Ainsworth Hoboken

Haven’t had a chance to sample the offerings at The Ainsworth in Hoboken, but we did a radio show there recently – and have to say it’s a fine-looking establishment (even better than when it was Little Town).

We’ve heard good things from experienced restaurant-hoppers – and can’t wait to give it a shot.

But not many places in Hoboken have this kind of “NYC” ambiance. Sure, “service” typically makes an impact – so we’ll see how it goes once we sample their food.

Take a look at these photos of the interior. Not bad at all!

Ainsworth gets signage in Hoboken

3/31/2015 Update:

For what it’s “worth,” (had to say that) The Ainsworth had their exterior signage completed the other day.

Who could refuse to eat there when they have the perfect phrase to make you hungry? “Burgers – Steaks – Cocktails.” Yes, please!

Ainsworth coming to Hoboken, NJ in March 2015

1/12/2015 Update:

Wow, some restaurateurs are really mixing things up here in Hoboken. Hot on the heels of Village Pourhouse closing (to change with the neighborhood) to become “Little Town Social,” you had to wonder what was happening with the Little Town New Jersey along the waterfront at 310 Sinatra Drive. Well, that is becoming Ainsworth this spring!

Little Town NJ to reopen as Ainsworth Hoboken this spring

Popular neighborhood bar, restaurant and brew house, Little Town New Jersey, located at 310 Sinatra Drive, will close its doors for renovation. Little Town will move to another location a few blocks away and the current waterfront space will reopen as the Hoboken outpost of upscale steak, burger and sports gastropub, The Ainsworth.

Restauranteurs and stars of Bravo’s Manzo’d with Children, Albie and Chris Manzo along with Michael Sinensky [Little Town, Hudson Terrace, Sidebar, Village Pourhouse] have partnered with Paige Hospitality Group [Ainsworth, The Chester, 121 Fulton Street] to open Ainsworth Hoboken in early March. The Ainsworth prides itself on being a one-stop shop for brunch, lunch, dinner, cocktails and sports viewing. The Ainsworth Hoboken will be its fourth location with others in Manhattan [Chelsea and Gramercy] and Las Vegas.

“We are thrilled to partner with Paige Hospitality Group and bring one of the best and most established upscale steak, burger, and sports gastropub brands in the country to the waterfront space in Hoboken,” says Albie Manzo. “We look forward to announcing the next evolution of the Little Town brand in a vibrant and exciting part of town,” Chris adds.

Let’s hope they work out their kinks…

2.5 hours for lunch is absurd…especially with two babies under the age of 1. Sunday afternoon and the restaurant wasn’t packed. Took about 20-25 minutes to get our drinks (2 soft drinks, a beer and a mimosa) since the bar was backed up.

Food took forever because the kitchen was backed up. 4 out of 7 meals were freezing cold, one was completely wrong and the other two were decent.

Will be awhile before I go back!

Little Town was terrible, hopefully they have nothing (substantively) to do with the new restaurant.

We’ve been to one in the city, and it’s very nice. The Little Town spot seems to be a perfect fit for this kind of loungy sports venue.
