Hoboken Travels: The Fox and Crow in Jersey City Heights

Take a quick trip up the Ninth Street elevator and you’ll find yourself in Jersey City Heights, where new hidden gems are starting to pop up on the reg – including Fox & Crow, a rustic, low-key pub and parlour.  The sign is small, but you can’t miss the colorful, graffitied exterior.  Go inside and it {almost} feels just like you’re in Brooklyn…whether that’s good or bad, is up to you!

The front area is dimly lit with cozy, vintage style light bulbs hanging from the ceiling, wallpaper filled with bare-branches, and even a {maybe} faux-stuffed fox nestled on one of the shelves keeping an eye over the bar.  This is considered the pub section of the restaurant, and its extensive beer selection and crafty cocktails make it a prime location to throw a few back.

NOT REAL. Promise!

One drink that especially stood out was the Mod Fashion, which is F&C’s take on an Old Fashioned.  They teamed with other Heights locals Modcup Coffee to include coffee concentrate, {which gives it a bit of a kick on the finish}.  Another option for anyone with a sweet tooth is an alcoholic root beer float made from Not Your Father’s Root Beer, vanilla ice cream and topped off with some whipped cream.

As far as the food goes, the menu is on the smaller side but what they do have is drool-worthy.  Unique homemade burger combinations include toppings such as bacon marmalade or asian slaw, plus vegetarian {black bean burger} and pescatarian {crabby patty} options.  Every burger comes with a side of hand cut french fries and you essentially get an entire potato all to yourself {unless sharing is your thing}.  The two salads on the menu looked tasty too, but it’s pretty much impossible to resist those burgers and fries once you see them.

If you find yourself there late night and on the weekend, make sure to head into the back parlour for live music…and not just your typical cover bands either, most of the acts play something of the jazz and bluegrass variety.  While there is no formal cover charge, a $10 donation is suggested which goes directly to the musicians.

Overall, if you’re looking for somewhere to hang out with a tasty drink, a juicy burger and some great live music, venture up the cliff to Fox & Crow located at 594 Palisade Avenue in Jersey City {Heights}.
