The February issue of New Jersey Monthly names Battello in Jersey City one of the 20 Best New Restaurants in New Jersey.

Here’s what they have to say:

On the Hudson River, its tall windows facing the towers of Lower Manhattan, with a liquor license, 175 seats and rooms for private parties, Battello is the big stage chef Ryan DePersio has long craved. He still considers Fascino, his family’s 11-year-old Montclair BYO, “my baby.” But at Battello, DePersio’s eclectic “Italian without borders” cooking earns the spotlight, especially the bold seafood dishes, like pignoli-crusted halibut braised in a pancetta broth with vegetables or skate wing in a rice crust with fava bean risotto. 502 Washington Boulevard; 201-798-1798.
