New to entice your palette in Hoboken is Panello Italian Restaurant (specializing in Brick oven pizza). They’re located at the Monroe Center (720 Monroe Street – closer to 8th Street).
Panello opens to positive reviews in Hoboken
Opening just this week – they have a limited menu for their soft opening (see below) – with personal pizzas (9″ starting at $10) and antipasto, along with a Nutella dessert and beverages. The restaurant is BYOB.
Nearby residents and tenants of the Monroe Center are thrilled – one, because the selection of halfway-decent food is far and few between. So anything that isn’t poisonous is a relief. And two – apparently, the pizza is scoring HUGE marks with those who’ve tried it so far (i.e. “best in Hoboken”). I met the dedicated “fresh mozzarella” chef yesterday – and he was proud and confident of the delicacy he makes on a daily basis.
The restaurant has an occupancy of 49 patrons, and is open six days a week (closed Mondays). The design is exposed brick and “industrial” like duct work. Had a very warm and comfortable feel.
Take a look at their initial menu below – and give them a whirl this weekend. This area of town isn’t swarming with as many stumbling, shouting drunks as other areas of town – but be sure not to leave any devices like GPS units on your dash. You might be filling out insurance forms instead of munching on dessert.
