Jersey City suggestions?

Beth P. | May 16, 2001 05:16 PM

I just finished doing a search on Jersey City restaurants and came up with oodles of tips, most of which are unfortunately from '99. I'll be having an early-ish dinner (6 or 6:30) in or around Jersey City this Saturday (traveling by car from Manhattan), and I'm looking for recommendations for places with great food, particularly anything that is better in JC than in NYC (Manhattan in particular).

Keeping in mind that I'll have a car to park (a necessary evil since I'll be carting stuff-- is parking going to be a total nightmare?), can anyone help me narrow down this list or suggest other places that I shouldn't miss?

Kurry n Kabab
Chowpatty (or other Gujarati places)
La Conquita
West Indian place on Grove north of Tania's-- anyone know the name?
West Indian place on Newark Ave. (again, no name)
Nicole's on Jersey Ave.

What kind of food does The Iron Monkey have?

I get the feeling there's no longer any good Portuguese food there, but maybe someone knows something.

I'm assuming the Italian places mentioned (Casa Dante, Pronto Cena and Presto's) aren't worth a special trip, but correct me if I'm wrong.
