Hot potato, the earliest dish designed to be passed, is nearly extinct due to the constant ravages of grade schoolers. Today's Groupon revives shifting sustenance: for $15, you get $30 worth of small plates and drinks at Bar Majestic in Jersey City.
At Bar Majestic, live music can often be heard bouncing off the backdrop of darkly lit wood, shimmery walls, and wine racks so well stocked the place resembles a chateau wine cellar in the heart of Spain's countryside. Small, sharable portions of fresh tapas dance across tables and decorate the menu. Nibble decadent meats and cheeses, or bite bruschette such as spinach pesto, prosciutto, or mushroom tapenade ($3 each, $7 for three, $12 for five). Piping hot paninis pummel stubborn stomachs with comestibles including turkey breast, brie, romaine, and aioli ($8) or eggplant, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and balsamic ($9).
Bar Majestic offers spacious seating in a relaxing lounge area as well as outdoor seating for those who suffer from star-gazing fever. The bar itself offers an impressive wine list from all over the orb on which we live. Creative cocktails have delicious names such as the Rusty Nail, Spring Fling, and William Howard Taft's New Toupee.
