You will know the difference when u walk into a Portuguese restaurant such as Iberia opposed to a Brazilian joint like La Brasilia. BTW, best Dominican food is in North Newark. A few spots.
SWEEEET!!!!! I really almost moved into the Ironbound just because of all the restaurants. I only ate at a few...but I was torn. But ultimately I've decided against it just because I want a change of scenery from Newark after spending the better part of my day in the law school I think I'll just want to get away.
Those new buildings are not as expensive as I thought they would be. If they were in JC they'd probably be almost twice what they are in Newark. I also considered some of those new houses popping up. But then I went to JC and discovered all those brownstones and thought I could have the best of both worlds. Fairly affordable housing close to Newark and NYC and in a great neighborhood. I like the idea of being able to go and walk around downtown JC--that didn't really seem like an option if I lived in Newark. I feel like I'd be more limited. But I'll definitely be in the Ironbound for dinner!!!
addendum do you live in Newark for school now? are you going to rutgers for law school?
I almost wish RU and SHU swapped places. Across from Don Pepe = awesome.
I can't wait to hit up the Brazilian restaurants in Ironbound. We have a few Brazilian BBQ spots here in Los Angeles and they're AMAZING. Are there going to be "bar review" (bar-hopping) socials with SHU Law students? If so, do the law students go bar-hopping in Jersey or in NYC?
The only reason I ask is because many of my friends are current law students here in Los Angeles and they have bar-hopping mixers/socials where they invite law students from UCLA, USC, Loyola, and Pepperdine. I actually attended one of the "bar reviews" and it was a lot of fun.
