I frequently dine around Manhattan while checking out the latest shows, jazz, and classical music venues. Friends recently reminded me that unique, excellent restaurants and sites could be found minutes away in Jersey City.

Intrigued, I took the 4 train down to the Fulton Street Station from Grand Central (take the express 4 or 5 – it’s just 3 stops to Fulton St). From the Fulton Street station, I walked indoors to the magnificent World Trade Center Oculus and PATH train entrance to New Jersey.

After just two stops on the PATH from WTC, I arrived at Jersey City’s Grove Street station by the Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza, which boasts many shopping and dining venues. The area was charming, near the waterfront, and surrounded by new high-rise apartment buildings, many currently being constructed.

I had heard about Latham House’s brunch and arranged to meet friends there. Here are a few photos of the restaurant and neighborhood.

We ordered coffee right away. Our server ensured our coffee remained full and hot without us asking. We got the Smoked Salmon Benedict with local nova, asparagus, poached eggs, hollandaise, a hot biscuit, potatoes, and salad.  The Eggs Your Way dish came with potatoes, applewood smoked bacon, a hot biscuit, homemade jam, and salad.

The food was fresh and delicious and reasonably priced, with generous portions. There was enough to take some home for another meal. 

The seating was comfortable, the facilities were spotless, the staff was polite and attentive, and graciously accommodated special requests. Latham House in Jersey City was worth the trip, and I plan to return soon.
