Big Chef, La Conguita Restaurant & Hard Grove has been here since I have been here. I did not know the rest of the city back then, I lived in my DTJC bubble.

A fun excercise, harkening back to the dark old days when DTJC didn?t have so goddam many restaurants. When I moved in ?93, Helen?s & Stella?s pizza seemed like institutions. I think Shadman was there, and Ibby?s opened a couple years later.
Presto?s and Komegashi were favorites from those early days. Iron Monkey opened mid-90s.

I used to love the old Newport Pancake House (predecessor to the Brownstone Diner... run by the same family).

I agree, once you get out of downtown, you?re in a different world, with places like Miss America Diner and White Mana (that have been around since the 1940s) at the far end of the scale.

You can get from the Heights to DTJC very easily using the Jitneys. They go down Palisade to the Grove St PATH Station, and beyond to the mall.

Uber is also making transportation within JC much more convenient.

For me, since it's easier to get to midtown Manhattan from the Heights than it is to get to DTJC (there is only the 8, which runs hourly) the chefs may as well stay in Manhattan.

I have a health condition that precludes me from taking the jitneys - SIDS (status income discrepancy syndrome). I can't deal with the ghetto jitneys...

Don't forget Presto's, which has been around as long as I have been here (14+ years). There are quite a few others that have been here long term.

Not sure if you're addressing me, but my point was to play the game of naming restaurants here longer than 10 years.


Yes, and the point being?

Yes, HP Ale House! I couldn't remember the name. I was thinking they just kept the same name under the new management after Maggie went to open Skinner's. Thanks for the clarification

Taqueria has been here since I think 2005-ish, so not quite 10 yet.

This actually sounds like a fun game. I agree that there probably won't be a lot (at least not downtown . Maybe more in other parts of the city?) I'll go with downtown places.

Edward's Steakhouse
Madame Claude
The Taqueria (I think?)
Grand Banks
Komeghashi
Brownstone
Light Horse
La Conguita
Hamilton Inn
Dorian's

Are Top Chefs Really Fleeing New York for Jersey City?
Restaurants owned by reputable chefs are popping up across the river from the culinary center of the world

The Daily Meal
November 21, 2014 | 05:53 PM
By Joanna Fantozzi, Editor

Move over, New York. Jersey City is fighting to become one of the culinary hotspots of the Northeast. But will they succeed? It?s tough to tell, but several chef alums from well-known restaurants in New York like Eleven Madison Park, Momofuku Noodle Bar, Allen & Delancey, and Pork Slope, have made the move to Jersey City to open their own restaurants across the river.

In the past 18 months, 10 new restaurants have opened in the New Jersey city on the Hudson, including the rustic French Kitchen at Grove Station by chef David Viana (formerly at Eleven Madison Park and Batello); small plates and ramen caf? Union Republic by chef Gregory Torrech (alum of Resto, Allen & Delancey); Thirty Acres by chef Kevin Pemoulie (formerly of Craftbar and Momofuku Noodle Bar), and the Asian-American restaurant Talde, run by chef Dale Talde (a Top Chef contestant who trained with Masaharu Morimoto and Jean Georges).
