There are so many wonderful restaurants in Hoboken and note that many of them are BYOB. Here are some of my favorites:


American Cuisine

One of the more formal restaurants in Hoboken, this beautiful restaurant is great for a romantic dinner or for hosting out of town guests. There is a great bar in the front as well for a before or after dinner drink. The space is quite large, so they can accommodate large groups and parties. Don’t miss their early bird price fixed menu and discounted wine!

Italian Cuisine

The best Italian restaurant in Hoboken! However – it is really hard to get a reservation here as it is very small with few tables and so many standing reservations for regulars. Everything they serve here is amazing. I love to a tasting menu created by the witty waitresses.

Adorable restaurant (same owner as Zafra – see below) that has their own liquor license. I love the food that they cook in the wood-burning oven in the front. The bread and drinks are wonderful.

This is one of my favorite places for breakfast in Hoboken – unfortunately, the place gets packed on Sat and Sunday – so I try to go on an off day . Great, hearty breakfast and lunch options with healthy choices available. The view of NYC doesn’t get much better than this! 2 14th Street Telephone – (201) 222-8056


Cuban restaurant

One of my favorite restaurants in Hoboken. This small Cuban restaurant has great food and they will make a wonderful drink with whatever you decide to BYOB. I love their sangria, mojitos & frozen lemonade. When I go here, I like to order a lot of the small plates/tapas instead of committing to and entrée. Outdoor seating in season.
