Dullboy is our favorite spot in Downtown Jersey City to get drinks and bar snacks before or after dinner. This narrow cocktail bar from the people behind The Garret - which has two bars we like in Manhattan - serves great drinks made with unusual ingredients, like one with nikka gin infused with butterfly pea, mizu sochu green tea, yuzu natural sake. Meet a friend here during Happy Hour, and drink some $8 cocktails or $4 beers while sharing crispy duck fat tater tots topped with a poached egg and rich shredded duck.

Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.
The Meatball Shop
A restaurant on the Lower East Side operating with the sole purpose of turning out ridiculously good meatballs and presenting you a few options in which to consume them.
The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
