Led by Darren Conway and Rebecca Tarantino of RWay Group, known for Pier 13 and Lulu's Lounge at the W in Hoboken, Gringo's will be a casual taqueria spot with outdoor seating and a full bar. With the kitchen led by partner and Jersey City local, Chef Rick Truocchio, the group has also brought in Chef Joe Francis, another local who's worked all around Jersey City - everywhere from Union Republic to The Corkscrew to recently, 9th & Coles. They've been busy menu testing for months and there's a big focus on keeping everything as homemade as possible including the tortillas, the hand-ground and seasoned chorizo, and the seven different salsas they'll have on offer. They're also intent of offering several creative vegetarian/vegan options including a sous-vide carrot & charred cauliflower taco.
Stay tuned for the official opening date!
