The Kitchen at Grove Station Closes It Doors (temporarily)| Jersey City

Chef David Viana announced that the much heralded “Kitchen at Grove Station” in Jersey City is closed. The announcement was made on Facebook on December 26. The Kitchen had previously announced that they would be closed 24 Dec to 30 Dec for emergency repairs. With Viana’s announcement it appears that the owners of the space will reopen as a reimagined experience with a new cast.

The Kitchen embodied the New American esthetic: rustic farmhouse tables and soft velvet booths filled a space where the hard lines of modern windows and shelves serves as the bones of the space. It was that perfect combination of the known and comfortable presented within the cutting edge. That perfect combination of the unique and classic carried over to the menu as well.

On January 12th, look for Viana to appear at the much loved Terre a Terre in Carlstadt. Reservations are still available for the “Art Of Local Cuisine Collaboration Dinner.” Chef Viana is one of those rare chefs whose passion for the plate is greater than his quest for fame, and that’s why culinary enthusiasts know that as the door in Jersey City closed, several more will open in the New Year for Viana. We can’t wait to see what 2016 brings!

  1. We heard they are just taking a break until mid January


  2. The Kitchen at Grove Station / Waterfront Management Systems has not paid local farm, Urbana Greens, for bills dating back to November 2015. After countless attempts over many months Urbana Greens feels there is no other option but to publicly air grievances. Urbana Greens is a start up urban agriculture company that strives to improve local food systems. Please let The Kitchen at Grove Station / Waterfront Management Systems know that local farms are important and should be supported!!


  3. Well. This is upsetting. I purchased a gift card there for a couple & it closed soon after. From what I’m reading, it looks like it will never reopen 😦
