Description: Opened in 2002, this local favorite has become an institution. Light Horse Tavern has a new young chef, Carlos Ortega that brings a new exciting vision to the Jersey City culinary scene. The chef's philosophy is to source out seasonal ingredients and to preserve the integrity of the product when cooking.
The seasonal menu always includes a variety of fresh oysters and clams, as well as lighter fare such as the grilled octopus salad, or heartier favorites such as the organic ale braised rabbit with fresh garganelli pasta and green olives.
Whether settling in at the bar for a pint or indulging in the spectacular cuisine, you are sure to become addicted to the experience. Visit any day for lunch, weekend days for brunch, and always for exquisite food, people watching and pristine outdoor seating.
