Looking forward to trying Ahris. Its always great to have a new addition to the neighborhood.

Kraverie and Bon Chon are both great spots and each has it's own style. I don't think they can really be compared... Be cool to competitors and new neighbors.

Good Luck!





Thank you for bumping this up to the top! Totally reminds us why we decided to take the plunge in the first place.
See you soon!

Hey all! It's been quite a while since I logged on here. I forgot how entertaining it is!
It took a while, but we are open.
Here's a summary of what we are:
Your neighborhood authentic Korean food spot, for takeout and dining in.
Delivery will be starting the 1st week of May, using the jersey city based fastboydelivery.
And, bring your own beer or wine. Kalbi and kim chi go particularly well with a frosty beer.

So check out our website for more info, or tweet us with any questions.
Hope to see you soon!

Stopped by here the day of the 'blizzard', just to check it out. The interior is awesomely decorated! People seemed to be enjoying their food, and it was warm and cozy. Will be back to try out the food.

The construction permit situation has caused a delay. No one is more anxious to get started than we are.

They are not opening Dec 1. Because of red tape they might not open until spring.

I am really bummed especially since i donated through kickstarter...........was so looking forward to this place.


Sorry to really bum you out! We'll see what we can do when we are open to help cheer you up! No one is more bummed than we are.

You're right, they were there as well! I didn't have a chance to have their food, but I heard it was very good.

They are still working on the restaurant just not happening as fast as they wanted because of permit issues. They will be at Project Market 12/6 and 12/7 in city hall plaza. Come and get a preview of the food to come at the restaurant.


Thanks all for coming out to JC Project Market. We had a blast, the turnout was awesome, and our food was well received. We are really anxious to get started, but it is out of our hands at this point. Although we entered 'obtaining permits' in the 'Project hurdles' section of our Kickstarter, we were hoping to be the exception to the 'construction permit rule'; alas, this is not the case.

I will check and update this thread with any significant updates; thanks for your patience!

I would suggest getting at least 3 quotes and proposals. If in need, I know a great interior designer that has done multiple commercial and residential spaces in Jersey City, all for a verrry reasonable price (relatively).

If you have trouble coming up with your 3rd proposal, just PM me and I will shoot you the contact information.

No hijack, Webbie has declared this the "fishing" thread though he declines to change the linkbait title. As for getting started, at least as far as the pier it's real easy. Assuming your gear is heavy enough for this game, get bunker (large baitfish) sinkers and large (7-0 to 10-0) hooks at tackle store, and go to the pier and fling big chunks of bunker out there. After that it's largely time and luck. Better yet, before doing anything go chat up the guys fishing, soaking bait is pretty boring and most are happy to tell you what they know.


Thanks for the info, I went to Moe's yesterday and picked his brain. He told me basically what you told me, but that the bigger 15-20 pound stripers may not be out for a week or two.
We scoped out the area yesterday, there seem to be a lot of 'no fishing' signs along the waterfront until you get out to the tip of exchange place.

It was incredibly loud out there; a pretty lackluster car show had 50,000 watts of pop music on blast for an hour or two. Hopefully its not like that most weekends.

Ohhh, sorry you made the walk for a closed store.
Yes, 12/14 is when we anticipate opening! We have put in for permits and that is the longest part in the entire process.
We hope to be open on time, fingers crossed.
The Korean stews are even more delicious in the winter.

NY/NJ coastal waters are, actually, among the cleanest in the US. The Hudson River where we live is ocean water. It receives 6' of tide, 4x per day. It's a big washing machine. Unless it has rained heavily within 24 hours, the water in our area is really not very nasty at all.

Another point ... the fish that swim in NY Harbor off the coast of Jersey City are migratory by nature. For instance, one popular species to catch is the striped bass - a striped bass caught off Exchange Place could have been in Cape May a week ago, or Cape Cod last year. Another popular fishing species - the fluke (summer flounder) spends its winters in the depths of the ocean, way out, and comes inshore in the warmer months.

If you don't eat local fish in general, that's another story. But the fish caught here in our harbor are really no different than the ones caught in Montauk or the Jersey Shore. These fish don't stay in one place.

As of right now, we are including kimchi with the entrees and a small soup with the kimbab (hand rolls).

Ok Asif, included in the possibles is tteokbokki, our favorite street food in Seoul. I was just there this past fall; even in a city of 10 million people, it seemed there were enough tteokbokki stands to feed them all...

Actually, you do. It's not really a license though, they call it a registry, and it is free. Here's the link: http://www.nj.gov/dep/saltwaterregistry/

People under age 16 are exempt. Also, if you don't have it, you are probably not going to get in trouble, especially fishing from land, and especially in Jersey City which is a place that Game and Wildlife officials are not known to randomly roam around checking for that sort of thing.

The ship store across the Morris Canal at Liberty Landing Marina has some basic fishing stuff and there is also Moe's Tackle in JC Heights. For a bigger selection of stuff there is Capitol Bait and Tackle on 36th Street, really convenient to the 33rd St stop.


Thanks for the info, it has been so helpful.

The menu is looking good!

I am so happy to see Bibim Naeng Myun on the menu as it's one of my favorite dishes.

As a non-Korean who is used to ordering Korean food in Korean restaurants, could you be sure to put the transliterated name of each dish on your menu?

It's really helpful when ordering in a Korean restaurant, especially when you can't read Korean.

Simply seeing Kimbap, Sundubu Jjigae, Galbi, Bibimbap, etc. helps with ease in ordering as opposed to reading the English name and trying to determine the analogous Korean dish (which is what I am currently doing with your online menu).

In K-town, almost all restaurants feature the transliterated names of each dish, but it can be frustrating and more of a guessing game when the occasional restaurant doesn't do it (like they do at Pocha 32, for example).

Another question...

Will your menu be featuring Japchae?


The romanization is up now, so that should help.
As far as dishes not on the menu currently... if we find there is enough demand, we will surely incorporate them into our menu, seasonally, in the future.
Informal polls show that jap chae, nengmyun, mandu are reasonable suspects.

How often for five years? On every full moon? Thanks.


Good catch! Thanks, it was originally once a month for 2 people, forever, but Kickstarter does not allow lifetime rewards. It is now 2 people, once a week, for 5 years.

This Korean-American pizzaiola studied with Tony Gemignani and also studied in Naples for her craft, and got voted best independent pizzeria in the country by consensus, this year.

She has neapolitan, New York-Neapolitan, and New York pizza covered.

If the pizza at Stella's is not good (it's inconsistent, let's say, at best), its unlikely to have much to do with the ethnicity of the owner. Or have I lost my mind??

Thank you for your support! Even going to great lengths just to make accounts, we feel even more strongly that there is a real demand for authentic, good Korean food.

As far as a 2x2 option is concerned, yes, we can work that out!

Nicolas Fernandes | The Jersey Journal

For most kids, summer vacation is a time for playing sports, hanging with friends and maybe even a part-time job.

But for 10 Jersey City high school students with a passion for art, this summer has been spent painting murals and learning from experienced artists ? all while getting paid.

Since the Jersey City Mural Arts Program hired teens ages 15 to 18 as summer apprentices, the group has collaborated on four public art projects throughout the city.

The students were hired through Jersey City Summer Works program and worked three days a week at $8.25 an hour.

"We all have fun," said Maya Sanders, 15, who is participating in the program. "It's great when you work with different people who are already pros at doing murals."

Among the diverse artists participating in the program are Hungarian-born mural artist Kati Vilim, Montclair-native mural artist Catherine Hart, Mana Contemporary Arts-based artist Bradley Ehrsa and Alvin Petit, the Bethune Center director.

Wow! Would have loved to have their help!

By the way, where do you go to eat when your in the mood for good Korean food(other than of course at home and family)? Any hidden gems or places nearby???


That would be awesome! We're using Kickstarter as a way to get the word out, as well! We only have word of mouth, other places are getting press in the village voice and JC magazine! Hopefully the food will speak for itself.

Nothing in the immediate area comes to mind. Cho Dang Gol, a few blocks north of Ktown in Manhattan, is hands down the best for anything tofu related. Although the BCD formula works for a reason, Cho Dang Gol's handmade tofu keeps it packed with people who actually know Korean food, and are lucky enough to have stumbled upon it.

Han Bat on 35th used to be my go to spot for sul long tang, a bone marrow broth with brisket. The quality fell off a while ago, but I still go on occasion. I can't recommend anything else there.

For really nuts Korean bbq, even more than Palisades park and Edison, the Murray Hill section in Queens is tip-top. Mapo BBQ. This past summer I went to the original Mapo in Seoul, and the one in Queens is topnotch. I know that's not what you want to hear, so for bbq I'll hit up So Moon Nan Jip in Pal park, or Kum Gang San for laaarge parties in Manhattan.

I get enough of it at home, but whenever I'm in one of these areas those are the restaurants I'll hit up.

Yes, the margins on pizza and pasta are astronomical; restaurants attempt a 25-33% food cost. A pizzeria can, with ultimate efficiency, reach closer to 16%.

In the beginning we will keep it manageable, in terms of the number of dishes; we want to make sure we excel in our menu. We will consider branching out after becoming more established.
