It’s Restaurant Week here in Hoboken and I celebrated by going to Teak on the Hudson tonight with my friend Danielle! It was the best decision of my
day week. In honor of Hoboken Restaurant Week, Teak had a special, pre-fixe menu (for two) for $39.99 — we were able to choose an appetizer, two entrees and a dessert (in addition to complimentary bread or edamame). There were also great drink specials; I got a Bombay Sapphire Cucumber Mojito… for $5! Awesome prices all around.
We started with the Fried Calamari, which came with two dipping sauces, and it was the perfect way to start the meal. It was a huge portion and absolutely delicious. I really liked how it had a spicy little zest to it. Then, for our entrees we both ordered the Filet Minon Wellington, which was served inside a soft pastry along with crumbles of gorgonzola cheese. It. Was. To. Die. For. Each bite practically melted in my mouth. This was my first time having filet minon and it was an amazing first impression. Finally, it was time for dessert… we got the Vanilla Fried Ice Cream, thanks to our server’s (much appreciated) recommendation. Just like everything else we ate, it was delicious. Great way to end the meal. All in all, this was one of the best meals I’ve ever had.
My friend and I were stuffed to the brim by the time we got the bill. On top of the delicious food, Teak’s atmosphere was very classy and relaxing. As you walk through the front door, you’re greeted with unique decorations and dim, changing lights, which set a nice mood. Also, you can’t miss the gigantic fish tank behind the bar, which I thought was really cool. Service was really great, too. I would absolutely, 100% go back to Teak. I honestly can’t get over how amazing it was.
Hands down, I give Teak on the Hudson 5/5 stars.
