JCT Kitchen was the perfect venue for my wedding. We chose it because we already loved the restaurant. The benefits of getting married in a restaurant you love are many: you already know the food will be great, and you are familiar with the decor and vibe. The space is gorgeous, and the staff is incredibly professional. Our first impression of the staff was at our tasting, which blew us away. The staff treated us so well, and we had such a hard time narrowing down our choices. The wine list has some pretty great depth, and the beer list featured a ton of local brews. I really appreciated the variety of packages and pricing options.Sent on 05/11/2014
The day of went off just as smoothly as the tasting. The food was incredible; it is sophisticated, yet comforting. Our guests raved about all of the dishes, especially the grits! As a Southern expat currently living in Jersey City, I was thrilled to have both boiled peanuts and fried chicken at my wedding. The drinks were exceedingly popular too; the JC-tea was a favorite! Valerie and Miranda were both incredibly sweet and easy to work with. I honestly couldn't imagine a more perfect place for my wedding. I highly recommend JCT for any special event.
