I'm not confused. I get sp2sx's point.

Though I dont think adding tv's turns a bar into a frat house

Sounds like a lot of lame people here.

Dont like going to bars with tvs or drinking 3 drinks in an hr?

Do yourselves a favor and stay home bc no one wants you around them.

Re: Columbus Drive between Jersey Ave and Barrow. Is it safe for a single woman to live there?

Questions like this come up often and I think it depends on what you consider safe.

This is one of the older blocks that have been refurbrished in the recent years. There tends to be some of the old timers that havent been pushed out of the neighborhood who like to hang out on the stoop and enjoy a couple of beverages in the summertime.

I have a female friend that lives at one of those units and although she does gets annoyed with them, she has never felt unsafe.

I received a reaponse from the Path. They are not providing shuttle service but will be adding additional service to the jsq 33rd street line and cross honoring riders onto the exchange place, newport and hoboken light rail stations.

All you have to do is show your metro or smartlink card.

I have a lot of friends who live in brooklyn who find themselves stranded in their neighborhood because the L or F is not running on the wknds for repairs. Granted they have the option to take cabs but that never happens with the Path.

Re: Left Bank Burger Bar

For me at least, just about any burger I had in jc was better (park and 6th, lighthorse, five guys, skinners)

I hate to criticise this place but if you call yourself a burger bar, dont half ass it! Season the patty at the very least

I went for lunch last week. The décor, the service, the location, all great. Pricing I thought was very reasonable as well. But if you’re going to call yourself a burger bar, you have to at the very least have good tasting burgers. I am almost certain they get patties premade from whatever butcher (pat lafrieda?) and throw them on the cooker (I don’t think they use open fire?). You can see the imprints of the machine that mass assembled the patties and no I am not getting them confused with grill marks. It is certainly lacking seasoning and my medium was not cooked medium. This is the center of your business, you have to at least get that right. I definitely had better burgers in the area and I really hope they can get it together. I will definitely try them again in a few weeks.

It is an insult to compare 30 acres to marco and pepe.

I think M&P is good but they are two entirely different restaurants.

30 acres is doing well but it’s currently riding the hype train so you have many new customers coming in weekly. I just hope they can keep a loyal clientele and they stay in business for years to come. In order for them to do that, I would think they would need to lower their prices but hey, I could be wrong! Let’s be honest, we live in JC for the value. This is not Tribecca.

I think TGI Fridays, Olive Garden and Red Lobster has some of the worst food known to man but go to time sq on the weekends and it’s packed. Guys American Bar and Kitchen, I’ve tried it out of curiosity. It’s sht. But people wait in lines to go there so I’m obviously wrong.

I’m not arguing that 30 Acres can charge whatever they want, they obviously do. But you can’t say that its unfair for me to call it overpriced compared to other restaurants until you have looked into their books and see what their overhead is and compare it to other restaurants in the city.

Nyrgravey - i like you, only bc im a rangers fan and graves was a hero of mine growing up. But please, teach me something about microeconomics.

For the record I love 30acres. I like what they are doing, they help put jersey city on the map. I also love everyone on jclist, but most of your are dumb

No, mendezia. This person replied to every response which is why I think THEY are taking personal offense. I prefaced my msg with the fact that its my opinion that the restaurant is overpriced but according to who elsecoulditbe, I’m not allowed to do that.

The restaurant is in high demand so I am defeating my own points as to why I personally think they are overpriced? That’s not even a good defense. I’m entitled to my own opinion.

I think all steakhouses are overpriced. They are just taking a slab of meat and grilling it. Unless they are dry aging the steaks in-house, I think a steak is the most overpriced meal you can get in the city. But peter lugar’s is packed on Friday nights so I am wrong?

WhoelsecouldIbe - are you some kind of an idiot? They can charge whatever they want because demand is high so I cant call it overpriced?

I think there are a lot of restaurants that are overpriced in the city but I cant call them that bc they are busy?

Is kevin pemoulie your brother or is there some other reason why you are taking personal offense to these comments?

I have to disagree with the majority here. I think, and again this is my opinion, that 30 acres is a bit overpriced. The reason why I say that is if you compare it to restaurants with the same quality of food in NYC, they charge about the same if not a little more and they don’t have the same level of service or ambiance (ex. piora, perla, khe-yo). They certainly do not pay the same amount of rent either so why do they charge so much?

Some will say, “they source local ingredients,” but let’s be honest, most (good) places do that these days. The reason why they stay in business is because people in our area prefer to stay local because a) it’s cold out b) people don’t always want to travel to the city for a good meal c) we like to support the businesses that are here d) they prefer to hang out and get drinks somewhere close to home or e) there are limited options.

I would like to go to 30 acres more often but I feel as though it’s worth it to try new places in the city for the same price. Otherwise, I would find myself being a regular there.

Food at the end of the day is subjective. And everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

It’s hard to compare taqueria with orale. They are two completely different restaurants and if one prefers casual dining authentic Mexican food, they may enjoy taqueria and if someone enjoys trendy atmospheres and average at best but nicely plated food and a tequila bar, they may enjoy orale. But if we’re just comparing the food, taqueria is hands down better and I think if you ask 10 chefs their opinion, 8/10 would agree.

Taqueria is the closest thing to authentic Mexican tacos you can get anywhere in this area and I would argue NYC as well. Orale is the closest thing you can get to a dos caminos/rosa mexicano in NJ. Great atmosphere, fantastic tequila bar. Both are great additions to the area and we should argue less about what is better and be thankful that we have these options.

If you can replicate the pizza made at razza's at home with a conventional oven, I applaud you and will give you everything I own.

Mark - You may just not have a palate for quality food bc you are used to foods high in sodium an sugar as are most people in this country.

Razza's pizzas are very similar to the way pizza is made in italy. Even though this is all subjective, to say their pizzas aren't good is false.

Re: What does Downtown Jersey City need in a new restaurant?

I agree with the previous posts. A 24 diner would do really well here along with a korean bbq restaurant.

However, the places that seem to be the most successful in similar areas are the places with good drinks and food at a reasonable price. A spitzer's from the LES or a five leaves in Greenpoint are two examples that would thrive in a place like JC. no frills type of place with good beers on tap, quality food at a decent price.

Re: Advice for an investor moving into Jersey City

From your description, it sounds like you're looking for something in Journal Square. The heights you would need a car or take the light rail/path or bus/path into the city. I dont think there are many single family homes downtown and if so, they would be pricey. You would need a car in greensville and would be far from the path.

The path in JS is in a great area for commuters but the surrounding area gets a little shady esp at night but nothing like Bed Stuy. Anything outside of these areas you would be too far from public transportation.
