snacks.
One of the unique things about this eatery is their Roundtable. It’s in the center of the eatery and it is loaded with freebies! You can add some zing to your chicken salad with imported jalapeno peppers. punch up that pizza with fresh roasted garlic, garnish your salad with housemade croutons, shredded Parmesean cheese, or whatever you’re craving! (My daughter LOVED the breadsticks and extra goodies she was able to add to her huge Ceasar Salad!)
To celebrate its grand opening, Newk’s Eatery will be holding a “community prep rally” 11 a.m.-1 p.m. July 18. Leading up to the event, people will be encouraged to nominate their favorite local charities or organizations for a chance to win a portion of the opening day proceeds through Newk’s Eatery’s #FeedWhatMatters social media contest.
