Now we can put a name to a face at this 14th & Washington restaurant: Bin 14 Trattoria Wine Bar.

Progress being made uptown…

5/14/2008 Update:

The old Kelly’s Pub, which has been defunct for quite a while, slowly progresses along. Apparently part-owned by Anthony David’s.

I popped in to see how things were going last week. When do you expect to be open? “At least 2-3 months.” Do you have a name yet? “No.”

1/12/2007 Update:

glasswine.jpgOK, the last rumor that the Basement Bar (doomed – for now) was going to become a wine bar was a little off (it’s just a regular bar + extensive martini menu). But here’s another one for you.

It seems as if the old dusty Kelly’s Pub will now be turned into a wine bar. Apparently the same owners as Uptown Pizzeria.

Many people would love a wine bar, and were a bit let down when the other rumor didn’t pan out.

How do you feel about this?

Notice the sign. “Leave the ‘D’ off for ‘Doomed'”
Description – Bar
Services – Bar, pool
Address – 1314 Washington St, Hoboken, NJ 07030

First of all, bring ear plugs and a winter jacket (even in the summer) because this place keeps the Air Conditioning BLASTING in high so that you’re a nice shad of blue by the time your entree’ arrives at your table. Even if you complain, repeatedly, about the cold, they simply do not care. Music is so loud you have to SHOUT at your friends over dinner. If you’re alone, just bring ear plugs.
Food is tasty BUT I have to whine about the over priced Bruschetta. NOT kidding: ONE piece of Bruschetta costs $3 and up. The circumference of one is no bigger than a dissected lemon. TINY. I ordered one Bruschetta with Mushrooms on it and it cost $6 (and the bread was black all around the edges; it was burnt).

The Asparagus was tasty as were the baby carrots. But I feel all of the of the negatives outweigh any positives in this place. Wait staff are clearly students who would rather not be there. If you are still eager to try it, bring:

1) A coat, because you WILL freeze (they don’t even have a curtain around the front door, so if it is cold out, you will freeze every time someone comes in or out- which means, even when it is COLD out, they still have the AC on and you are freezing. Idiots.
2) ear plugs and/or a megaphone so you can chat to your buddies
3) LOADS of money

I meant to say SHADE of blue. NOT “Shad” ….sorry[quote comment=”215453″]First of all, bring ear plugs and a winter jacket (even in the summer) because this place keeps the Air Conditioning BLASTING in high so that you’re a nice shad of blue by the time your entree’ arrives at your table.

We’ve been there several times over the past couple of months and my only complaint is that we didn’t discover it sooner. Yes, it’s a bit pricey for the portion sizes, but the quality of food, interesting combinations makes it easily, in my opinion, the best restaurant in town. The Tuesday night mussel special is delicious and a great value, if that’s what you’re looking for. Nice wine selection, good friendly service, I’m always looking forward to getting back there.

still though if the portion sizes are as small as the impression these reviews leaves, then it’s unfortunately a no-go. which is a shame because i’m certain this place is more distinctive than the cookie-cutter bars in hoboken that appeal to the LCD 22-year-old liver abusers who believe Miller Lite is something more than colored water.

I’ve been. Too rich for my blood. Best of luck to the owners. Just not my cup o tea.

I went there Friday night with a date and this has to be the most overpriced, waste of time restaurant in Hoboken. If you’re going to get NY prices in NJ, you better be something special and it’s not. [quote comment=”175167″]I’ve been. Too rich for my blood. Best of luck to the owners. Just not my cup o tea.

Shameful destruction of Kelly’s Bar. The new place is full of soulless poseur douche bags. Hoboken is finished. Go to Anthony Davids where you can get two scallops for $19. Soulless douche bags.[quote comment=”175167″]I’ve been. Too rich for my blood. Best of luck to the owners. Just not my cup o tea. In response to MF who said:
