Deciding where to eat in Hoboken is not for the faint of heart. With hundreds of restaurants and cuisines packed into just two square miles, any selection comes with the admission that you’ll be missing out on something else. For over 20 years, Hoboken Community Center (HCC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the well-being of Hoboken residents, has hosted an annual fundraiser event that cures this food FOMO, at least for a night. Today, June 11th, Taste of Hoboken returns to Maxwell Place Park, featuring over 20 local restaurants for residents to sample. The event is ticketed and will run from 6PM – 9:30PM.
