Jules on West Side Ave was home-cooked, family-owned, unpretensious greatness.

(and the heights location was nothing compared to the one on West Side Ave)


Get Real, jules on westside ave was aweful, ate there once and had Heartburn for a month...

The one on Franklin st in the Heights was much better.

YIKES....

That wouldn't be your heights-bred bias showing, now would it?

Amen to that !

The owner died the the business was sold to a foreign investor. That was a good place I'm not sure if many people appreciated the quality and value it conveyed.


Yeah, some Asians had purchased it and tried to Infuse some California rolls, notwithstanding a few weeks later the place had been padlocked by the sheriff for unpaid debts.....

What a Shame.

You mean like the PAD vote?
Or the booting?

Somehow I had a different view of their priorities.

Back to the subject at hand. Moochies?

What I meant even though this site was intended for the Downtown area suggestions were added to guide people to other sections of J.C. This site even has catagories for the subject at hand such as "Not in Jersey City" And when a council vote is needed to pass resolutions Steve Fulop does not cast the only ballot the other 8 council members also vote whether it is in the council member's ward or not. Moochie's was short lived I never got the chance to get in there.

This site has officially become a Heights/Journal Square site. I very respectfully bow out.

I agree but by being this way it expands the horizons of J.C. Sometimes you have to look outside of the box. Why miss out on what J.C. has to offer. Your tax dollars go to the same address for all residents. And the 5 other council members and 3 at large vote for Downtown's best interest. I don't think it's wise to partition yourselves when other parts of your city may affect you.

* Tippy's in the Heights on Kennedy Blvd (garden center now)

* Rands Ice Cream between Pavonia and Newark Avenues. It was the best ice cream anywhere. People walked or drove from all parts of Jersey City for their sundaes (now a closed down check cashing place).

* Lunch counter at Liss Pharmacy up the square. Big haired servers that worshiped Mayor Hague and probably got lucky on Armistice Day. Great BLTs and coffee.

1. the canton tea garden (journal square staple and jersey city landmark, now becoming a bally's)

2. ko-shing (great gourmet chinese food on montgomery across from the projects)

3. mullally's (newark at five corners, used to be a great lunch spot when i worked in the courthouse.)

4. diblazi's pizza (used to be on beacon at baldwin, best pizza in the heights until they closed in the early 90's)

5. the flamingo (i know it's still open, but they lost their overnight waitress and now the vibe is even worse than the horrible office style lights. they are renovating soon, so bye bye they go.)

6. pura vida (i know it's not a restuarant, but i really miss this place a lot.)

7. fresh tortilla's grill (journal square, not downtown)

i'm sure i can think of more if i drove around and realized something else was missing...

Walter's Luncheonette (which later became Kitchen Cafe)

In high school we made up a song to remember the daily special sandwiches at Walter's. Monday was sausage day and you had to get there before 12:30 or they would probably be sold out. I can still taste the hot pastrami sandwich there and have not had one as good since they left. They had a few booths and a long counter to sit at. The kitchen was in the same spot it is in now. I used the old wooden phone booth there to call in sick to school before hopping on the PATH into the city. Walter (really named George, I think Walter was his dad?) was a class act with a great sense humor. This was the late 80's and early 90's.

Miss them, and add Lisa's Roti recent demise to the Caribbean losses. Nicole's jerk doesn't compare to either of theirs.

And Al and Moe's Pizza! you could get a killer lunch plate of eggplant parm and ziti for $3.

There was some pretty good guff and graw going on in the parking lot, too.

I lived across the street from Lucy's for several years, had breakfast and lunch there several times a week and never tired of eating there. Sad to see it go but happy for Lucy!

You hit the nail on the head with Tippy's but I have to say the plant, fruit & vegetable market that replaced it is ok in my book.
