Don’t count out this underrated dining destination
In the last five years, downtown Jersey City has exploded with diverse restaurants, helped along by lower costs and the rezoning of main drag Newark Avenue into a partially pedestrian-only street lined with restaurants and bars.
Orale Mexican Kitchen
Street food gets an ultra-hip setting — graffiti-ed walls, neon lights, and bright colors — at Orale, where locals go for Mexican food and a raucous scene. There are plenty of easygoing tacos and guacamole to pair with a myriad of margaritas, and a very lively bar scene. It all adds up to make this an especially great place for groups.
