Hoboken Girl’s Guide to Healthy Hoboken Eating

With spring fast approaching, it’s time to come out of Hoboken hibernation and get fit and ready for the warmer weather. There are a large variety of eateries and bars, and it can sometimes be tough to stay healthy while galivanting in Hoboken. So in an effort to help you stay healthy and prep for bathing suit season, I’ve compiled an abbreviated list of places and food menu options for when you’re out and about but still trying to go light…

1. Trinity Bar and Grill:

Portabello Mushroom Wrap – I recently ordered this, it was delicious! The chickpeas (versus a side of fries) are a healthy and lean boost of protein as well.

Blackened Salmon and Avocado Wrap – a yummy and healthy option for a wrap.

*FYI: Avocado contains great nutrients such as vitamin K, potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, and is a wonderful source of antioxidants, lending itself well to the promotion of a healthier cardiovascular system and a skinny waistline. When in doubt- go with avocado! Not to mention it’s delicious.

2. Wicked Wolf:

Grilled Veggie Wrap on Whole Wheat – similar to the popular turkey wrap, but the veggie option. I just can’t get enough sauteed veggies! Yum.

Harvest Pear Salad: Mixed greens topped with grilled chicken breast, blue cheese, dried cranberries and pecans served with balsamic vinaigrette - take my word for it, it’s delicious.

    • FYI: Wicked Wolf’s salads are available with grilled chicken breast, grilled thick sliced steak, grilled shrimp or sauteed shrimp for an additional charge…I’d recommend grilled shrimp or chicken if you’re trying to stay lean.

3. Clinton Social:

Vegetarian Stuffed Pepper: This bad boy contains some delicious flavors (plaintains, red peppers, red pepper coulis, basmati rice), and after taking your first bite, you won’t be able to put it down.

Yellowfin Tuna: Pepper-dusted, wasabi-whipped potatoes, julienned vegetables with a soy-ginger glaze.

*FYI: Tuna is a truly a nutrient-dense food. It’s an excellent source of protein, and it’s rich in minerals like selenium, magnesium, and potassium; vitamin B, and omega-3.

4. Mikie Squared:

Cindy is ALWAYS on a Diet SaladThis delicious salad is a little embarrassing to ask for by name, but it’s worth it. Grilled chicken with grilled vegetables & avocado with a side of honey balsamic vinaigrette…low carb and delicious. It really doesn’t get better. The sauteed veggies are delicious and go perfectly with the honey basalmic.

Grilled Salmon – Says the menu, “Drizzled in a delectable dill creme sauce with rice & grilled vegetables.” Can’t go wrong with fish and veggies (and a glass of pinot).

5. Marty O’Brien’s Social Club had three options you might want to try:

Grilled Eggplant with fresh mozzarella, grilled roasted red peppers, tomato, balsamic glaze.

Seared Tuna Salad – Mixed greens with mandarian oranges, red peppers, snow peas, goat cheese, balsamic dressing. Did I mention I love basalmic dressing?

Vegetable Stir Fry- Fresh seasonal vegetables, teriyaki sauce, and rice – add chicken or shrimp for some extra protein (but hold the steak if you want to keep it light)!
Regardless of where you choose to wine and dine in Hoboken, make your options healthy when possible. A few simple rules to follow to stay lean: order your food grilled not fried, hold the cheese when you can, and fill up on veggies before diving into the salty appetizers and other indulgences.
Happy (almost) spring!

“Local Gossip, Local Grub” @ Clinton Social in Hoboken

Clinton Social

“Local Gossip, Local Grub”

CLinton 010


Hoboken prides itself on its old-school classic Italian culture. This includes hospitality, traditions, and of course—food.

That’s what Clinton Social, located 700 Clinton Street does for contemporary Hoboken. With its dim lights and rustic atmosphere, it allows families and loved ones to dine in a modern restaurant with an authentic Hoboken vibe.

CLinton 013

“All of the décor is from old-school Hoboken, and our theme and the whole feel of the place is ‘local gossip, local grub’,” Eric Godfrey, General Manager and wine expert says.

Clinton Social, owned by David Carney opened last June. However, this past week there were some serious changes made to the fantastic menu.

For starters they are now offering a Hummus Platter with olives, eggplant tapenade and warm pita bread, and French Onion Dumplings with asiago and provolone cheese, which is a spin-off of the popular soup. Also, they are now featuring an array of salads and sliders for every taste.

A few signature entrées include Short Ribs with a port wine glaze, Chilean Seabass with black beans and fruit salsa, and Seafood Bouillabaisse with shrimp, clams, mussels, chorizo, and rice in a homemade broth.

CLinton 007

Besides fabulous food, the Clinton Social serves up some awesome customer service.

“We pride ourselves on our staff, big time—I am blessed. In my opinion, we probably have the best staff in Hoboken. They’re great guys and gals who care about the place,” Godfrey says.

Here are some of their drink specials:

Sunday- $3 drafts

Monday-Half price on Infusions

Tuesday-Wine Night

Wednesday-Half price on Sweet Tea Cocktails

Thursday-Martini Night

Monday-Friday: Happy Hour from 4-7pm includes $3.00 drafts, discounted well drinks and sangria.

Not only is the Clinton Social a fantastic place to dine, but Friday and Saturday nights are a new hot-spot. The bar is open until 3 a.m. and a DJ plays all night long, offering a good time for all ages, above 21, of course.
