Last month, Alan Burkhard, owner of Newark mainstay Klondike Kate’s for 12 years, sold the restaurant to Gianmarco and Gilda Martuscelli. The couple also owns Chesapeake Inn in Chesapeake City, Md., and La Casa Pasta in Newark. The history of Kate’s traces back almost 300 years: it was a jail, a pool hall, a movie theater, skating rink and a gas station. The Martuscellis will add more pasta dishes and seafood to the menu. The family has owned La Casa Pasta since 1978, and the couple has run the Chesapeake Inn for 20 years.
