The colorful name of Jersey City No range given will trade their wheels for downtown storefront space after local authorities approve their plans.

At their March 24 meeting, the Jersey City Zoning Board approved a request to convert space at 115 Brunswick Street into a Category 2 restaurant. The property, adjacent to the recently opened Into The Void Coffee & Antiques, will welcome No Forks Given after a renovation and the installation of a hood.

No Forks Given is owned by chef Wyatt Harte and has been in business as a food truck for almost five years. Their upcoming brick-and-mortar restaurant is designed to be a quick take-out spot serving a quieter residential block, with delivery available across all platforms.

“We think the neighborhood is a bit lacking in food and want to add some unique and tasty flavors to The Village’s vibrant community,” Harte told Jersey Digs. “We are excited to expand our business into this area and continue to grow from there.”

The menu at No Forks Given blends a variety of influences, including Korean and Asian flavors, Peruvian cuisine, and American comfort food. Cheesesteak tacos, a Peruvian fried chicken sandwich, and Togarashi fries with sriracha mayonnaise, togarashi spices, sesame seeds, and scallions are just a few of the unique dishes found at the restaurant.

“Having worked in the culinary world for over a decade, I’m excited for this next chapter of No Forks Given and see it as a stepping stone,” says Harte. While he wasn’t quite ready to reveal any new dishes that could grace the brick-and-mortar menu, he assures that new concoctions are in the works.

No Forks Given hopes to continue to operate its food truck locally even after it opens its storefront, but currently does not have a timeline for its arrival on Brunswick Street. Once launched, they estimate their restaurant hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
