• 1st Street {Upgrade}: Little Town Social

    Written by:

    UPDATE 7/29/16: Little Town Social is reported to be closing, with Village Pourhouse coming back to take its place.

    First Street has quickly become more than just a south side street with a few stores. It boasts a bookstore, boutique, and so many other wonderful attractions, the latest being Little Town Social — which is a re-opened twist/new concept on Little Town New Jersey. It’s in the location of the Village Pourhouse {205 1st Street}, but they have really updated and renovated the interior — looking sharp.

    Little Town Social’s owners, the Manzo brothers, described the opening, saying,We are looking forward to expanding the Little Town brand with the opening of Little Town Social; the new eatery will bring an elevated experience to Hoboken offering residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy locally sourced fare with a menu designed around sharing with friends and family.”

    It was definitely a social vibe. When we ordered our meals, we opted for the “summer salad,” which was a delicious combination of goat cheese, corn, black beans in an adorable mason jar. It was really delicious {probably because there was a ton of goat cheese, and goat cheese pretty much goes with most things and makes them taste great}. It’s a great app option to have something a little different than your usual wings or mozz sticks that is still pretty tasty.

    These were the pork tacos; they were a little dry, but good nonetheless!

    I really enjoyed the sweet potato veggie panini – perfect for the vegetarians in the group. Sweet potatoes and cheese can never be wrong in my book.

    Duck fat coated popcorn = the bomb. I’m a sucker for most popcorn, but this makes movie theater popcorn {or any popcorn for that matter}, totally pale in comparison.

    The fish tacos were decent, and we notice that there was a common factor in most of the dishes — CHEESE! {Not that I’m complaining}. Overall, our dishes were good, and I’m excited to come back for brunch to try the Lobster Benedict. Yuuuuum. Some of the fun things on the menu included oyster shooters and the Little Town Burger —  made with New Jersey’s Central Valley Farms pasture raised beef. Definitely trying them next time! Their drink menu features a mix of classic cocktails, as well as an extensive bourbon, scotch, and tequila list as well as wine on tap. There are also 30+ beers on draft from microbreweries- which is so fun to keep it local.

    The bar has a ton of drink specials and happy hour deals {see above}.

    Love the tile floors and the upgrades to the interior.  {Sorry random dude that was not a fan of the phone snapping in his face}. LTS has a ton of large screen TVs as well, and we’ll def be stopping by for some post-work HH fun verrrry soon. After all, they have moscow mules on the menu, how could you go wrong?

    Have you been to LTS? What did you think?
