Tag Archives: Waterfront restaurants in jersey city


Like many businesses near the water in NJ, Skylark on the Hudson located in Jersey City’s Newport section had to undergo a round of renovations after receiving water damage from Superstorm Sandy. Within the last 5 months slowly, we have seen restaurants and retail life come back strong along the Hudson River, and this is a prime example!

What’s interesting is that Constantine Katsifis, owner and NJ restaurateur, turned the temporary closing into an opportunity: he refreshed Skylark’s menu and hired a new chef, Darryl Harmon. Chef Harmon, a native of South Jersey, will be using his local roots and culinary skills to enhance Skylark’s Jersey-focused, farm-to-table menu, which supports area farms by using their in-season fruits and vegetables.
