Trying to plan one last group get together before Labor Day weekend? We have you covered! Check out 5 of our favorite big, airy dining spaces with plenty of elbow room designed for group dining.


5) Gringo's

It's Tuesday and everyone in the group text wants to get together. Gringo's is the ultimate Instagram-worthy #tacotuesday spot, because of, well, everything! Seriously, I dare you to step food inside and not take a couple of pictures or snaps. And you haven't even ordered yet! Drinks are served in statuesque mugs that taste as good as they look. Tacos are crafted with corn tortillas, made freshly in house.


4) Porta


One last pizza dinner on the rooftop? Yes, please! Look no further than Newark Ave for the perfect Summer pizza spot. Cold drinks, a fun menu with a little bit of everything, and spacious outdoor seating make Porta a must. Sit inside if the heat is too much (or if it's raining) - there are 3 floors with different seating areas. Pies are made in a wood burning oven and there are many delicious options to choose from!


3) Talde

If Asian is more your thing - head to Talde. Choose from inside or outside seating - both are available. Try the Crispy Oyster Pad Thai to share for starters, and just keep ordering more. Their artisanal cocktails are really delicious and made to order. Go on a Thursday or weekend night if you want to have a late night with DJs and dancing, as their downstairs speakeasy, Miss Wong's, is open.


2) South House

In the mood to relax and eat great? Definitely come here for a low key atmosphere. Food is barbecue Southern comfort, so it's best to order a bunch of dishes and split. Head downstairs to the Rec Room for a friendly round darts, shuffleboard, or foosball competition.


1) The Lutze Biergarten

Feel like drinking and taking pics of the awesome views? Check out The Lutze, JC's newest outdoor beer garden conveniently located on the waterfront. Sit on the grass, bring the dogs (yes!), and soak up the atmosphere. On the weekends, food vendors are serving up tasty dishes with an international flair.
