In the News: NYT Reviews Talde, Extended Hours for Union Republic



**The NYT visits Talde Jersey City calling it a “hip and happening place” despite offering a “mix of hit-or-miss dishes and spotty service.” Standout dishes they recommend include the “perfectly crunchy” Korean-style fried chicken, the 2-lb. branzino baked in banana leaves, with dried red chilies, mustard seeds, and a tomato turmeric jam, and the kale salad, which serves the leafy green fried, raw, and grilled. —NYT
