It appears that a Bareburger location will in fact be coming to Downtown Jersey City.
Signage has been posted outside 143 Newark Avenue promoting that the building will become home to the latest outpost of the Queens-based chain, according to the Historic Downtown Special Improvement District.
The signs say that the restaurant will offer burgers, shakes, salads, sauces, cocktails, beer, and wine, and that the location will be open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and until 10:00 p.m. the rest of the week.
Jersey Digs first reported back in September that a Bareburger location could come to 143 Newark Avenue. At the time, BB Jersey City, LLC was seeking approval from the Jersey City Board of Alcoholic Beverage Control to transfer a pocket Mack-Cali liquor license to the address in question.
Bareburger has not responded to requests for comment about the upcoming Jersey City location. There are already eight other Bareburger restaurants in North Jersey, including one in Hoboken and another in Edgewater.
