A Little Bit of Everything

I went to LITM on Friday after reading that they were going to host a party for a trendy Jersey City barber shop later on in the month. I work in the grittier section of JC, Journal Square, so it is a quick PATH ride to Grove Street and the occasion seemed appropriate. The space is fine with one... read more

I was looking to Open Table to see what tables were available at 8 on a Thursday night and this came up. I had confused it with another place, so I was a bit surprised when I realized it was not the place I thought. Still the menu looked great on Open Table so we were happy to try a... More

If you want to attend an art opening in downtown JC, this is the place. Each month there is a new, usually local, artist on display. The first Tuesday of the month is usually the date of the opening though check the website. The drink menu is fun and creative. The menu is clearly marked for vegetarians and there are... More

The food is a bit on the pricey side but worth it. Service on the other hand was poor. The food & drinks menu have excellent choices to choose from. The food is worth making another trip there.

I've been a fan of mixed drinks and this bar/restaurant has a great selection of mixed drinks to meet everyone's taste needs. Whether you like your drinks on the sweeter side I'd recommend a Salvador Dali, or if you like a little bit of everything try the Monet. Overall, the drinks are great!

Mac and cheese is one of my favorite indulgence meals and LITM's has won awards for a few years running. It was delectable, customizable to your specifications, and you can taste the hint of truffle oil, which gives it that extra je ne sais quoi. The menu has loads of appealing choices, so we plan to return. Service was spotty... More

The thing which was really terrible? The bartender (a man) was so cold that it was near practically rude. When asked for salt the look and... More

Good for drinks, but the crowd changes from night to night. Have been there when it is young hipsters making too much noise, and been there when it's been super chill older people. No matter, the cocktails and appetizers are excellent.
