One of Hudson County’s largest retail complexes is slated to welcome a plethora of new eateries over the coming months as major brands including Shake Shack, Dave’s Hot Chicken, and more are coming to Secaucus.

Construction at several storefronts is underway at 700 Plaza Drive inside Harmon Meadow Plaza. The mostly outdoor shopping center signed a total of seven lease agreements earlier this year including a 3,200-square-foot deal for Shake Shack.

That brand, founded in 2004 in New York City’s Madison Square Park, offers traditional burgers, a ‘Shroom burger variety, hot dogs, and fried chicken sandwiches alongside crinkle-cut fries and a rotating selection of milkshakes. Their Garden State presence grew earlier this year with the opening of a drive-thru location in North Brunswick.

Elsewhere in Harmon Meadow Plaza, Dave’s’ Hot Chicken will be launching soon inside a 2,205-square-foot storefront. The Los Angeles-based brand opened their first Garden State outpost in Wayne two years ago and their Nashville-style hot chicken, housemade “kale slaw,” creamy mac & cheese, and cheese fries won over diners in a big way.

Maryland-based Cava has begun work on their 3,000 square foot space, which will focus on Mediterranean cuisine and serve a variety of modern, customizable dishes. Diners at Cava can choose from 50 fresh and scratch-made ingredients at the restaurant, which already has an outpost in Exchange Place along the Hudson River waterfront.

Speaking of Jersey City, perhaps one of their best-kept secrets is also heading to Secaucus. KPOT Korean BBQ & Hot Pot signed a lease for 8,870 square feet of space in Harmon Meadow and will be bringing their hands-on, all-you-can-eat experience to the complex.

KPOT offers a choice of a variety of broth flavors for diners alongside Kobe beef, sliced chicken, veggies, seafood, tofu, and more.

Other restaurants coming to the Secaucus facility include a 1,354-square-foot TSAoCAA, a bubble tea spot that recently opened in Jersey City. Another business named Haute Dolce Crepes leased 963 square feet at the complex.

The upcoming restaurants will be joining other high-profile eateries that include New York City’s Carnagie Diner & Café, which opened inside Harmon Meadow Plaza back in 2022.
