About Mikie Squared Bar + Grill
Mikie Squared Bar + Grill was more than just a dining spot, but a place to watch the game on its flat-screen TVs or cozy up with a friend and a martini. Since its 2005 inception, Mikie Squared’s goal has been to embody the essence of Hoboken’s neighborhood feel through its restaurant, bar, music, events, and lively cocktail menu. The essence of this neighborhood feel was encapsulated by its motto: “good food, good drinks, good people.”
The menu featured burgers, sandwiches, and entrees, complemented by a drink selection ranging from fine wines and beers to sangria, mojitos, and martinis. Mikie Squared was also known for its brunch menu, featuring classic items such as french toast, pancakes, and steak and eggs. The staff’s ability to recognize customers’ orders before a word was spoken became a standout attraction for loyal customers.

Named after the owner Mike Fasciano and his 4-year-old son, Mikie, the true familial business was evident at Mikie Squared. Mikie was a familiar face at the establishment, often spotted after school watching Tom + Jerry and enjoying fresh avocado, ham, and french fries. The family’s shared passion for the Yankees, Devils, and Nets further commenced their connection to the Hoboken community — especially during live sporting events showcased on the restaurant’s TVs.
