As a native and resident of Jersey City I have seen the city change drastically in the past 20 years or so. The Downtown area of the city has gone through a resurgence some would call gentrification, but either way there has been tremendous change.
During the Covid-19 pandemic a new restaurant has emerged. Gaia & Loki located on Grove Street (not too far from the Path Station) established itself as a quality vegan restaurant with the concern for healthier dining options.
Upon entering you'll notice the beautiful decor of blue and white. Everything from the celing, bar, and flooring all seem to be new or at least renovated from whatever occupied the space previously.
My family and I decided to visit on a rainy day when businesses are typically slow. It gave us an opportunity to see the staff work on some things in their down time like take photos for social media, etc.
I had a small chat with the owner and look forward to connecting with him more in the future to learn about the business and his background.
The menu is tidy yet comprehensive. There doesn't seem to be a specific cultural cuisine in mind but it sort of reflects the melting pot of Jersey City and specifically the Downtown area.
They have everything from burgers, sandwiches, pasta, Asian, and more.
The vegan cheeseburger was amazing.
We order a few appetizers and main courses. At first bite you can taste the quality preparation. Everything was absolutely delicious. We look forward to returning for a another visit and sampling more.
