Blue Eyes Cafe
Blue Eyes Cafe in Hoboken, NJ
An Italian restaurant with unobstructed views of the Hudson River and NYC skyline opens this Sunday, April 19, 2015.
Welcome Blue Eyes Cafe to the Hoboken waterfront!
“Blue Eyes Restaurant is an Italian Eatery & Cafe boasting a wood burning oven that sits on the Hoboken waterfront with gorgeous views. We offer wood-fired pizzas, pasta, appetizers, paninis, desserts, gelato & assorted coffees – along with wine and beer. In the Spring and Summer months we will have outdoor seating with beautiful views of the water, Freedom Tower and the soccer fields.”
We’ll be sure to check them out after they’ve been able to work out their opening day jitters!
Description: Italian Restaurant, etc.
Address: 525 Sinatra Drive, Hoboken, New Jersey 07030 (5th & Sinatra)
Blue Eyes Cafe @ Sinatra Park (the outlook is?)
If they bring the same tasty food and service to this location – it should do very well.
However, we find the name to be a bit creepy. I mean a body part? I never heard of that! Not very appetizing! Have you been to a “Soft Skin Grill?” Or a “Left Thumb Trattoria?”
Plus – the glomming of Sinatra’s name needs to be retired. He himself said he hated Hoboken and couldn’t wait to get the hell out. Why would everyone still honor the guy? I mean he had a classic voice – but “adopt” another honorary musician who didn’t shit on Hoboken!
Di Palma family (Queen Margherita) to open at Sinatra Park
The Sinatra Park Cafe structure has been an odd conundrum for a long time. In what could be the nicest spot along the waterfront in Hoboken, somehow the city managed to keep it unoccupied for much of the last decade. Crepe Grill tried to make it work, but after the pier collapse, the city basically turned their back on them. But we have a new entity who wants to step up to the plate to breathe some life into this area.
Queen Margherita (Pasquale & Nicola Di Palma), have a restaurant and bakery in Nutley, NJ along with a Pizza parlor in Lyndhurst. They are wishing to bring a version of their well-received restaurant businesses to this spot. We’re unsure of what the name will be – but if it’s anything like their other spots – Hoboken will be in for a treat.
Let’s just hope the city doesn’t screw up like like their track-record demonstrates. While we’d prefer a Hoboken Italian business to try their luck here, someone is better than no one, right?
