Tidal Pokē Co. and Lizzmonade Open at Harborside

Yesterday marked the opening of two pop-ups at Harborside Plaza: Tidal Pokē  Co. and Lizzmonade, both familiar names from events around Jersey City.

Located at 34 Exchange Place in Plaza Two, the vendors are sharing a conjoined workspace but with two separate counters. They'll be open from 8am-7pm every Monday through Friday for at least the next year.

Tidal Pokē Co. is an offshoot of popular downtown coffee shop Short Grain and recently made its debut at this summer's JC Project: Eats. After its popularity there, the owners announced they'd be opening a storefront to sell the Hawaiian-inspired poke bowls, made of rice, raw fish, and various seasonings and toppings, Based off what I saw today, it looks as though they've expanded the concept a little further, offering mixed greens and kale along with the standard white and brown rice and a couple of different proteins. They're still setting things up, so they haven't launched the full menu which will include meals like garlic shrimp scampi and kalua pig, but everything should be operating normally in the near future.

Lizzmonade, known for their hand-muddled lemonades and teas, is also carrying lunchtime staples like salads, soups, and even some pastas to go. They've also started stocking their own cleanse line, complete with a series of juices and will have coffee and some pastries at the pop-up. Everything is freshly made and we can look forward to some more menu enhancements as time goes on.
