Raval Opens This Week!

Spanish tapas bar Raval , (136 Newark Ave, off of Grove) is set to have their grand opening on Wednesday, May 27th and their ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, May 29th at 5pm. Run by Restaurant Development Group, the owners of Satis Bistro, this is one of the most anticipated restaurant openings of the year (at least by me) and the team behind it has been hard at work over the past several months, getting everything ready, creating mosaics, putting up art, and finalizing the menus.

Market Season Begins!

It's Farmers' Market season in Jersey City! This weekend, Van Vorst Park and Riverview Market are kicking off the first Farmers' Markets of the season.

The market at Van Vorst starts Saturday morning at 8:30am and will run until about 3pm. This year, they're anticipating having their regular farmers with fresh produces, eggs, cheese, flowers, honey, and more as well as Hoboken Farms with lots of prepared specialties and breads, and X-Calibur for all your knife sharpening needs and they'll be welcoming O'LaLa Empanadas, a specialty high-end meat supplier, Bucket & Bay gelato, specialty pickle and olive oil vendors, and a fresh juice stand along with much more. Spending Saturday morning wandering through the beautiful Van Vorst Park is a great way to enjoy the weekend - especially with some modcup, another vendor at the market, in hand.
