NEWARK - Hundreds of Newark residents lined up this morning for the grand opening of Joe's Crab Shack at 860 Broad St.

The new establishment, located in a newly opened Marriott Hotel, is the latest in a number of chains opening up in the downtown area surrounding the Prudential Center.

Dale Broach, VP of operations for Joe's Crab Shack, says the opening brought with it about 175 jobs, most of which are being filled locally.
