A local Indian favorite in Hoboken, Soul Curry, announced via Instagram that it is going to be going fully virtual this past week and closing its storefront. In just the last few weeks, paper covering the windows of Soul Curry and messages that seem to indicate a new business is taking Soul Curry’s place at 618 Washington Street in Hoboken. The business, according to slim signage, appears to be a new BBQ joint. Read on to learn more about Soul Curry’s decision to go virtual and what we know about the new BBQ restaurant coming to Hoboken. Due to the ramifications of COVID-19, like many other businesses around the nation, Soul Curry was forced to scale down in order to stay afloat.

Citing pandemic-related concerns with foot traffic and high rent, the restaurant wrote on its Instagram, “Given the challenges of the last 10 months, we could not find an economically practical and financially sustainable solution to continue our operations at 618 Washington Street in Hoboken without the expected dine-in traffic and rent reductions. Over the last few weeks, we have been actively working on launching a delivery-only cloud kitchen that will bring our delicious soulful signature dishes and meal kits to your door.”

This is a great restaurant loss for Hoboken, as Hari, the owner, and restauranteur is a cookbook author and culinary consultant to many restaurant brands from Dubai UAE, Bangalore Indian to Bangkok Thailand. He also has a range of food products available in major supermarkets including Whole Foods Market. He opened Soul Curry in the Washington Street space in 2018, after Matt and Meera, another Indian spot, had closed at the same location.

Soul Curry in that location was a BYOB and had specialized in a fusion of Indian cooking — while keeping true to local NJ roots. Hari shared with Hoboken Girl that with his restaurant, he “supports local farmers through purchasing their products, buying chicken from local New Jersey farms, and making things farm-to-table fresh daily.” He shared that even with this virtual transition, the cuisine will still be fresh, top-notch, and delicious.

As it stands, there are currently cheeky little signs on Soul Curry’s windows that read “Stop Grilling Me” and “Heard It’s Smokin’ Good” — which lead us to believe that a new BBQ restaurant is taking its place. Turns out, that the new restaurant is in fact a BBQ spot called Myron Mixon’s Pitmaster BBQ.
