V-Yan Hot Pot & BBQ: Mouthwatering Food Options

PARSIPPANY — If you were a Mongolian horseman 800-900 years ago, under the tutelage of Genghis Khan, cold, and hungry, you probably used your ornate iron and leather hardened helmet as a vessel to simmer some broth over an open fire, then threw in some chunks of meat, probably mutton or horse, to get fortified so you were ready to attack your next village. The origins of Hot Pot can be traced back to those roots and have since subsequently spread throughout China. In fact, if you happen to be walking down a street in some cities in China, or throughout Asia, you may find Hot Pot eateries as popular as our own fast-food burger joints.

Inside Porto Leggero’s post-pandemic makeover

The pandemic changed the way restaurants operate. For Jersey City’s Porto Leggero, it also changed the way it looks. The Italian restaurant, located at 185 Hudson, has emerged from the pandemic with a new bar, dining room, and lounge. The makeover comes courtesy of New York-based design firm TPG Architecture, which was enlisted to re-imagine the restaurant’s interior. Unfortunately, after the design process was completed, the restaurant industry came to a screeching halt as COVID-19 restrictions shut down much of the state.

Instead, customers had to offer to barter something with the chef, a process he detailed for La Cucina Italiana this spring.
