A restaurant near Bryant Park in Manhattan has officially crossed the Hudson River as Peppercorn Station has soft opened their Jersey City location.
Signage has gone up at 120 Morgan Street heralding the arrival of the Szechuan-style restaurant that is apparently not named Wu Tong (our sincerest apologies). The eatery is expanding to Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District just a year after opening their initial spot in Manhattan on 39th Street.
The restaurant touts their traditional recipes and a menu that features both classic dishes “as well as plates reimagined to sparkle the best of New York in Szechuan food.” Their website says their menu is curated by a head chef with 50+ years in Chinese cuisine with ingredients and spices that are freshly sourced from local markets.
Peppercorn Station boasts a pretty epic 20-page menu that includes a wide variety of small and large plates, rice dishes, noodle combinations, and soups. Among the diverse offerings include beef tripe and duck blood tofu, crab meat sauce, braised trotter with black bean, or spicy pork intestine.
The interior of the restaurant is industrial-inspired to be modern and sleek and while an official full opening date has not been announced, Peppercorn Station’s Jersey City hours now run from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, with extra service until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. They can be followed on Instagram at the handle @peppercornstation.ny.
Peppercorn Station is situated within the Provost Square complex, which is seeing retail spaces that have sat vacant for years finally come to life. The development is slated to welcome a Pizza Twist outpost and Rui Tea in the coming months, while an outpost of NYC’s Tacombi and DaiDiLao Hot Pot are opening across the street at Warren at Bay.
