Later this year Americana Hospitality Group will open a new casual dining restaurant at 70 Town Square Place, overlooking Town Square. The new 8,000-square foot, 280-seat Skylark on the Hudson restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Among its bountiful offerings will be its famous small batch fluffy pancakes, hand formed Steak House Burger, and delectable Crab and Avocado Stack. New dishes like mouth-watering Wood Grilled Rib-Eye and Barolo Braised Short Ribs and freshly baked artisanal bread also will be on the menu.
Open from 7am to 1am Monday through Sunday, the restaurant will have a full bar, including a cruvinet, a counter overlooking Town Square, and a designated take-out area to meet the demands of the busy lifestyles of local residents. Diners also will be able to order online and from smart phones. The lounge area will provide a convenient location for business cocktail parties or family events. Owner Constantine Katsifis says, “Jersey City – and Newport particularly – are great areas offering excitement and growth. We want to be part of that.”
Skylark on the Hudson is an extension of Mr. Katsifis’ Americana Hospitality Group based in Central Jersey. Skylark in Edison received a “Don’t Miss” Rating from the New York Times and a 4-Star rating from the Star Ledger. Commenting about his goals for the restaurant’s soon to be patrons, Mr. Katsifis says, “We are not casual about casual dining. We say ‘Our Effort is Our Distinction’ and believe guests will recognize our efforts towards high quality dishes at a great value that are served for breakfast, lunch and dinner.”
