Chillin’ with Superwoman Shannon Rivero

We recently sat for a great chat with Sam Kirk, the man behind JC’s (two) beloved Sam a.m. eateries. Regulars at his Paulus Hook locale are very likely familiar with the lovely Shannon Rivero, one of his General Managers and a truly fabulous, multi-tasking woman on the move. We enjoyed the chance to interview her […]

In a Rush? Forget Fast Food – Go to Ahri’s Kitchen

We want to give a quick shout out to Ahri’s Kitchen, a cozy Korean café nestled on a residential street in Hamilton Park. This family-owned business serves super-fresh, healthy Korean food that comes quickly, tastes fantastic and makes you feel good to boot. It’s an order at the counter situation, and the food comes fast, […]

Eat, Drink and Enjoy Great Design at Hudson Hall

No one will ever accuse us of being big beer drinkers, but that’s a non-factor when it comes to our total fandom of Hudson Hall, the Eastern-European themed smoke house and beer garden on Marin Boulevard. Opened in 2017 (where Powerhouse Lounge used to be), the space has been meticulously restored to its old-world glory, […]

Park Tavern – Unpretentious and Perfect in Every Way

Constant construction and street closures. Increasingly tight parking and rising costs of, well, everything. Such are the realities of living in a rapidly growing city like ours. A trip to (New) Park Tavern is always the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of JC. Great burgers, awesome outdoor patio, and the best crowd in […]

And while there is no guarantee, the odds for success in the notoriously challenging food industry are big-time enhanced when a business owner possesses the perfect trifecta of experience, creativity, and vision. Such is the case with Sam Kirk, who in […]

To Pasta, With Love

At the Moorefield Group, our diet is definitely carb-conscious, particularly during the shorts and swimwear season. That said, when we do indulge, we want it to be worth it! That’s why we love love love Pasta dal Cuore (“Pasta from the Heart” in Italian), the homemade pasta shop, Italian restaurant and absolute gem on Jersey […]

Nuts about Café Peanut

Why? It’s a cute little café that just opened on Newark Ave. across from the City Courthouse. This cozy coffee shop is a much-welcomed addition to an area rich with great diners and authentic Indian eateries. They serve Kobrick coffee, cold brews, nitro, interesting teas and a decidedly non-coffee or tea drink called cascara. Served […]

This Summer, Savor the Sweet Sounds of Byron Stingily
