We love a good burger here at The Hoboken Girl, and Jersey City is about to get yet another delicious burger spot. Left Bank Burger Bar, located at 194 Newark Avenue in JC, recently announced that it would be opening a second location in the Bergen-Lafayette section of Jersey City. Read on for what we know about the new storefront and what we love about Left Bank Burger Bar.
The New Location
Left Bank Burger Bar’s second Jersey City location will be a new concept at 196 Pine Street in Bergen-Lafayette, taking over the former sam a.m. storefront that has been vacant since 2019. The new spot will be called Left Bank – Lafayette, and you can stay updated with any new details on its Instagram. Per Left Bank – Lafayette’s only post so far, the new location is looking to open in summer 2023.

About Left Bank Burger Bar
Left Bank Burger Bar’s original location is located a few blocks from the Grove Street PATH station at 194 Newark Avenue for easy access from NYC or Hoboken. The interior is very casual and burger-y and includes a full bar, and there is outdoor seating as well. The spot is open from 11:30AM-9PM Sunday through Thursday, and from 11:30AM-10PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
The menu here consists of a variety of burgers and sandwiches, as well as a selection of appetizers, salads, fries, and onion rings. There is also the option to build your own sandwich — where you choose the protein (beef, turkey, chicken, or veggie), cheese, sauce, and a variety of regular and premium toppings like grilled mushrooms, jalapenos, sweet bacon tots, and avocado.

Although all of the options on the menu sound delicious, we especially love the Ghostface Killer burger here — which consists of an espresso-rubbed beef burger, ghost pepper jam, smoked, gouda, sweet bacon tots, red onions, tomato, and BBQ sauce. Other options that catch the eye include the Hot Honey Chicken sandwich with spicy fried chicken, pickles, bacon, spicy slaw, and hot honey; the Mon Cheri with a beef patty, gruyere cheese, french onion confit, grilled portobello, mixed greens, and roasted garlic aioli; and more. HG pro tip: order the onion rings with your sandwich — they are juicy onions inside perfectly breaded crispiness.
