A Jersey City eatery is up for a Beard Award for culinary excellence

Thirty Acres, located on Jersey Avenue has been nominated for a Beard Award, for best new restaurant. The Beard Awards honor restaurants, chefs, service and more, and the foundation also honors food writers.

How cool is this? Johnny has said it for years, Jersey City has one of the most underrated food scenes around. Here is further proof of that. How about we hear from the chef and owner about what the nomination means:

Alex Pemoulié, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Kevin, said they are "psyched" to represent Jersey City on a national level.

"We are extremely proud, excited and humbled to be on a list with so many amazing restaurants from across the country," Pemoulié said.

Here's hoping for a Jersey City victory by way of Thirty Acres.
