Last night, John and I went to Marco & Pepe, a neighborhood restaurant in Jersey City. "We offer artisanal fare in a warm, welcoming place" is how they describe themselves on their website. We have been there several times, it being the closest of several restaurants in the area John and I really like. In most restaurants, John and I are pretty lame, we find one dish we like and order that every time. Marco & Pepe is different. Everything on the menu looks appetizing, and every dish we have tried has been a smash. Most of their dishes come in a small plate size as well which is nice, because it prevents us from eating way too much, an easy thing to do at a place this good.
Kane Brewing Company. It was on tap.
So if you live in the North Jersey, or New York metropolitan area, I really can't encourage you enough to visit Marco & Pepe. And, apparently they serve brunch.
