Where to Eat and Drink in Downtown Jersey City!

Sofrito Lovers,

Jersey City has become another hidden underrated food Mecca.  When I read the first paragraph of the article below, I almost nodded my head off in agreement, the food scene in Jersey City has become fierce as fuck!

Renatos and The Archer (both mentioned in the article) are amazing places to eat!  If the other spots mentioned are as cool, then I'm going to get my ass to Jersey City as much as possible.  The growing diversity and quality of the cuisine is truly exciting; Jersey City is where it's at!

The article below lists 25 places for NYC foodies to explore!  Choose one and have an awesome time!  Check them out and go taste for yourself!  ¡Buen Provecho!

Here now, a guide to the best of them, including old-school Italian, James Beard-nominated pizza, Asian fusion from a celebrity chef, and several speakeasies.

A Spoonful of Sofrito: Museum of Food and Drink!

A Spoonful of Sofrito: A pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.

MOFAD: Museum of Food and Drink!

Sofrito Lovers,

Did you know that there was a museum dedicated to food and drink?  Yeah, neither did I! How incredible is that?  A museum dedicated to the art, science, culture, history, and production of food and drink- this is so cool!

This weekend, while I was searching the 'net, I discovered MOFAD's website and it threw me for a loop!  How could there be a foodie museum and I know nothing about it?  I poured through the 'site and fell in love!

The calendar of events is chock full of workshops, lectures, cooking demonstrations, art exhibits, and a lot more.  If you're like me, a foodie and museum nut, then this place is heaven!  I can't wait to go to their next CHOW, their monthly snack and chat about Chinese food and restaurants.

Check out the museum's Mission statement below and their website for more information! Go SEE AND TASTE for yourself!  ¡Buen Provecho!

MOFAD: Museum of Food and Drink

The Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) is a nonprofit dedicated to advancing public understanding of the culture, history, science, production, and commerce of food and drink.

MOFAD Lab is the museum's inaugural design studio and gallery space located in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In this space, MOFAD creates exhibits and hosts an array of public programs, including cooking classes, guided tastings, hands-on workshops, science demonstrations, discussions, and seminars. Chow: Making the Chinese American Restaurant is currently on show at MOFAD Lab.

Supported by a diverse community of donors, volunteers, and partners, MOFAD is working toward building the world's first large-scale museum with exhibits you can eat. This global center for learning will feature multiple exhibition galleries, program and workshop space, a garden, café, and more.
