One of the most prominent waterfront spaces in Jersey City has welcomed a new dining concept as Maddy Rose has launched inside the Liberty House venue.
Owners Landmark Hospitality recently unveiled their newest destination, the name of which is inspired by co-founders Frank and Jeanne Cretella’s daughter Maddy. The revamped restaurant and bar offers elevated coastal cuisine and craft beverages in a space surrounded by gardens and the landscape of Liberty State Park.
The menu, curated by Chef Anthony Bucco features seasonal small plates, shareable dishes, and specialty tableside options. The Maddy Rose experience includes a raw bar with East and West Coast oysters, jumbo shrimp cocktail, snackable vegetable-forward plates, and a selection of steaks and seafood dishes.
“Liberty House has been Landmark’s flagship property for over 20 years and we wanted to refresh the space with an exciting look and feel for Maddy Rose,” said Maddy Cretella, Director of Engagement and Marketing at Landmark Hospitality. “Our Mediterranean-inspired concept offers a fresh take on coastal Greek and Italian cuisine paired with delicious craft cocktail options in a light and airy atmosphere.”
Highlights from the menu include the Maddy Rose Tower, which includes East Coast oysters, West Coast oysters, clams, shrimp, tuna crudo, and crab ceviche. Lighter fare includes their balsamic heirloom tomatoes with compressed watermelon and bleu cheese or heartier dishes like a 12 oz. Ribeye with pomme frites or their angry “Two Toll” Lobster.
The restaurant includes indoor dining areas plus an upstairs patio area complete with cabanas. Maddy Rose is currently hosting live music from Thursday through Sunday during brunch services and will be rolling out additional programming soon.

Maddy Rose is the second Landmark Hospitality restaurant to revamp and re-brand in Jersey City this year. The group’s Port Liberte space re-launched as an Italian steakhouse experience called Felina Steak earlier this summer.
