The Cuban, in the Heart of Hoboken, Offers a Sophisticated, Yet Welcoming Destination

“The Cuban, a stylish, Cuban-influenced restaurant and bar, will open January 17, 2012 at 333 Washington Street, offering an intimate experience in trendy downtown Hoboken. Executive Chef Alexis Lahens will oversee the culinary direction of the restaurant, offering ingredient-driven classics inspired by the essence of traditional Cuban cuisine, with an innovative contemporary twist.

“My goal is to create a restaurant that is approachable, yet elegant with a cultural flair,” Bijen Patel, owner of The Cuban.

Chef Alexis Lahens cultivates synergies of authentic Cuban ingredients that are both traditional and modern. Lahens will create a menu of seasonal, flavor-forward dishes, including Cuban Corn Puree, with scallop and shrimp enchildado and Salted Cod fish in an onion tomato stew and grilled Spanish octopus with an olive potato puree. Decedant desserts like Dulce Cubanito, a honey glazed bread pudding with candied bacon or Tres leches de Canela, three milks cake with spiced vanilla bean soak will offer a look into Cuba’s sweeter side. Regardless of which dish guests select, they will experience a warm welcome, and excellent cuisine.

The bar list features an array of mojitos and sangrias, as well as specialty drinks and cocktails, and a refined selection of Spanish-inspired wines. Guests can enjoy an array of small plates and eclectic Cuban tapas to accompany their wine selections.

“It’s really about a return to a traditional way of eating,” said Alexis Lahens, Executive Chef. “I’m excited to be part of the community and have a place where folks can have a great time.”The Cuban features color palates that reflect the culture. It will have the sophisticated, sexy aesthetic befitting a restaurant that is intended to be both a must-visit dining destination and a neighborhood hangout. The 75-seat restaurant will feature handcrafted furnishings, melding the elegance of old Cuba and the flare of new world Cuba. Plush leather banquettes paired with dark wood chairs, walls covered with paintings from a local Cuban art studio, and floors with a Cuban-inspired pattern that echoes through the entire restaurant.

The Cuban is open Tuesday- Sunday. Tuesdays- Wednesdays and Sundays from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Thursdays- Saturdays from 4:00pm to 11pm. Late night bar on Thursdays- Saturdays until 2:00am. For more information, please visit www.thecubannj.com or 201.795.9899.”

A place called “The Cuban” is owned by someone named “Bijen Patel”. Geesh, talk about outsourcing. 😀

Agreed. If you go to Nine, you’re going to be surrounded by the same people you see on the PATH train, in line at the A&P, in CVS, etc. Why have bottle service to be around the same people you would be around just walking down the street.

It seems to me that the whole allure of going to a high-end club comes from the fact that you don’t know what is going to happen, that you could meet someone great, etc. If you go to the right clubs in the city, you truly could find yourself partying with literally anyone from some goofballs from the suburbs to some sports star, mogul, actress, etc. The allure lies in the unknown and the idea that “anything could happen” (of course, usually nothing great does happen, but every now and then…).

But to pay for bottle service in Hoboken, where there are no unknowns and the experience is pretty predictable…why?[/quote]

why?….so your not waiting 30 minutes everytime you need a drink and you have a place to sit all night. You’d pay the exact same amount if you bought the bottle by the drink. makes complete sense to me. What doesn’t make sense is buying one a a tiny shitbox like nine ❗ So ultra cool and exclusive …..gimme a break!
