Downtown isn’t the only Jersey City ward experiencing a boom in restaurants and boutique coffee shops. Just this week two new restaurants soft opened in Bergen Lafayette, joining an impressive array of new shops and restaurants that already includes Hooked JC, The Grind Coffee Shop, and newly opened Corgi Spirits.
If the swinging lounge chairs and an in-house coconut cart don’t catch your eye, dishes like Jerk Chicken Nachos and Piri-Piri Style Shrimp are bound to lure you in. Located at 339 Communipaw Avenue (in the former MAE space), Harry’s Daughter is currently in soft open mode.
The Oak on Pine
From the team behind Sam A.M, The Oak on Pine is currently running as an a la carte supper club open Tuesdays through Thursdays with seatings from 6pm to 9pm. Reservations are required, BYOB is encouraged, and the restaurant is in cash-only mode. Menu items include Shrimp & Grits, Crawfish Macaroni, Salted Honey Fried Chicken, and a vegetarian “Meat” Loaf.
