Came here for a private party. Cute lounge with artsy decor. Don't expect the food to be great. Great location in the pedestrian zone.

Nothing here is worthy of special praise, except sometimes for the art displayed. Be prepared to be ignored by the bartender if you don't look hip enough.

We found this spot by chance, and sat outside. Lovely casual atmosphere, and attentive service. The menu is simple with just a few choices, which suited us just fine. We tried the muscles, as well as chicken wings. The wait or responded very well to our requests for a few changes. Everything was tasty. Recommended.

Came here to have drinks with some friends. Cocktails were delicious and service was great. The decor of this place is much appreciated as the art displayed was completed by local artist in the area. Played good music as well. Definitely a good place to end the night out!

LITM, sort of a gallery surrounding a restaurant and a bar, ...let's say the management doesn't know what it's doing. Is it a gallery, a restaurant, or a bar? The tables, chairs and benches on which patrons sit are funky, and the benches look uncomfortable. The menu offerings are a mishmash of selections from mac 'n cheese, vegan tasting plates,... More

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 room... 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
