hudson county cheap eats
#5
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


What are people's favorite cheap, delicious spots to eat in Hudson County? I'm especially looking for spots outside downtown JC--in the Heights, JSQ, West Side, etc.
Even more so, looking for places in Hoboken, Kearny, Union City, North Bergen, Weehawken, Harrison, etc.

And what's so great about them?

(For a little article I'm writing.)

Thanks!

I still think their coffee is amazing--best cappuccino I've had anywhere, and their iced coffee is refreshingly delicious. Milk is to die for.
Now, if they could just have a more reliably good pastry case...

(Overall, I'm a big fan.)

Rustique Pizza - Jersey Avenue - Hamilton Park

Rustique Pizza

Jersey City, NJ 07302

http://www.rustiquepizza.com

I went tonight for the first time since the new management took over. What a change. Place settings at the tables! Menus brought over without having to ask! Owners and staff are courteous and NOT KRAZY! Best of all, the pizza and rest of the food was great--butternut squash ravioli special was awesome. Only complaint: The roasted red peppers in the salad were pretty acidic (slightly rancid?) tasting.
I really hope people support this place so that it sticks around.

Update: she's been spotted within the past couple of days inside people's yards, taking plants and possibly other pieces of property, too.
Anyone who has actually seen her taking their stuff can email Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association VP Jan Nordland: JNord5852@aol.com

They're all in her backyard--that's why. You have to enter through the parking lot on 9th, between Coles and Monmouth. Her place is the second one in from 9th--next to the place on the corner with the added top floor.

All this said, I have no real proof that she's the culprit. But this is the person everyone suspects (and some say they've seen clutching plants with dirt still clinging to the roots.

She's on Coles, between 9th and 10th, closer to 9th. She also likes portulacas (stole mine two weeks ago, but left the vincas and coleus). She doesn't like impatiens--too pedestrian, I assume.
I, too, have peered over her fence and seen her backyard, and it's like a garden junkyard. I've considered leaving a note on her door. I know that one of her neighbors spoke sternly to her and his window boxes haven't been touched since.

Re: Mamoun's Falafel Opens up in Hoboken

Just got back from Hoboken Mamoun's. Had the "Meat Combo," with chicken, tabouli, baba, and falafel--also a side of stuffed grape leaves. They're still in start-up mode (no credit card machine, no knives, apparently no heat), but the food was delicious, and the staff was incredibly friendly. I definitely prefer it to Ibby's.
Can't wait to go back.

Amazing baked goods at MWL right now. After debating between the chocolate bread pudding and the apple cheddar scone, I finally polished off one of Celeste's homemade croissants, filled with Nutella.

Another vote for Madame Claude Wine Shop. While their selection isn't huge, it's really good. I also picked up an amazing eggplant dip there and some good, crusty bread.
More than that, the staff is awesome. Mathias recommended a soft, pungent, almost goat-y cow's milk cheese to me once, and I've gone back for it several times.
(If you want to sample their cheese--and wine--for free, go to a tasting pretty much any Saturday night.)
All this, and you're keeping your money in Jersey City.

Not too shy to talk


Garden Preschool Cooperative will be hosting a Open House this Saturday, January 8th between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. for all interested families (children welcome). Meet our teachers, see our space and talk to current parents about the school. Children must be between the ages of 2.9 and 5 years of age by the time school starts in Sept 2011.

GPC is a parent-run nonprofit preschool that seeks to provide high-quality progressive early childhood education in a nurturing atmosphere. Founded in 1995, the school was envisioned as an alternative to parents who sought an enhanced level of involvement in the education of their young children and who believed a cooperative community would provide an ideal setting for early childhood education.

If you are unable to make our open house please feel free to call or email the school to set up a visit.

Applications for the 2011-2012 academic year are due by February 7th.

thanks, celeste, for yet another fabulous communal dinner this past thursday. i know i won't do the menu justice by ticking it off from memory, but a few of the highlights:

-warm fougasse bread with spinach-roasted garlic spread
-shiitake mushroom soup
-a veggie moussaka-type thing
-salad with beets and goat cheese
-probably the best pumpkin pie i've ever had--i'm generally not a fan, but the crust made this one.

oh, and apparently jersey wines and spirits donated the wine that was at every table. all and all, i winner of a night. can't wait to hear what's coming in november--celeste said maybe pizza or pasta.

Ha--I was just about to post about tonight. I think this was one of the best yet. And that berry shortcake with fresh whipped cream. Still debating whether to return for the same dinner next Thursday night. I wonder if she even has room.

Love these dinners--thanks, Celeste.

Re: Downtown Vet on 1st Street / Dr. Michael Tuder

Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


What is it with this guy?

Our black lab ate a pound a half of grapes last year (TOXIC), and when my husband brought her in to Tudor's office at 1 pm on a Wednesay, Tudor informed him that we'd be billed for an emergency visit ($75 extra), because this was during the office's lunch time. (Lunch time lasts 2 hours at the office.)
When my husband gently protested (pointing out that time was of the essence and we didn't have the option of returning after lunch), Tudor said something like, "look, we don't have to treat your dog" and told him to go somewhere else.

We wound up going to Tudor's Hoboken branch and got the same stupid $75 charge, but at least Tudor himself wasn't there. The staff in Hoboken is much nicer.

That said, we now drive to the vets over on Westside. They're VERY nice and more affordable. (Of course, when you're talking about pet care, "affordable" is a relative term.)

We'll never go back to Tudor's office if we can help it.

LOVED the communal dinner. my husband and i have gone every month since they began last fall. each one has been delicious (tilapia and some sort of roasted garlic spread were the highlights....oh, and the homemade chocolates at the end), and we always wind up meeting some fascinating new person.

keep up the good work, celeste!

went to last night's monthly communal dinner and was pretty blown away. last night's dinner was even better than last month's. celeste started us with these delicious, flaky cheese biscuits, followed by a tomato-y seafood stew whose fancy name i can't recall, then spinach salad with pomegranate seeds and mandarin oranges, then dessert....i chose the chocolate gateau. yum.
but just as good as the food (and the live jazz) was the warm, fuzzy feeling the evening gave me about jersey city. go ahead, cynical JC listers: laugh if you must. but celeste is doing an amazing job making her little corner of downtown JC a vibrant, happening, tasty destination.

it was $30/person, which i thought was very fair, considering she served grass-fed beef as the main course and that everything else was so fresh and tasty. the live jazz was great, too.

the food was plenty for me, especially since she served a big basket of fresh bread with the meal. we didn't pay by the pound. the food was served to us on plates, restaurant style. yes, we did bring our own bottle of wine.

i went for dinner last night and loved it. here's why:

-four courses of deliciousness (homemade bread with roasted garlic, boeuf bourguignon, chocolate cake)
-great jazz
-sharing wine with neighbors we'd never met before (but will hopefully see again)
-celeste, who always makes me feel happy that i live in JC
-all for 30 bucks

can't wait for the next dinner in october.

just to add to the praise, her pear walnut bread is amazing. i'm looking forward to sampling everything else.
fyi, i asked celeste about her classes, and she said that, in addition to the ones on her schedule, she's happy to create personalized classes for four (or was it six?) or more.

the two women in hamilton park

Not too shy to talk


does anyone know anything about the two women who've been hanging out in HP lately? the brunette woman looks pretty rough around the edges, and the blonde woman seems sort of fancy. i nearly always see them together, laying in the grass or sitting/sleeping on a bench in seemingly total silence, often just staring into space.

i'm dying to know their backstory.
