My wife and I try to go to Casa Dante every time we're back in the New York area. Great Italian food (especially the filet of sole) and ambience. Looks like a dump on the outside, but it's wonderful inside - waiters dressed in tuxes. Even for a tourist it's not that hard to find. Take the tube (PATH for you younger folks) from 33rd st. on the west side of NYC and get off at the Journal Square station in Jersey City (less that half an hour). It's about a four or five block walk in a decent part of JC from Journal Square to Newark Ave, where Casa Dante is located. At lunch time it's a lawyer's hangout, since the county courthouse is only a short distance away. After your meal, stop at St. John's R.C. Church nearby to ask forgiveness for eating too much and to marvel at the beautiful tile work in the church.
