The Stewed Cow Opens in Hoboken Featuring Great New Floor Plan and Mechanical Bull–Photos and Video

The Stewed Cow Mechanical Bull Hoboken

The Stewed Cow, located at 400 Adams Street  in Hoboken, recently had their Grand Opening on Friday March 8th after extensive renovations and change in theme from a neighborhood bar and restaurant to a Country and Western bar complete with a mechanical bull.  That’s right folks, no bull from TheBoken.com, a mechanical bull! Formerly known as the Gaslight, the ownership has stayed intact and literally weathered the storm (Hurricane Sandy) and persevered to make for a festive re-opening. Sometimes in life you have to grab the bull by the horns and the ownership has done just that making this a fun and friendly attractive new venue.

Friends and family of the owners were there on Sunday afternoon including some children who also rode the bull and fell off quite safely. The bar went through a safety certification process with the a firm that is credentialed with State of New Jersey before they could operate the bull. With air being pumped all the pit much like a child’s bouncy house the safety issues appear to be quite well handled. The bull actually has inflatable horns so no accidental skewering is possible. The new bar is an open floor plan and has plenty of windows that give it cheery atmosphere. With a number of beers on tap and and good selection of Bourbons and other mixed drinks this bar seems to be off to  a good start out of the gate.

TheBoken.com plans on coming back to sample some of their brews and whiskeys and pub fare but in the meantime wishes the ownership and the staff prosperity on the promising new look and establishment designed for urban cowboy and cowgirl alike.

The short video below shows off the mechanical bull that should be a hit for many….

This understated sign was a gift  to the bar from a friend and should be hanging outside soon.

Below are more shots of the bar’s interior which has been nicely redone with an open floor plan and plenty of windows to make the place fill up with natural light during the day…

Jo’s Diner is Open for Business at 219 Washington Street in Hoboken–Try the Roast Beef Sandwich

Jo's Diner Hoboken Exterior

Jo's Diner Hoboken Exterior

Joe’s Diner is now open for business in Hoboken. Located at 219 Washington Street at the site of the former Japanese Restaurant Maru, Jo’s Diner is priming to be a bustling breakfast/luncheonette in a prime location. They have been open about a week and are planning on a schedule of 7am-7pm. They are still in the “soft opening” phase but TheBoken.com was able to pop in and try a few of their lunch/dinner items last week….

Jo's Diner Hoboken Chicken Soup with Leg

The first item was the chicken soup which has a unique feature of having a chicken leg in the bowl. The stock was very thick with a lot similarity in flavor to French onion soup without the cheese and a bit more like chicken broth (of course) . This item will likely be a favorite given its unique home-style flavor and perhaps the novelty of getting to eat part of it with your hands.

Jo's Diner Hoboken Roast Beef Sandwich

The next item was the Roast Beef Sandwich. This sandwich comes with delicious dipping gravy and a pasta salad. The Roast Beef and gravy were excellent but perhaps this could be offered with additional options like French fries, mashed potatoes or even coleslaw. The sandwich itself is definitely worth coming back for.

Below are a few more interior shots of the interior of this family run restaurant. Note that this restaurant is adorned with decorative roosters as a tribute to the mother of the owner Joseph who collected them but recently passed away after a long illness. It is a nice touch to a restaurant that is family owned by a third generation Hobokenite.

Hoboken Tacos Coming Soon to 98 Willow Ave in Hoboken

Thanks to reader TheBankRobber for this tip: Hoboken Tacos is coming to 98 Willow Avenue in Hoboken soon. Not much more is known at this point but the question of the day is with the Taco Truck nearby is there enough demand for tacos in Hoboken? Perhaps the new place will carve out a new niche in Hoboken and tacos won’t go the over-saturated route of falafel in town.

Washington Street Shuffle – Medicine Man Pharmacy And Compounding Coming Soon to Hoboken

Medicine Man Pharmacy & Compounding Hoboken 511 Washington Street

Medicine Man Pharmacy & Compounding will be coming to Hoboken soon at the former location of Hoboken Antiques at 511 Washington Street Hoboken, NJ. This summary of what they do is from their website http://medicinemanrx.com/:

“Medicine Man Pharmacy & Compounding is a full line pharmacy. We offer our patients personalized health care, which includes; medication therapy management, complimentary and alternative medicine, homeopathy, compounding, monitoring of chronic disease states, and many more tailored health care services. Visit our store and learn how we help our patients live their lives to the fullest.”

After Barron’s Drug closed shop in midtown last year and sold their customer list to Walgreen’s, it is nice to see someone try to make a go of it and attempt to service the people’s pharmaceutical needs with a customer focused approach. At least that is how they are advertising it. For mid-towners like me this could make picking up medication even easier.
