• {National Wine Day}: Where to Celebrate in Hoboken

    Written by:

    Sunday, May 25th is National Wine Day. What’s a more fantastic way to celebrate MDW than celebrating National Wine Day as well? There are many places in Hoboken that are perfect for celebrating the wine-derful occasion. Yeah, we went there.

     

    WINE BARS:

    Amanda’s – 908 Washington Street

    Amanda’s has often been named one of the best restaurants in the area.

    Amanda’s is not only a wine bar with many options, but it also has delicious food. The restaurant often hosts wine dinners–the most recent one being this past week–where a five-course meal is served and a new wine is paired with each course. Amanda’s has a romantic ambiance and is sure to impress. For a cheaper option, Amanda’s also offers an early dinner special Monday-Saturday (first seating is at 8 and last seating is at 5:45) with $20 bottles of wine and a three course meal for $16 a person.

    Bin 14 — 1314 Washington Street

    Pinot Blanc at Bin 14

    Pinot BLANC. Sooooo delicious.

    Bin 14 is self-proclaimed as Hoboken’s first wine bar–but it also has delish Italian food. They’re gluten-free friendly, and during a previous visit sampled many different types of dishes Bin 14 has to offer, from scallops to kale, quinoa to bruschetta. Not only do they have many GF options, but they are absolutely scrumptious. A favorite wine there was the South Africa Sauvignon Blanc and the Pinot Blanc. Yes, pinot BLANC.

     

    Onieal’s — 343 Park Avenue

    Onieal’s has a varied menu ranging from burgers to pasta, but they also have a pretty extensive wine list. If you’re unable to participate in National Wine Day this Sunday, not to fret! Every Wednesday Onieal’s has “Wine Down Wednesdays” in which they offer $5 glasses of wine to rid the hump day blues.

     

    IF YOU’D RATHER BYOB:

    Anthony David’s — 111 Tenth Street

    Anthony David’s has its many perks… the yummy food, the vast gluten-free options (which are most things on the menu!), and that they’re BYOB! Anthony David’s has one of the best brunches in Hoboken, along with one of the most lavish dinners. Bring a date and your favorite wine, and enjoy all that Anthony David’s has to offer!

    Schnackenberg’s — 1110 Washington Street

    Schnackenberg’s may be known for their shakes and donuts, but they also recently started serving dinner! The menu ranges from the yummy fried chicken to a baby spinach salad. They are also gluten-free friendly! Any sandwich or burger can be substituted for gluten-free bread. Additionally, they’re BYOB, so you can sip on your favorite wine as you enjoy the vintage atmosphere.

    Dozzino — 534 Adams Street

    The Hudson: prosciutto, artichoke, spinach, and egg.

    Dozzino is a little artisanal pizzeria at the corner of 5th and Adams with unique and delicious pies that will get you addicted to all-things pizza. The pizzeria has a romantic and cozy ambience, and they also have a bocce court in the back! Bring your favorite wine to pair with your favorite pie that you’ll definitely never find at another regular pizzeria. Also: they have special pies that change daily (one of the common ones being nutella + marscapone, yum!) so make sure you check their twitter before attending.
