Nourishment & Libations
- The Big Apple Sport Palace - Best wings and thin crust pie in town according to history! They're not known as Bayonne's best sports bar for no reason.
- The Venice Restaurant - Ask for John and tell him Park Bayonne sent you-you might just get a glass of sangria on the house!
- Lot 13 Longbar & Restaurant - If craft beer is your jam, this is the only place to go. Don't sleep on the fresh burgers or Bavarian pretzel either.
- The Rock Pub and Grill - Cornhole? Shuffleboard? It's happy hour heaven. Or make every Sunday a funday with $0.25 wings and loaded Blood Mary's.
- Café Bello Ristorante - Enjoy a sitdown Italian dinner or upgrade your wine and pizza game at the bar.
- El Aguila Dorada - Feelin' spicy? Best margaritas on the block.
- Laicos - Scenes from an Italian restaurant (a bottle of red, a bottle of white...). One of Jersey City's best hidden gems just past our city line.
- Broadway Diner - Disco fries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if you so please.
- The Little Food Café - Because sometimes, we need to eat a bit lighter, but make sure to grab a brownie on your way out.
- Buon Appetito Restaurant & Delicatessen - What's a North Jersey town without an authentic Italian deli? Even better? They have a full service dining room too!
