With Saint Patrick’s Day almost here on Friday, March 17, Rivington residents who want to celebrate with some authentic Irish food rather than just some typical green beer have lots of options in their Hoboken neighborhood.
Throughout the area, there are tons of Irish restaurants that will make your taste buds feel like you’re in Ireland – even if you don’t have a drop of Irish blood in you.
Carpe Diem, located at 1405 Grand Street in Hoboken which is only three blocks from your Rivington apartment, is a convivial haunt featuring Irish pub grub and a large beer list, plus a fireplace and outdoor seating. Established in 2006, this Irish restaurant offers a more upscale take on traditional Irish dishes.
Try their gruyere and mushroom burger, which features a medley of sautéed mushrooms smothered in gruyere or the Claire’s Fave Burger, which has melted gorgonzola cheese and tumbleweed onions. This corner bar and restaurant also has dishes of other cuisines, such as their chicken stiry-fry and rigatoni alla vodka, if you’re visiting with someone not so keen on Irish food!
McSwiggan’s Pub, located at 110 1st Street in Hoboken which is about a mile and a half from your Rivington apartment, is a classic Irish pub features burgers, brunch, sandwiches, entrees and all-you-can-eat specials.
A restaurant filled with deals every day of the week, they have $5 all-you-can-eat wings on Mondays starting at 9 p.m. as well as Miller Lite pitcher specials and live music. Check out their online calendar to see what else is happening at McSwiggan’s this week!
