It’s been forever. Between work, freelance work, getting ready for my best friend’s wedding this weekend, and preparing for Italy – it’s been crazy! But, I can still sneak a few posts in before I jet set to the land of wine and pasta.
So in preparation for some good eatin’, I wanted to share some of my recent great eats in Hoboken and NYC, from breakfast to dinner!
Brunch | Marty O’Brien’s
I found my new favorite brunch spot. Granted, I find a new favorite all the time and it seems there are infinite possibilities for a Sunday breakfast in Hoboken, but this one is a true winner! Marty O’Brien’s in Hoboken. Even in the rain, Tom and I sat outside and sipped our complimentary breakfast beverages. That’s right, a free drink with your meal! You can’t beat it. Although tempted by a classic omelette, I ordered the breakfast burrito and snuck a bite of Tom’s pancakes, which were so rich they tasted like a flattened muffin. I was thinking about this meal the rest of the day….
Lunch | Fiore’s
Hoboken has a few “famous” spots. And if you think the line at Carlo’s Bakery is long, try waiting for a sandwich during lunch rush hour at Fiore’s. And they don’t even have a TV show. Famous for their roast beef and mozzarella, this place is a Hoboken word-of-mouth classic.
I’m not a big roast beef eater, but good mozzarella I can never resist. So I created my own Italian “classic” with turkey, fresh mozz, and roasted rep peppers, topped with balsamic. Yum! I could eat this every day… except Sunday, because they are closed. Those Catholic Italians …
Dinner | S’Mac
If you know me, you know my obsession with mac and cheese. And I’ve been dying to go to Sarita’s Macaroni and Cheese, better known as “S’MAC“. So when I saw a Groupon (2 macs and 2 beers for only $19!) I snatched it up!
We finally went, and it was
as good as even better than I imagined. I had the 4 Cheese (I like the classics) and Tom had Masala, mac with Indian spices.
I’m also behind on sharing my Hudson Restaurant Week meals! More to come on that!
