Spice It Up: Explore Jamestown restaurants
- Restaurant List
Situated in the heart of downtown Jamestown, NY, Pearl City Hops is a gastro-inspired restaurant and tavern featuring local brewery creations and select regional fare. Our name pays homage to Jamestown’s rich history in the glass manufacturing industry. During the clearing of the land for agricultural and small industrial purposes, the abundant forests were utilized virtually as a cash crop employer.
Hardwood was too heavy to float downstream and too expensive to transport overland to market. It was burned and the ash leeched to obtain lye and pearl ash, an important component in the manufacture of glass products. By the mid-1820’s, the area became one of the largest centers in North America for the production of pearlash. As a result of this distinction, Jamestown became known as the “The Pearl City.”More
