There's lots of new places to eat after this past month of openings! And a place to work it all off. Grab a cup of coffee at Sober Shot and start making your way through this list!

The Franklin

This cozy BYOB Italian spot just opened up in the Heights. They have a quite a diverse menu with a lot of seafood and meat, but also a great pasta and risotto selection. Decorated with Edison bulbs handing from ropes and dark denim-hued walls, the space is very intimate and great for date night or a girls night out. 159 New York Ave.

Tony Boloney's

Finally, you can get the infamous taco taco taco pizza right here in Chilltown. The much-anticipated opening of Tony Boloney's happened this past month and we're all a lot happier because of it. Their pizzas and subs are pretty epic—and have a tendency to go viral—so definitely get your carb fix here! 363 Grove St.

Sober Shot

Jersey City's newest coffee shop is bringing a new caffeine concept to town. While they have your classic hot or iced variations on coffee, they also have a creative menu of sparkling teas and espressos and "Blue Surge" drinks with butterfly pea powder like the Sexy Matcha shown above. 514 Jersey Ave.

Tacos Victoria

The beloved taco truck formerly called Sol Azteca has opened a brick-and-mortar in the former Mana Restaurant location. They offer a wide range of Mexican food to accompany whatever BYOB drinks you're bringing. The prices are super affordable, too! 324 ½ 7th St.

Core Indoor Cycling

Trying to work off that slice of Tony Boloney's taco pizza? Core Indoor Cycling is your spot. It's not your average cycling studio—they have RealRyder bikes that move side-to-side, creating an unstable environment, requiring you to engage your core! There's only 16 bikes per class, so no, you aren't smushed in like a sardine, but yes, you will probably want to book early so they don't fill up! 189 Brunswick St.
