Hoboken Restaurant Recommendations
We all have our favorite Hoboken places for one reason or another. I stumbled across someone on the Chowhound.com message boards asking for a specific recommendation.
Since that doesn’t seem to have a good concentration of Hoboken people “in the know” (like on Hoboken411), what would you tell him?
That One Restaurant in Hoboken
“I will be in Hoboken in the next couple of weeks (week night) and would like to have dinner there. I would like to know that one place you would recommend, and why.
As far as type of food is concerned, I would like to stay away from Italian, only because there are lots of good Italian restaurants where I live. I’m wide open to other suggestions.
Two requirements are: the place must have a liquor license and must take reservations. I don’t want to be cooling my heels for an hour or more, thus making for a very late arrival home.”
The two responses he received so far were:
Amanda’s on Washington Ave. – they have an “early bird” special that is quite reasonable and French food that is good. I think they have a bar but can’t quite remember and we have not been there for a couple of years so I would call ahead.
I work in Hoboken, so I do lunches at these places. Teak on the Hudson isn’t bad. The location is really pretty. Lots of sushi and some other specialities. Brass Rail is overrated. It’s Greek to Me is OK, so so really. I really like the Karma Cafe, which is an Indian buffet and probably not what you are looking for. Grimaldi’s Pizza is worth the trip, even tho you said no Italian. Delish.
Let’s show them what we can advise… because with bad advice, he’ll end up hating Hoboken!
