Time for my 2 cents,....yup, it's great! Sauteed some beautiful scallops last night from the 99 Ranch Market went back again today. Clean, efficient, astonishing inventory, and they're open till 9pm.

Moreover, when I went to ShopRite on Saturday to grab a bottle of wine, the grocery checkout lines were manageable, which is very rare for a Saturday afternoon, hopefully some of the excess capacity is making the drive over to 99 Ranch.



It's the shizzle mah nizzle, and the mini food courts rocks out with the noodle soup with some roast pork with hainanese chicken combo take home.

I've been holding off checking them out due to being anti-social and hating crowds. ;) Is it safe to go there yet? Long lines?

THIS. 100%. You couldn't have said it better; too many people automatically think that limited options, coupled with high prices, equals BETTER.

I *really* wanted to support JC Fishstand, but their prices were SO ridiculous that I couldn't bring myself to open my wallet. They manage the impossible feat of making Whole Foods look like a bargain. I have gotten the same type and quality of fish from farmer markets in NYC and paid considerably lower prices.

The ordinance specifically excludes grocery stores, but even if it didn't, 99 Ranch wouldn't fall under the definition of a chain store because it has only one other location on the East Coast. Also I'm pretty sure Old Colony falls right outside "downtown" as defined by that particular ordinance. The fish department is amazing. I was there over the weekend - incredible selection, everything fresh and very reasonably priced. That fish stand on Jersey Ave will probably be OK, because JC now has a critical mass of people who think paying much more for a limited selection of artisanal fish sold by hipsters is how you become a discerning seafood consumer.

You mean their crappy selection of overpriced thawed out seafood?

I went yesterday and it was fun browsing all of the aisles. I'm so happy this place came to JC and won't need to go to Chinatown or Edgewater to get my fix of asian ingredients. Will I do my shopping here on a regular basis? No. But will I go here from time to time? Definitely.

I stopped by today and have to say I understand why my family in CA love this place. The seafood was very fresh and there was a good variety, and the same can be said for the hot prepared food. I can see myself getting fat from the hot dim sum bar. A great addition to JC.

You're going to want to shop there. I used to go to Ranch 99 all the time when I lived in CA. It's a great store to have access to again.

If it's as good as H-Mart, I would shop there. If it's a rehashed 555, that would be sad

(I tried to find the old thread for this but could not - sorry!)

I received a mailer today announcing the opening of the 99 Ranch Market (the old Pathmark) - it looks interesting. They boast a free clean, steam & fry seafood service; dim sum and hot deli; live seafood; house made bakery items; and fresh meat and produce.

The first 200 customers get a free surprise gift with purchase of $20 or more and there are bonuses for spending $20 or more during special promotional windows.

Grand opening; 4/21 - 9am
420 Grand Street
Business Hours: 9am to 8pm
