You guys, PORTA JERSEY CITY IS OPEN FOR PICK UP. I AM SO INCREDIBLY PUMPED.
TODAY IS PIZZA FRIDAY IN NEW JERSEY AND PORTA JERSEY CITY IS OPEN FOR PICKUP.
I’m used to going to Porta at least once a week. When I lived downtown it got to the point of almost once a day. I freaking love Porta and I’ve been missing their food so much during this terrible time.
I’ve also been missing the environment there! Everyone is friendly and accommodating and it always smells so good and the lighting is flattering AF. I even made it official and introduced Porta to my parents. PORTA IS IN MY FAMILY.
Don’t even get me started on the Porta rooftop. It is truly my heaven. I’m missing it so much this year and I can’t wait to get back. Every spring for the last 4 years hasn’t really started until me or one of my friends text, “Porta roof?!” to each other. Then we know it’s ON. Plants, sunlight, frozen drinks, live music, crouching under the little roof over the bar during a summer rainstorm…UGH. Truly a place where dreams came true. Best days of my life.
Hopefully those days will be back SOON, BUT for now they have takeout available, starting at 3:30pm today! PIZZA FRIDAY YOU GUYS. AS IS TRADITION.
Online ordering, menu, and instructions can be found here. The instructions involve a fun and socially distant safe method of choosing a letter to stand by outside and then texting them your name and letter and they’re bring it out! I don’t know why I really enjoyed this but I did.
You can also order by phone 201-544-5199 if that’s your thing. I personally haven’t called anyone since 2003. If you order by phone the fun instructions still stand.
We were lucky and #blessed to have a special little sneak peek last night and it was so badass! I got the arugula pizza which was separated into the pizza, a container of arugula, and a container of truffle oil for me to put together when I got home. SO THE ARUGULA DIDN’T GET SOGGY, YOU GUYS. GENIUS.
I couldn’t help myself and also ordered the mozzarella and a baguette. The whole Uber ride home I kept smelling the baguette sticking out of the bag and it smelled so good and I was so hungry and frankly driven to SHEER MADNESS.
My boyfriend got the meatball pizza, I think, but I’m not sure because he devoured it. We really miss Porta!
Happy Friday you guys, and check out Porta pickup THIS VERY EVENING! I’m eating last night’s leftovers for dinner, but I plan and hope and pray to get back down there today to try out some of their to-go cocktails as well.
PIZZA SAVES. THINGS ARE LOOKING UP. PINK SKIES AHEAD.
