Welcome to the Heights Section of Jersey City, NJ



Central Avenue Restaurant Guide

Jersey City's Restuarant Row: In March 2016, Jersey City's City Council unanimously voted on the recommendation to expand Jersey City's Restaurant Overlay Zone (ROZ) to The Heights. Central Avenue and Palisade have joined Downtown's Newark Avenue in Jersey City's Restaurant Row as a result of the expansion thus improving the Heights as a dining destination. The ROZ has many benefits and holds the potential to attract new businesses, jobs, and shoppers to the district. With over 50 storefront locations already in the food service industry along Central Avenue, foodies love The Heights neighborhood.

With cuisine rich in traditional, ethnic flavors, the Jersey City Heights offers some of the very best dining and delivery options in Jersey City. If you are looking for a quick bite our deli’s, coffee shops, and other luncheonettes have just the thing. Experience the unique tastes of Jersey City at any of the restaurants or try or order in for your favorite Jersey City Heights restaurants at home. Come have a taste of the Jersey City Heights!
