Score a Free Pizza When This New Jersey City, NJ Pizzeria Opens
The owners of Basile’s Pizza in Hoboken are expanding to Jersey City and they have a great way to celebrate their grand opening.
Historic downtown Jersey City posted on Instagram that Basile’s Pizza will be handing out free pizza slices on its opening day in early August.
Jersey City is unofficially known as the pizza capital of our state, so add free pizza to that? It is really worth the detour.
Jersey City has more than good pizza when it comes to food.
Restaurant week is currently happening in Jersey City until July 31st and they are not only showcasing their amazing restaurants but also cafes, bakeries, food trucks and pizzerias.
Basile’s Pizza in Hoboken is located on Washington Street, basically the “main street” in town, and I definitely let myself go after a long night out.
The Jersey City location will be at 116 Newark Avenue near the Grove Street PATH station, but that’s not the only new restaurant to open this summer.
Shake Shack will open at 94 Christopher Columbus Drive, just across from Grove Path Plaza, and Salt + Ginger, what they call a “Shanghai Chinese restaurant,” just opened at 313 Grove Street.
This all stems from the new and improved Newark Avenue pedestrian plaza that the city is calling “Restaurant Row.”
It’s a project Jersey City has been working on for years and now the pedestrian mall has expanded to Grove Street between Montgomery Street and Columbus Drive, as well as 1st Street and Newark Avenue.
This opens the door to many new restaurants in the future.
