These up-and-coming spots are sure to soon be some of the best places to eat in NJ!


    McGinley Square Pub

    About: This new restaurant in Jersey City opened its doors in May 2015 and touts a unique motto: “No Wi-Fi: Talk to each other.” The pub’s lack of TVs is no mistake either; owner Angelo Hatzipetrou is looking to promote the social aspect of going to a pub. The Journal Square location is ideal for locals that are interested in socializing with each other, instead of focusing on technology.

    Address: 755 Montgomery St, Jersey City, NJ 07306

    I’ve Got Crabs N Some

    About: Glasboro, New Jersey’s newest seafood joint made its grand opening on August 14th after operating only as a food truck for three years prior. The family business is owned by Carmen and Rita Presti, life-long fisher people with a passion for seasoning a steamed crab to perfection! We’re very excited about the restaurant’s new permanent location and happy to add them to the list of best places to eat in NJ!
