Date night done right. Last night we checked out the new restaurant, Halifax, at the W Hoboken. YUM!
The evening atmosphere is perfect for a date night or mom's night out. The cocktails are unique and delicious, the service was impeccable, (Thank you, Daniel!) and the food was even better.
From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, we knew it was a great new find. The place was busy, yet organized. Everyone from the Maître d', hostess, servers, and support staff were all friendly, knowledgeable, and seemed genuinely happy to be there. It made a special night out feel relaxed and fun. Our server knew the menu well and was able to give suggestions as well as wine pairings. We started with a selection of artisan cheese, cured meat, and smoked mussels. It was delicious, but it was our entrees that have left us still swooning over our meal the next day. The NJ Lamb Ragout and Herb Rubbed NY Strip Steak were both cooked to perfection and were paired perfectly with our wine selections.
Sitting along the wall of windows overlooking Frank Sinatra Blvd and the Hudson River, you can almost forget where you are. The upscale, yet inviting atmosphere makes you feel like you are in the middle of NYC....but it's even better, because it's Hoboken.
BONUS: The restaurant has plenty of room for strollers both inside and outside. So, it is also a great location for summer lunches along the river or even happy hour before bedtime.
