Newport Eats Diner (Jersey City)
While in Jersey City and the Newport area, I decided to stop at the Newport Eats Diner. The Newport Eats Diner replaces the Skylark on the Hudson on River Drive. It’s only been open a few weeks, so it was fun to stop by. The view of the Hudson and Manhatten is beautiful.
Newport Eats Diner Atmosphere: A
The Newport Eats Diner is a modern diner built into the side of a skyscraper. It’s not the retro, metallic, building you a picture. The exterior stands out in the downtown. The inside is massive and there is plenty of seating, including booths, tables and a full-length bar.
Newport Eats Diner Coffee: B
The coffee was okay but nothing unique or unusual about it. It was drinkable. The waiter refilled it often, but there wasn’t a lot to say.
Newport Eats Diner Food: B
The Newport Eats Diner menu has most everything a modern diner would have. It’s much more upscale so you won’t find a lot of greasy-spoon staples, but you will find basic high-quality pancakes. A few items on the Newport Eats Diner menu that caught my eye, including the salmon, omelets, and flatbreads.
I decided to order the hummus appetizer which came with pita bread. The hummus was delicious and the pita bread was lightly toasted. It wasn’t burnt or crispy which is always a plus.
For my entree, I ordered one of Newport Eats Diner’s signature flatbreads. It came with grilled chicken, onions, and mixed vegetables. I was expecting it to be a lighter flatbread, but when it came, it was smothered in cheese. It was delicious but nearly impossible to eat with the thin bread. I would order it again and I can see why it’s a signature flatbread.
Newport Eats Diner Service: B
When I first arrived at the Newport Eats Diner, I didn’t realize you were supposed to sit yourself. I stood around for a while before finally, the manager told me to sit anywhere. I imagine during busy times; there is someone at the front at all times. The food service was second to none, and both waiters made sure I had everything I needed.
Newport Eats Diner Cost: $$
For my hummus, flatbread, and coffee, the meal was $24. That’s one of the cheaper meals at the diner as well. It’s more of an upscale, modern restaurant.
Overall Thoughts/Would I come back to Newport Eats Diner?
