The former location for The Humus Bar is now slated to be Hoboken’s newest Indian Restaurant when opened. Going by the name Hoboken Dhaba this Indian restaurant is saying out with the humus and in with the Tandoori and curry. The location for this new eatery is at 630 Washington Street. Hoboken Dhaba will be joining Karma, India on The Hudson, Matt and Meera, and Bombay West for the palettes of Hobokenites who love Indian food. Here is wishing the new owners the best of luck with that location. May the Washington Street Shuffle slow a bit with a place that establishes itself for years. Time will tell.

McDonald’s in Hoboken after completing an extensive renovation and modernizing both inside and out did a soft opening this weekend. Located at the corner of 3rd and Washington, this hub of a fast food and good Wi-Fi connection actually does have a few healthy items on the menu but does anyone honestly go to McDonald’s to eat a salad? Their official Grand Opening will run the week or April 22- April 28. May McDonalds super size its profits without super sizing their patrons.
Trinity Restaurant Bar and Lounge, located at 306 Sinatra Drive in Hoboken wants to thank their loyal customers with a Customer Appreciation Night this Thursday April 11 from 7pm to 2am. Despite rumors fabricated by the slipshod journalism of Perry Klaussen who erroneously stated they were closing on March 22nd on his rapidly declining smear blog Hoboken411, the owners of Trinity are indeed in business and wanted to take a positive spin on this. The result is a customer appreciation night. Here is their statement below:
“Trinity wants to thank you for your continued support by hosting Customer Appreciation Night on 4/11. From 7pm to close there will be 2-for-1 on all drinks, free appetizers from 7-8pm, and raffles to win a NY Yankees jersey and Yankees tickets. Check out www.hobokentrinity.com to join our mailing list and receive exclusive discounts, and stay tuned to our Facebook page for more updates.
Looking forward to seeing you there! Slainte!”
There will be a DJ, DJ Wilchildex from Iconic Media (http://just2iconic.com/) and food and drink specials as well as raffle so the night promises to be fun. Show Hoboken411 who little credibility he has left by showing up and supporting a local business that is finally standing up to his tyranny of misinformation.

Hoboken does have a good number of fine sushi establishments such as Robongi, Ayame, Sushi Lounge, Illuzion just to name a few but you can also add Las Olas Sushi Bar and Grill to that list as well. They are located at 1319 Washington Street in Hoboken, NJ. I paid them a visit last week for lunch and had their lunch roll combo which was fresh and well prepared but the Asian wings really stood out as a fine appetizer dish. They had just the right amount of heat and crispness and in my humble opinion put traditional wings to shame. It is always good to try new renditions of familiar things and the Asian wings at Las Olas come highly recommended. Just writing about them now has me literally salivating. I must work harder at curbing my Pavlovian responses. Overall, Las Olas has a fair priced menu and with an attentive staff produce a fine product at the right price.
Their website is www.lasolassushi.com and their phone number is 201-222-9991
Las Olas Asian wings- yum!

Today’s Hoboken Photo of the Day is of the popular Japanese Restaurant Robongi on Washington Street. Noted for their fresh sushi this establishment will soon have a busy springtime crowd outdoors as well when establishments are allowed to have outdoor seating. I personally can’t wait!
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….
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.
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.
Here is wishing this new restaurant the best of luck. Formal hours and menu to come with the next update.
