What We Know

The new vegan restaurant Gaia + Loki will be opening a brick and motor location in downtown Jersey City at 346 Grove Street. Currently, there is a poster in the window depicting the restaurant’s logo along with the words “Coming Soon”. The logo appears to have a woman posing with an artichoke for a head.

There is no word on what the opening date is or what patrons can expect to see on the menu, but if the logo is any indication, there will be plenty of greens. The official Instagram account has yet to post and the website is still under construction. This tells us that this will most likely be Gaia + Loki’s first location.

Hoboken Girl has reached out to Gaia + Loki for more information on the owners, the menu, and what the experience will be like dining at this new vegan spot. We will keep you updated as the details unfold.

While the Hudson County area — and much of the country — was a vegan food desert, Gaia + Loki joins the vegan ranks with Vegan AF, Subia’s Vegan Cafe, and Plant Base in Jersey City as well as Happy Vegans in Hoboken — all fully vegan spots.

The pandemic, while causing a lot of changes in the restaurant landscape, still has seen a variety of businesses opening their doors despite the tough times.

The announcement of Gaia + Loki opening comes soon after the opening of several other businesses in the area. Some of those include Life of Pie, a new pizzeria in MLK Drive owned by Jersey City firefighter, Anthony Sharperson, and Ward F Councilman Jermaine Robinson, and  Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, an automated restaurant that specializes in dumplings is making its way to Hoboken’s Washington Street.

Other new kids on the block include a BBQ spot called Myron Mixon’s Pitmaster BBQ that is taking over the Soul Curry location in Hoboken, Korai Kitchen’s sister Bangladeshi grocery store called Hilsa Grocery, and the very popular New York-based taco spot Tacombi will also be calling Jersey City home.

Some unfortunate small-business closures include Hoboken’s Pavana Yoga, Hudson Yoga Project, and Work it Out, as well as Venezuelan restaurant Sabor a Maiz in the Jersey City Heights.
