It’s no secret that we’re big foodies at The Hoboken Girl, and if you’re anything like us, deciding on what or where to eat can sometimes cause unnecessary tension when it’s time to order (ahem, significant others will not be named). Luckily for us, Wonder is officially open in the Mile Square, located at 221 River Street and features over 15+ award-winning restaurants in one spot — making it super simple and easy to order anything and everything you’re craving from some of the best restaurants and chefs in the country. Read on to learn more about Hoboken’s newest dining experience (+ an exclusive offer for HG readers).
Wonder in the Mile Square
After opening storefronts in NYC and Westfield in North Jersey, the Wonder team decided the Mile Square would be its next location, naturally. Officially now open in downtown Hoboken at 221 River Street, Wonder features 15+ unique eateries in a food-hall style restaurant with a melting pot of cuisines available from around the country.
The Hoboken location is gorgeous with a modern and clean, open space featuring Wonder’s signature hunter green color throughout, herringbone wood floors, and easy-to-use tablets. Menus are available on the tablets or you can peruse the hardcopy menus of each restaurant available (no judgment here) before placing your order on the tablets. Tables are also available towards the back of the space for those looking to enjoy their lunch out of the office or prefer to eat their dinner at the food hall before heading home or out for the night.
Wonder’s concept allows the food hall to partner with some of the best chefs and restaurants in the country to recreate signature menu items from renowned restaurants. These highly coveted dishes are cooked on-site for customers to enjoy, making it easy to experience these restaurants without having to catch a flight or travel outside of your neighborhood.
What to Expect
Wonder stands alone as a central hub for diners, bringing together a number of restaurants under one roof. After working tirelessly with chef partners including Michelin Star recipients, James Beard Award winners, Food Network stars + legendary restaurateurs, the Wonder team recreated specialty menu items from each restaurant at its food hall-style dining area.
You can choose from a variety of ‘restaurants’ and order whatever catches your eye — with your meal prepared fresh on the spot and ready in less than 35 minutes — that includes dine-in, pick-up, and delivery. And the best part? No more dinner debates between you and your S.O. or the oh-so-particular littles ones in your life.
Wonder even has a user-friendly app and website so you can order pick up or delivery on your way home from work.
Restaurants To Choose From
The diverse options at Wonder make it easy for everyone to find something to eat for lunch + dinner. A few of our favorites from the dining hall’s expansive list of partners include:
Alanza + Alanza Pizza — The best of traditional Italian and Napolitano dishes and pizza from a born-and-bred Bronx chef. HG Pro tip: Order the Rigatoni alla Vodka and the Quattro Formaggi Pizza, you won’t be disappointed.
Bobby Flay Steak — Bold flavors and premium cuts from one of the country’s best chefs. Don’t sleep on the double-cut pork chop adorned with pomegranate molasses glaze and bourbon sauce. Pair that with mushroom mashed potatoes and you are set.
Tejas Barbeque — One taste is all it takes to realize that Tejas is really the best BBQ in Texas. A pulled pork sandwich with slaw on the side is all you need for a great lunch.
Fred’s Meat + Bread — ATL hot-spot with a cult-following known for its acclaimed burgers and sandwiches. It might be known for its burgers but damn do the cheesesteaks look good.
Wonder is located at 221 River Street in Hoboken with separate locations in NYC and Westfield, NJ.
