Jersey City, New Jersey, has long been overshadowed by its more famous neighbor. And I get it: New York City is bigger with more to experience and more people to meet – not to mention there are way more restaurants, many of which have been crowned among the best in the world. But let’s not overlook the underdog.
Jersey City, though small in comparison to New York City, is crowded with some of the most interesting food in the United States. In fact, the New York Times already declared that the best pizza in New York City is actually at downtown Jersey City’s Razza. I know it’s not a competition, but Jersey City restaurants have just as much style, ambience, and, of course, good food as anything you’ll find in New York.
