We know, we know, there’s a ton of participating restaurants for Restaurant Week — and there are only so many meals in one day, let alone two weeks! So we thought we’d compile a list of our favorite restaurants in the Hudson County for Hudson County Restaurant Week and why you should check them out during #HudsonRW [January 26th – February 6th]:

1. Inexpensive and Delicious: Amelia’s Bistro, Jersey City



Cozy ambiance with delicious food — definitely worth the trek to JC. Amelia’s boasts $4 mimosas and bloodys, and a scrumptious brunch menu on normal days, so we can only imagine what restaurant week will be like!

2. A Gourmet Meal with a View: Battello, Jersey City



Rustic yet modern architecture with an upscale vibe, this restaurant has a view that simply does not compare with any other spot on the Hudson. Add Chef Ryan DePersio’s delicious food and elixirs, and you’ve got a night to remember with a date or group of friends.


3. Filled with Hoboken History: Elysian Cafe, Hoboken



You can’t beat the Salmon Eggs Bene or neighborhood vibe with this stunner of a restaurant. The Elysian Café is the oldest continually operated bar/restaurant in Hoboken. Opened originally as Dillenger & Jeffson’s in 1895, it continued through prohibition as an ice cream parlor and as a hair salon. The Elysian currently offers a French Bistro style menu, accompanied by Hoboken’s first 100% smoke-free bar. Eugene and Joyce Flinn, the café’s third and current owners, have painstakingly restored the Elysian’s original features.


4. Ma & Pa Homestyle Italian: Laico’s, Jersey City



Known for being a “house” turned Italian restaurant, this place is sure not to disappoint. Definitely make reservations because it’s small — but for what they don’t have in size, they make up for in flavor. YUM!

5. Greek Food and a View: Molo’s, Weehawken



I recently stumbled upon this during my wedding venue search — and while it didn’t work for our 200 person wedding, it is a place definitely worth checking out ASAP! Filled with Ouzo {Greek liquor} and lots of other delicacies, this seafood-filled restaurant on the water is a must-visit.


6.A Restored Brownstone With a Killer Kitchen: Amanda’s Restaurant, Hoboken



If you haven’t been to Amanda’s Restaurant, GO. This beautiful spot on Washington St. in Hoboken is the PERFECT spot for a delicious, indulgent dinner. From dishes like pan roasted salmon (yum) to creamy polenta, there isn’t one item on the menu that won’t satisfy your taste buds. With a generous wine selection, Amanda’s is a beautiful, cozy spot for date night!

7. New Uptown Hoboken Stomping Grounds: McLoone’s Pier House, Hoboken



I just love this spot — right next to Pier 13 on the waterfront, McLoone’s is a local New Jersey chain {that has expanded only because it’s super delicious!} and lots of great seafood. The round bar in the center is nothing to scoff at either, perfect for a happy hour situation with some friends uptown.


8. Pretzel and Kielbasa Heaven: Pilsener Haus Biergarten, Hoboken



While we’re sure you’ve imbibed a brewski or two at this spot, Pilsener Haus also boasts amazing food. Made to order burgers, schnitzels, and jalapeno & cheddar

9. Steak, Steak, STEAK: Dino & Harry’s, Hoboken



Tip: Try the filet mignon. Sooooo good. All the way uptown, located on 14th.


10. Place We Really Want to Try Ourselves: Hamilton Inn, Jersey City



So I won’t lie, I’ve heard wonderful things about the Hamilton Inn myself, but have never gotten a chance to eat here. On our personal Restaurant Week list! If you go, let us know how it is!



Happy Restaurant Week! Enjoy it 🙂
