ZYLO Tuscan Steak House Stands Out

zylo-in
At The Boken Online, we often find ourselves trying to uncover that great meal off the beaten path, the incredible deal at the spot around the corner, or the signature item at the Mom & Pop shop down the street. And somehow, through our searching, we overlooked a great spot in the tallest building in Hoboken.

Located at W Hoboken, ZYLO, a “Tuscan steak house,” combines the modern luxury feel of a NYC restaurant with the simple pleasures of an Italian kitchen. The restaurant, while located on the ground floor of the hotel, has unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline.

The menu is a combination of the indulgent traditional Italian fare we all know and love, with elements of a modern steakhouse. For the most part, steaks, meats, and fish are served a la carte.

The prices are extremely reasonable compared to NYC spots with the same vibe, and (surprisingly enough) the entrees are comparable to other Hoboken spots such as 10th and Willow, Three A’s, and the Brass Rail. The other steakhouse in town, Dino & Harry’s, while a favorite of ours, will hit your wallet harder. We especially love that the incredible pasta dishes can be ordered in both entrée and appetizer portions, beginning at just $8.

During the week, they also have a special that you really can’t beat for this price, quality, and ambiance:

PIZZA PERONI PROSECCO
Monday–Friday, 4–7pm
Join us this fall for $5 Margherita Pizzas, $3 bottles of Peroni and $5 glasses of Prosecco.

Below are some of the items we got our paws on (the benefit of eating with a group – we got to sample an array of items.) We’ve starred our favorites.
