    Written by:

    Fall has arrived! We’re ready to put on our oversized cozy cardis, pick up a pumpkin spice latte, and savor the pleasant chill in the air and the changing of the leaves {because if being basic is wrong we don’t wanna be right…}. And what better way to enjoy the season than to dine outdoors at our favorite restaurants and take in the scenery? Grab your denim jacket and scarf and check out these Jersey City restaurants with a great fall view.

    Taphaus {2 Second Street}

    Offering a location in Jersey City, this restaurant on Second Street has beautiful views of the Hudson and offers fun appetizers {hello, asparagus fries}, killer burgers, and original cocktails to boot {or should we say boots? ‘Tis the season}. Taphaus also has outdoor seating, which is perfect for taking in the outdoor greenery lining the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and savoring the autumn weather.

    Hamilton Inn {708 Jersey Avenue}
