I'm not sure how "authentic" this place is for ramen. I had the pork ramen for lunch a few weeks ago and the pork was a few pieces of tenderloin.

Mine didn't come with the egg even though it said it would. Did you guys have to ask for the egg?


Did not have to ask for the egg, but there it was. The pork was either tenderloin or pork butt (probably seared, then slow cooked and pulled), but thought it was a nice spin on the traditional. Other than that, everything about it was delicious.

Stopped by here for lunch today to try the tonkatsu. It was excellent (and had the hard boiled egg). The man running the place was very nice. Served it in a typical ramen bowl with the spoon and chop sticks. Highly recommend ramen fans check this out for yourself. I'll be hitting this place up at least once a week. At $9, you can't beat it.

Stopped by the shop the other day to inquire about prices. Seems the posts on here are incorrect. $40 haircut with their barbers. $30 with an apprentice. $15 for cleanup (hairline/neckline).

Was just there. Great selection of spirits (real absinthe!). The guy working said they're happy to take requests for beer or spirits to stock. Dig it.

Noticed this as well over the weekend. For anyone familiar with The Blind Barber (http://blindbarber.com/) in the East Village, these guys are running with the same concept: classic barbershop, straight razored shave, and cocktail while you sit. As a customer of The Blind Barber (cuts are $40 with complimentary drink), I'm curious to see how Virile is being that it's a block commute as opposed to getting to the East Vill. If the commenter who said these guys charge $50 is correct, that's a bit of a bummer. Something else I'd like to know is what they charge for trims/clean-ups/shape-ups.

i live on Montgomery, between Marin and Grove, and PSEG were checking if the gas was on my building last night.

I asked them and he said, the gas will probably be back on today, but he didn't seem very convincing.



I was told the same. Also, PSEG emailed me this little bit "Once that is complete, PSE&G can begin the process of restoring gas to the affected locations, but that will require PSE&G entering each home or business to turn on the gas service." If that's the case, this is sure to take awhile.

Wrong. The $40 total didn't include tip and the 3yr old ate everything we did. Good job, good effort, guy.

The least expensive pizza (no cheese) is $14 x 2 = $28
Beet salad $10 = $38
Meetballs $9 = $47

Were they running a special?

I like Razza, and as Tommy said it's not bad if you consider it a nice restaurant instead of a pizza place, but I can't see a family of 3 getting out of there for $40 (even if you just drink water) unless someone is willing to go home hungry or the 3rd person is 3.

Yes, there was a special. And yes, the third person was 3. Good guess. Dining at a restaurant with great service and atmosphere for that price is a great deal. But like the previous commenter stated, we don't view the place as a pizzeria, even though Paulus Hook Brick Oven, which is a hole in the wall, charges just as much, if not more for their pies (which are good, I must add).

Yeah my opinion is, it's really not all that pricey.

But if you look at Razza as a pizza joint, it's pricey.

If you look at Razza as a quality restaurant experience, with an interesting/beautiful/unique ambiance, with superior quality food, and excellent service (in my opinion it's all of these things), then the price seems just about right.

Don't forget, it's a big space on the main drag of an increasingly affluent neighborhood - the rent ain't that cheap in that spot.

What happened to the city maintaing sidewalk landscaping?
#11
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Anyone else notice the sidewalks haven't been maintained, landscaping-wise, in some time? I've seen some blocks with full on bushes growing out of the sidewalk. I happened to see some local volunteers taking care of this on Erie in front of their apartment building (that converted school) a week ago out of frustration that the city has let it go.

If you'd like to report this issue in your neighborhood, go here: http://www.cityofjerseycity.com/public_works.aspx?id=1430

Thanks. Seems this has flooded the gas lines downtown. Building manager told me the gas meters were filled with water in my building. This should be fun...

Gas shut off in DTJC due to flooded gas lines
#14

Not too shy to talk


Discovered this morning that there was no gas in my house. Called PSEG and they sent someone over at 8am. Apparently, water (from a water main break, it seems) flooding the gas lines so they shut off the gas. He said it affected everyone between Marin and Grove, but that range could increase depending on the calls they get.

First they have to fix it, then safety check every apartment in the affected area before restoring gas.

I posted about this recently. There's definitely been an increase in unstable, aggressive homeless folk and junkies/crackheads here lately.

Noticed the same thing. Currently on hold with them to a "high call volume." Will update if I hear from them. My expectations of that are about as high as the water pressure right now.

That's what I'm wondering. Shelters and possible treatment programs would certainly help.

Re: Increase in homeless and/or drug addicts in DTJC

I'd say an increase, yes. I've been here for 9 years and have definitely seen a jump over the last couple. It used to be a few people in front of A-1 or McDonald's asking for change. Now there's an assortment of characters scattered throughout the park, the residential side streets on on stoops, and just wandering around downtown. Now they're mobile and in some cases, aggressive.

When you've got a 3yr old playing at Van Vorst and a bunch of homeless folks drinking a few feet away, or passed out in the gazebo, or in the case of a few weeks ago, having to step over human feces, it's definitely an increase compared to a few years ago.

I can't speak on Jrnl Sq.

Increase in homeless and/or drug addicts in DTJC
#20
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I've searched the forums to see if this has been brought up, but came up empty.

I've noticed over the last year or two the increase in homeless and/or drug addicts has jumped. Whether it's that insane couple with the lady who lives in a shopping cart (and who defecated in front of McDonald's on Grove and Newark) or the schizo on Newark and Jersey, who gets aggressive with passersby, or all the homeless people sleeping all over Van Vorst, or the heavyweight junkie nodding off on stoops on Barrow, or the guy who asks for money to buy his epilepsy meds.

I'm hoping Fulop addresses this because with the increase in their presence, their stands an increase of public safety/health issues. I'd love to be able to express this to the new administration. I always recall when Giuliani was mayor, it was as if he bussed all the homeless folks off the streets. Once Bloomberg took over, they were released. I feel that way with the end of Healy's reign and hope Fulop is able to make more shelters, drug and mental treatment centers available to clean things up.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Open-Gym Basketball for Adults in Paulus Hook/Downtown/Newport/Hamilton Park?
#22
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I saw a thread on here last updated in 2009 regarding this subject. The commenters at the time mentioned contacting the JC Dept. of Rec, but when I called today, they said they were unaware of any open gyms in the city. The person I spoke to didn't seem to really comprehend the question nor care to look into it for me. Other commenters from that original thread mentioned Grace Church, Golden Door, JC Armory and Cordero, but calling those places got me nowhere.

Now that it's getting colder out, pickup games at Hamilton Park or the Boys & Girls Club outdoor courts are becoming more difficult. Does anyone know of any open gyms in the area that one could play basketball at? Whether it's pickup, organized games that allow newcomers, or even just for shoot-around.

Any information would be appreciated.

Have been there twice now and both times have been excellent. The wood-burning oven is the secret here, putting this place neck and neck with Paulus Hook Brick Oven as my favorite pizza in town. The quality here is far superior considering the ingredients being used. i.e. truffle oil, fennel, local veggies and meats.

The homemade sauce is just as delicious; used on some pizzas and their amazing meatballs.

Highly recommend the tartufi, margherita, mai pie, meatballs, bone marrow crostini, beet salad, farm salad, and the oven-charred bread with their homemade butter (worth paying for, though it would be nice if it were complimentary). Great wine. Haven't had the beer yet, but I'm familiar with the brands they carry.

The owners are always present and quite friendly, as is the staff and service. Music is at the perfect level, allowing for actual conversation without needing to yell.

Glad Bar Majestic closed down for this spot to take over.
