Jersey City is getting another Mexican restaurant!
After Colonette Diner closed their doors, the space on Rt. 440 sat empty for quite some time but now it looks as though La Mexicana, a new restaurant and lounge, has moved in and is bringing it back to life.
Located at 405 State Route 440, La Mexicana is most easily accessed by car although the 80 bus and light rail will also get you within easy walking distance. It's larger than most restaurants in Jersey City and it seems like the extra space will be put to use as more of a social spot rather than just purely for dining. They do have a liquor license and will be offering drinks.
At present, the website doesn't seem to be working, but they do keep up their FB page.
