To tuxedoed people, velvet ropes are ordinary white picket fences and champagne fountains are lawn sprinklers. Get a taste of the high life with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of eclectic, upscale fare and creative drinks from LITM in Jersey City, a half-block from the Grove Street PATH station.
LITM, an acronym for "love is the message," houses a triple threat of restaurant, lounge, and gallery in its chic, 1,800-square-foot storefront. Creative flavors and contemporary presentation upscaleize its bar classics and gourmetize its entrees. House-made preparations, such as hand-rolled gnocchi with basil pesto ($15) and the hand-pounded veggie burger ($14), are abundant. Reignite the great atmosphere-versus-hydrosphere debate with citrusy chicken paillard ($18) or tea-crusted tilapia ($23). Sophisticated desserts, such as the Belgium chocolate cake ($8), assist adults in reliving the wildest sugar-rush of their youth.
If an evening of eats and arts parches the palate, LITM's extensive drink list can provide a window of whistle-wetting opportunity. Lounge on mid-century modular furniture with a glass of wine or an intoxicating art cocktail, inspired by maestros such as Michelangelo (Godiva, amaretto, and Irish cream, $10) and Frida Kahlo (Partida Blanco tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and hibiscus syrup, $16). With 18-foot ceilings and gleaming white décor, LITM makes a stylish setting for film screenings or the Friday-night beats of DJ Hells Yeah. Pair the rhythms with a selection from the worldly beer list for a memorable evening of solo hokey-pokeying.
