A fresh Vietnamese eatery called Quick Pho is officially in the cards as approvals have been granted to revamp a storefront situated in what is almost the exact geographic center of Jersey City.
During their October 11 meeting, Jersey City’s planning board signed off on an application to bring Quick Pho to 126 Baldwin Avenue. The property owner had been seeking a use change from a café-restaurant Category two to a restaurant Category two to facilitate the move, which can now move ahead following the board’s green light.
Quick Pho will sport a 470-square-foot commercial kitchen but will lack seating areas, putting their takeout and delivery focus front and center. Not much else is known about the restaurant for now, as they don’t appear to have established any online presence or phone number just yet.
126 Baldwin Avenue is situated about halfway between Journal Square and McGinley Square in a quieter section of Jersey City. But despite the calmer vibe, restaurants like Flip Sigi, Café Alyce, and Rosita’s Yah have all opened within a few blocks of the future Quick Pho in recent years.
