I like superlatives; the freshest produce, the creamiest burrata, the frothiest cappuccino, the best restaurants! Maritime Parc, the yacht-like gem nestled in Liberty State Park, is absolutely fit for superlatives – the problem is picking just one!
On a recent cold, clear night, Mr. Hot and I ventured to Jersey City to join a few friends at a press dinner at Maritime Parc. In a steely, open kitchen, perched above Liberty Landing Marina, Manhattan's pulse rippled across the Hudson, as chef and owner, Chris Siversen, created an evening of undeniable cuisine.

Located on the bottom floor of a luxury rental building on Washington Boulevard in Jersey City, the newly opened restaurant VB3 offers revamped Italian classics with a decidedly local flair.
The menu, composed of a selection of small plates perfect for mixing and sharing, changes often to highlight the local produce offerings of the seasons. With prices ranging from eight to twenty-five dollars, you can compose a complete meal for a reasonable price. The staff, chefs, and owners were all beyond wonderful, and proud of what they had to offer.
