I am not talking about food here really. Usually the better the ambiance, the more "mediocre" the food. I am more of a foodie but sometimes ambiance wins with the wife ; )
Check this link out:
I would definitely not put Nicholas in that list, although the food is amazing.
Budda Khan is definitely a cool experience! And the avenue is a pretty trendy spot (not my cup of tea but a nice establishment.)
A few others that come to mind....
On a nice clear day, Off the hook for afternoon drink and quick bite to eat is pretty cool (over looking NYC)
I like the Shogun Legends fish tank as well...a really neat set up there.
Fernandes upstairs room has a great vibe and cool Spanish decor.
Anyway, with food aside, lets here some thoughts....
I am sure there are quite a few places in hoboken but I don't really get up there.
