This will be DePersio's second restaurant in Jersey City and his fourth establishment overall, although the first to branch away from his Italian background. DePersio is planning a Modern American menu and is aiming for a relaxed neighborhood feel. While this isn't a surprise and will most likely be well-executed if the meals at Battello are anything to go by, I'm a bit disappointed to see yet another chicken-tuna-burger menu hit downtown.

Thirty Acres is set to close November 28th and since it's a currently functioning restaurant and just needs minor changes, it will most likely reopen in early 2016 as The Kitchen Step under DePersio and his team.
