Jersey Wine and Spirits

Jersey Avenue Wine and Spirits, formerly Willie's liquor, during renovations

This upscale liquor store provides a wide selection of wines organized by region. Often they offer tastings. The refrigerator cases will also have emergency supplies of cheese. The beer selection is eclectic and while you won't find your frat party 30 packs of nattie ice, they do have some nice imports and otherwise hard to find beers. The spirits section is rather small, but in a pinch has the basics.

La Rustique Pizzeria in downtown Jersey City

La Rustique offers high end brick oven pizza and a small Italian cafe menu. The thin crust pizza is fairly unique in the downtown, baked with sauce on top of the cheese.

Carnival Cleaners

They claim on site dry cleaning, but many suspect they actually ship out; apathetic customer service and unwillingness to meet customer needs makes us go elsewhere.

Expired milk and warm refrigeration has gotten this store shut down by the health department in the past. New management has taken over and seems to be cleaning up the place, but has lead to labor disputes with unionized workers.

Brownstoner Diner

Typical diner food. The staff is rude, the food is greasy, and apparently for a while leaving a tip on a credit card was a problem. Small parking lot fills up quickly, often a line. Best diner in Jersey City.
