There are some new hot spots opening in Jersey City this spring/early summer. One is a restaurant on Pedestrian Ave and the other is a well-known crepe spot that is just a ten-minute walk from your Madox Apartment.
The Ashford – Although they haven’t opened yet, The Ashford is giving us a sneak peak on their menu, event space and rooftop bar on their website. Their weekly events include everything from Taco Tuesdays, weekend brunch ($2.00 mimosas & $5.00 margaritas until 6pm), slider Fridays ($2.00 sliders 4pm-7pm), happy hour (Monday – Friday 4pm-7pm) and wing Monday’s (1/2 price wings and $12.00 select pitchers). The Ashford will also have the largest rooftop bar in Jersey City and a beautiful space for private events. We can’t wait to check them out!
Crepe Guru – These crepes are made from scratch and include everything from Nutella and fruit to cheese and savory meats. Their menu isn’t officially done yet but you can check out their online dessert menu which includes favorites such as the Nutty Caramel Apple (warm apple pie filing cooked with cinnamon and topped with crushed walnuts, caramel, and vanilla ice cream), The Brownie Crepe (melted marshmallows topped with chocolate chip brownie, covered in Nutella chocolate and vanilla ice cream) and the New York Cheesecake (New York cheesecake cooked inside a crepe and topped with strawberries and MORE Nutella). If you prefer a savory crepe you can check out their menu here. One of our favorites is the “Chicken Dynomite!” (voted best crepe, cheddar cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, honey mustard dressing & Cholula hot sauce). The shop will begin deliveries by May 15 and will open completely by June 1.
