Harrison’s Dining Hot Spots

It’s a well-worn cliché to say a neighborhood “has it all,” but when it comes to Harrison’s Riverbend District, you may find yourself thinking along those lines, especially when it’s time to eat. Fortunate residents of the new luxury Harrison apartments at Steel Works will find no shortage of stellar local restaurants to choose from.


TaKorea  |  805 Frank E. Rodgers Boulevard

It’s not easy to blend two distinct culinary stylings into one cohesive and successful menu, but the Mexican-influenced Korean BBQ restaurant TaKorea makes it look easy.  Their tacos are well known throughout the area, as are their quesadillas and indulgent cheese fries.  Come for the fusion tacos, stay for the flavorful margaritas.

Tops Diner |  500 Passaic Avenue

Tops is pretty much a New Jersey institution at this point; they’ve been churning out delicious fare for 45 years and counting.  It’s diner food executed to perfection.  Their handcrafted burgers are made from a combination of brisket, short rib and chuck meat; good luck finding that level of flavor at the ubiquitous fast-food burger joint. If burgers aren’t on the cards tonight, never fear; Tops is a diner, after all! It just happens to be an extraordinary one.

Nino’s | 42 Bergen Street

Nino’s is a classic, low-key pizza joint, and they’ve become Neapolitan masters over the last three decades. Their classic pie is a can’t miss selection, their Sicilian slices are wonderful, and their pasta and salads are fresh and flavorful.  Compliment their perfectly-charred, bubbling ‘za with their sauteed broccoli rabe and their cheese calzones.


Adega Grill  |  130 Ferry Street

“Adega” means wine cellar in Portuguese, and it’s immediately apparent why they chose the moniker. Their wine list is simply massive, featuring hundreds of hand-selected bottles that are sure to satisfy any palette. Adega has an old-world aesthetic, punctuated by stone fireplaces, so it’s the perfect cozy spot for comfort food. Be sure to try their grilled prawns.


Forno’s | 47 Ferry Street

Forno’s is one of the best Spanish restaurants in the region. If that wasn’t enough of a reason to drop by, their enormous, meticulously-selected wine list features over 450 bottles, and their seafood is ridiculously fresh and delectable.  The paella valenciana is a sublime creation of chicken, sausage, and shellfish, but the real star of the show might be the camarones fritos (fried shrimp in a savory garlic sauce). For a nice, classy evening out, you can’t go wrong with Forno’s.

This list only scratches the surface of the Riverbend District’s myriad dining options. We’d be remiss not to mention Bello’s, which is a great place to drop in, have a pint, and grab a burger, Catas, which is a stellar Spanish-American eatery, and the Portuguese BBQ joint Picnic. If you find yourself dreaming of Harrison’s culinary delights, be sure to check out the brand-new apartments at Steel Works!
