Mexican-style restaurant signs for 8K sq. ft. at Jersey City’s Haus25 tower

A full-service restaurant has leased 8,000 square feet at Haus25 in Jersey City, according to real estate firm Pierson Commercial.

Meximodo – Cocina Mexicana & Tequila Bar is a new culinary experience rooted in classic techniques with a unique twist on bold flavors, according to a news release. It now comes to the neighborhood anchor in the Paulus Hook/Exchange Place crossroads area, Pierson said.

A Pierson Commercial team of Robert Mackowski and Ryan Starkman arranged the lease between landlord Veris Residential Inc. and the tenant.

“Haus25, with its sleek architecture and 37,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space, is a trophy-quality asset with highly desirable market coordinates and demographics that appeal to tenants seeking entry into — or an expansion within — the Hudson Gold Coast region in general, and Jersey City, specifically,” Mackowski said in a prepared statement.

Meximodo, which is opening a flagship location in Metuchen this summer, is part of Le Malt Hospitality Group. The Jersey City location is expected to open in summer 2024.

The restaurant will include indoor and outdoor dining space, as well as a bar featuring tequila selections.

“As part of its business strategy, Le Malt was seeking to establish a high-profile Jersey City presence, and Haus25, as one of the city’s Top 5 tallest landmark mixed-use properties, offered the ideal opportunity to do so,” Starkman said in a statement.

Haus25 is located at 25 Christopher Columbus Drive, and measures 56 stories and 750 residential units. It completed lease-up of the residential space in February.
