Surf City, the Jersey City sandy beach megabar and restaurant, is back for another season. The lovely waterfront outdoor oasis just across the Hudson offers playful frozen cocktails and an inventive menu featuring land and sea favorites. It is the perfect get-away from the city.
The popular restaurant provides extraordinary views of Manhattan and Liberty Island with both indoor and al fresco waterfront dining, three indoor and outdoor bars, four dining decks and a sandy beach with fire pits.
Master restaurateur John Argento has enlisted culinary dynamo, Executive Chef Franco Robazetti, to helm the kitchen. The menu simply put is fun and full of flavor. Every item on the list is something that will bring you pleasure on this mini-vacation.
The freshest seafood selections include Lobster Rolls, salmon, lobster quesadillas, scrumptious Seafood Paella, and Grilled Mayan Shrimp served with seasonal vegetables and yellow rice and Snow Crab Legs with a white wine garlic sauce, potatoes and corn.
Surf City also offers a variety of burgers including the Baja Burger with Pepper Jack Cheese and Guacamole, the BBQ Burger with smoked BBQ sauce, apple wood bacon sautéed onion and jalapeno and the California Veggie Burger with guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes and pepper jack cheese.
And, if you are in the mood for a drink the colorful tropical frozen drinks are truly wonderful. Choices will include the Mango Tango, a layered Mango and Strawberry Daiquiri, the Lava Flow, a Pina Colada with flowing strawberry puree and rum, the Island Fusion, a banana, strawberry, light rum and coconut rum concoction and the Miami Vice, a layered Pina Colada and Strawberry Daiquiri. Apart from the frozen drinks and cocktails, Surf City will have over rotating 25 craft beers on tap, including Harpoon Raspberry Hefeweisen, Captain Lawrence Sunblock, Landshark and Ithaca Apricot Ale.
“At Surf City we are aiming to create the ultimate staycation for locals, New Yorkers and travelers alike,” said Director of Operations John Argento. He continues, ” Surf City will be a total escape complimented by outrageous cocktails and the freshest sea fare.”
Surf City offers free parking and is easily reachable by Light Rail, the PATH Train or boat. It is located at 1 Marin Boulevard in Jersey City and you can learn more at www.surfcitybar.com.
