Enjoy Your Holiday Dinner at These Jersey City Restaurants

02Dec

If you’re planning on hosting Christmas dinner this year, you’re probably already planning on spending every minute from when the kids open their presents to when they go to sleep cooking in your Beacon kitchen. However, with all of the amazing restaurants nearby open for Christmas dinner, there’s no need to spend Dec. 25 cooking over a hot stove.

Kick back this Christmas and enjoy items such as baked ham, prime rib, roasted Brussels sprouts and gingerbread without ever picking up a single pan. These eateries near your Beacon apartment have all of your Christmas wishes on their tables!

Blue Eyes Restaurant, located at 525 Sinatra Dr, Hoboken which is 10 minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a light-filled, modern Italian restaurant with a Frank Sinatra theme and a riverfront patio with skyline views.

If you’re looking for a taste of Italy this Christmas, then Blue Eyes Restaurant is the place to go – they have a wood burning oven made out of bricks that has been flown from Naples, Italy, to offer you the most authentic pizza Napoletana. Plus, they serve a variety of pastas, appetizers, paninis, desserts, gelato and assorted coffees.

Porto Leggero, located at 185 Hudson St, Jersey City which is 10 minutes from your Beacon apartment, is an upscale, chandelier-filled venue serving Italian fare in a high-ceilinged space with tall windows.

Fully exposed behind a two-story wall of glass, the modern interior is softened with mahogany archways, tumbled brick and richly textured upholstery. The finely appointed tables are dressed in white linen. Although waterfront restaurants are plentiful along the Gold Coast of the Hudson, few have a cuisine comparable to Porto Leggero.
