JERSEY CITY, NJ — Located in the heart of Jersey City’s Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood, Harry’s Daughter is where cultures collide.
The restaurant offers a unique blend of Caribbean home cooking with a splash of Irish charm.
Ria Ramkissoon opened the restaurant with her partner Alasdair Cotter in 2018 with a Trinidadian-inspired menu, but in the face of the pandemic, the pair expanded their selection.
The menu now reflects a fusion of their backgrounds: Ramkisson is from Trinidad and Cotter is Irish.
“We decided we were going to give them some variety so we started putting out some new dishes, the fish and chips which was a huge hit and still is and then we started doing shepherd’s pie,” Cotter told PIX11.
Their takeout and delivery menu caps every meal at just $10.
From the food to carry out drinks, the restaurant quickly adapted to the times.
Their carry out rum punch has become a cult classic in the neighborhood and beyond.
“People are coming from an hour away to pick it up,” Ramkissoon said. “The rum punch is keeping us afloat, we even put it on tap.”
The restaurant is now gearing up to reopen for outdoor dining next week.
If their decor doesn’t transport you, the menu will.
Harry‘s Daughter is located at:
339 Communipaw Ave
Jersey City, New Jersey 07304
They’re open every day for takeout and delivery starting at 2 p.m.
