Read on to learn more about New Jersey’s new restaurants and follow each one on social media for ongoing updates and announcements. Congratulations to all the new Garden State restaurants opening this month!
Mutiny BBQ Company, Asbury Park
Bringing together several elements of the country’s best barbecue in one space, Mutiny BBQ takes inspiration from Texas, Kansas City, Memphis, the Carolinas and Louisiana, and works to create high-quality tails in small batches. The restaurant also serves and offers an on-site barbecue for private events, with options such as rib, brisket, and burnt ends of pork belly. Follow Mutiny BBQ on social media for an official opening date.
Tacoshop, Cape May Courthouse
This Cape May County staple recently moved to a newer and larger space in the Cape May Courthouse. Concept by James Beard-nominated Lucas Manteca, everything here is made from scratch, including the slowly roasted brisket and birria-style pork. Beyond tacos, discover empanadas and street corn. The spot also includes gluten-free and vegan options.
Courtyard House, East Rutherford (at American Dream)
The chain known for its massive drinks and extensive beer list has made its way to another New Jersey location, the American Dream Mall in East Rutherford. Visit to savor wings, pizza, and plenty of sandwiches (including their fiery hot Nashville Chicken Sandwich). Happy Hour offers include half-price appetizers and pizza, and $ 2 off most drinks; and don’t forget to order your beer in an iconic garden glass!
Gigi and Mario, Edgewater
This Italian-American pizzeria serves more than just pizza. While their pies are the stars of the show, with toppings including cherry clams and buffalo mozzarella, they offer plenty of other options as well. Starters include grilled artichokes and fresh burrata, while entrees include a New York strip and broccoli and sausage cavatelli. Those who dine out can enjoy views of the skyline of Manhattan’s upscale neighborhoods.
Enjoy a meal and feel good about what you eat at Crumb. With a menu that changes daily, visitors will never be short of options. Crumb incorporates high quality ingredients, from 24 month aged prosciutto to black truffle sauce. It offers salads and sandwiches, all served on their homemade bread. Also be sure to try their salivating cinnamon buns. Crumb opens on November 6.
Tiger Sugar, Little Ferry
This Taiwanese bubble drink chain has made waves in the United States. And now he’s coming to New Jersey. The brand has grown in popularity for its photo-worthy drinks, which incorporate caramelized brown sugar and crème fraîche. (The brown sugar creates a tiger stripe appearance, giving the brand its name.) Plus, their syrups and tapiocas undergo a tedious eight-hour cooking process that you just have to taste to believe.
Green Lane Market, Maplewood
Green Way Market is not just another grocery store. The Market prides itself on providing customers with the best possible experience, from an on-site cafe and burger bar to cold beers on tap. Green Way offers many high quality products and its own brand Green Way also offers inexpensive organic products.
Millburn Deli, Montclair
This popular Essex County grocery store continues to grow with its brand new location in Montclair. This is the grocery store’s third storefront after opening a second location in Morristown, in 2020. Customers can savor all of the restaurant’s classics, including its Sloppy Joe and Godfadda, which include scallops from chicken, bacon, mozzarella and a Russian dressing – wow. The deli replaces Watchung Deli on Park Street.
Known for their quality meats served on freshly baked buns, PrimoHoagies is now in the Rockaway area. The South Philadelphia deli has made its way to North Jersey, with franchise owners Felix Galinsky and Anthony Phalange opening their second location in North Jersey. (The duo opened a location in Mahwah amid the pandemic.) Classic hoagies include Philly Cheese Steak and Schwartzie Corned Beef.
