3 Forty Grill – Done

3 Forty Grill closes for good in Hoboken, NJ

3 forty grill closed Hoboken NJ - 3 Forty Grill - DoneWow, this one came out of nowhere. The owners of 3 Forty Grill announced that they have closed up shop after 11 long years in Hoboken.

In a message sent out to customers they said: “We have sold 3Forty Grill, and it will open up as a BBQ Restaurant next spring. Thank you for your support over the years, it was a pleasure serving you.”

They noted that they also recently opened up HAVEN Restaurant in Edgewater – and will honor any 3 Forty Grill gift certificates there.

We’re not sure if it was just slower restaurant business and the economy – or another one of those massive rent increases Hoboken is known for. And while BBQ is totally awesome, I just hope it’s not a franchise or chain place. I wonder if it’s the same BBQ people who were rumored to be taking over the (still) empty Liberty Bar space uptown.

Either way – Hoboken keeps changing!

60 Second Review: 3 Forty Grill in Hoboken

1/11/2008:

Seeing that 340 Grill has been getting so much (paid?) attention lately, I figured I’d dust off these pictures I took from a review way back in July 2007. I held off posting for a while, then I lost one of my stupid pads with notes from recent meals. So this will be mostly from memory. I’m going to be generous and unless I’m certain I felt the way I did, I will not mention it.

Check the simple lunch time / weekday / outdoor seating review capsule after the jump.

This July 2007 review a friend and I went on consisted of some chips & lobster dip, a chicken sandwich, and a bacon cheeseburger.

My memory tells me the following:

Chips & Lobster dip: Not bad.. tons of cheese.. hardly tasted any lobster. Jalapeños weren’t hot.. but not a big deal.

Chicken Sandwich: I didn’t order this, but I remember my friend saying “nothing special.” I’ve sent her an email to see if she can recall more.

Burger: I ordered medium-rare, came out cooked on the surface of the sun. Waitress that day (which was totally empty) was nowhere to be found to send it back, so I ate it anyway. Not horrible, only average.

One thing I hate is that trend the “fancy” restaurants have been on with the mini-dishes of ketchup. Is it that low class to have a bottle of ketchup available?

Overall: Outdoor river-front seating is nice, which is one of 340 Grill’s saving graces. Will be back once the warm weather returns. Service was below average. Cost was not in line for what we received (someone needs to pay the rent there.) Bottom line: Convenient, nice location, outdoor seating a bonus, ok for taking out-of-town guests to see NYC skyline, but not a place I’d put in a regular rotation.

Just ate here recently only because someone gave my girlfriend and I a giftcard for it because we live close by – food was OK but way overpriced and my portion was extremely small.

Can’t believe the place is still open as it was more than half empty on a Friday night at 8pm

I really love this place. There are so many restaurants opening and closing in town that sometimes it’s hard to keep up with all of the recommendations that you can get and it took me about three years too long to get to this place. love the atmosphere, love the food.

[quote comment=”128766″]I used to love this place, lately however the horrible service has just become to unbearable. 340 Grill’s staff certainly know how to make the customer experience unpleasant, perhaps this is taught in their employee training program. 340 Grill was once a place where local hobokenites were welcomed, now its mostly bridge and tunnel.[/quote]
Cosign. Last time I was there (last spring) we had the most horrible server and I blacklisted it. Never again. And you’re right, it’s all too many ‘going out shirt’ crowd there.

My advice….if you want to enjoy the Hoboken waterfront then stear clear of 340. Visit Quays, Trinity and the W hotel (when it opens)instead.. ❗
