    About: If you haven’t checked out Talde’s newest location -- brought to Jersey City by Dale Talde, John Bush and David Massoni – it’s time to make the trip! Talde's menu is full of the comfort food you crave during the winter months, like Tagliatelle with Bolognese, Fish and Chips with a rouille tartar sauce and Freebird Fried Chicken with Yukon Gold mashed potatoes.

    About: Jersey City’s first official cocktail bar opened recently in place of Park & Sixth and was already listed as Village Voice’s ‘Ten Best News Bars in NYC’. Congrats to Dullboy for being the only bar outside of NYC to be featured! The low-lighted ambiance perfectly complements the bar’s name, which is a tribute to a famous line in Stephen King’s The Shining. While Dullboy does offer a full menu, we recommend trying a few of their hit bar-snacks, like bacon-wrapped cherry tomato tacos and thick-cut rosemary potato chips.
