Porter, a modern American gastropub offering seasonal dishes and signature cocktails, is now open in Weehawken, New Jersey. Chefs Christopher Lim and Tara Glick, who met while working at Marc Forgione’s American Cut in Atlantic City, are offering shareable small plates, coal-fired entrees, and wood-fired pizzas.
Highlights include Prosciutto with gnocco frito, parmigiano reggiano, quince and hand-crafted pizzas – like The Mott Street with sausage, peperonata, cherry peppers, provolone and mozzarella made in house. Entrees include a Dry-Aged 40 oz Porterhouse with salsa verde, pommes pont neuf and the Duck Breast with braised red cabbage, persimmon and star anise.
The new restaurant also includes Porter Provisions, an in-house cafe and bakery that showcases Glick’s house made pastries and ice cream, as well as La Colombe coffee.
Porter is located at RiverHouse11 steps away from the NY Waterway Port Imperial Ferry Terminal and the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, on the edge of the Hudson River, providing a seamless access to visitors from Manhattan.
