NWR: Hoboken recommendations?

FI and I just moved to Hoboken, and while we know the area somewhat, I'm wondering what restaurants we should check out, etc.

I know a bunch of you are in this area as well, so I figured why not ask you guys for your recommendations?!

    I like Satay on Washington for Malaysian food -- service is hit-or-miss but the food is good. La Isla, also on Washington, is a good place for brunch.

    Karma Kafe - Indian food
    Biggie's - clams and seafood
    Maxwell's - casual (burgers, personal pizzas, etc.)
    Arthur's Tavern - steak
    Benny Tudino's - pizza
    The Melting Pot - fondue (Ladies' Night on Mondays - $20pp for salad, cheese and chocolate)
    Margherita's - Italian and BYOB
    Willie McBride's - Irish pub

    Cucharamamma was included in the recent issue of NJ Magazine as one of the top restaurants in the state, but I've never eaten there myself. I also hear that Amanda's is a great brunch spot, and that Dino & Harry's is a good steakhouse.

    Oh where to even begin - there are so many amazing places in Hoboken! I'm a bit of a foodie so here goes...

    Napoli's - great pizza uptown
    Grimaldi's (one on Washington, one on Clinton) - great pizza downtown
    La Cucaracha Mama - ain't cheap but AMAZING South American food
    Madison's - great American food, turns into a fairly more upscale than normal bar at night
    Elysian Cafe - charming French-ish place, great outdoor seating (great french fries - haha)
    La Isla - best cuban food this side of Havana
    Dino & Harry's - great steakhouse uptown, saw Eli Manning and his wife last time I ate there
    Vito's or Lisa's (9th and Park) - GREAT mutz and Italian sandwiches
    Amanda's - great upscale brunch
    City Bistro - great brunch (huevos rancheros - yum)
    The Turning Points - amazing brunch on the water but expect to wait

    Otherwise - a great nail salon is Modern Nails on Washington and 9th, I've been to so many nail salons and they are the best.

    Feel free to PM me with any Hoboken questions - lived here for 2+ years and happy to help. Welcome to the neighborhood!! Laughing

    If you want something off the beat and path, I reccomend Three A's on 5th and Grand-

    Balbo's pizza for delivery/next to GreenRock near the Path

    Margherita's- its BYOB

    but by far and away- Augustino's is the best for Italian. Must call ahead for reservations. There are only about 8 tables in the entire restaurant.

    Outside of Hoboken/in JC
    Lighthorse Tavern
    Hamilton Inn
