New Restaurant Alert: Just Beclaws

A new seafood restaurant, Just Beclaws, is coming to downtown Jersey City at 280 1st Street between Jersey Ave and Coles St.

According to the permits on the window, construction has been going on since late last fall, but a temporary sign just went up within the past two days. The restaurant is self-described as a Vietnamese Cajun seafood restaurant which is an interesting combination. Personally, I think Downtown can use more of all those things, so hopefully this will be good. 


No menu or real website yet, but it does seem like they're in progress and I believe they are hoping to open up mid-spring. There's a help wanted sign in the window and they've got ads posted online saying they're looking for all FOH and BOH positions, so it can't be too far away.

  1. I agree that this is an interesting combination. There's a very large Vietnamese community in Louisiana, though, so it's likely tried and true.

    1. Agreed! I was doing some reading about it and apparently there are a lot of cross-ties amongst the cuisines. I'm looking forward to it.
