  • Dino and Harry’s Named One of NJ’s Most Expensive Restaurants

    When it comes to fine dining in the Hoboken area, there are a few Mile Square spots that easily come to mind — Dino & Harry’s being one of them. For over two decades, Dino & Harry’s has graced uptown Hoboken with its classic, saloon-esque vibes, upscale presence, live jazz/piano music, and to-die-for menu. The steakhouse has been a favorite spot for both Hoboken natives and out-of-towners since 1991 {including NFL players Eli Manning + Mark Sanchez known to enjoy an elegant night out or post-football steak dinner}. If the celeb spottings didn’t tip you off to the pricey menu items at D&H’s — we’re about to, as Dino and Harry’s was just named one of New Jersey’s most expensive restaurants this year.

    Last month, Dino & Harry’s made NJ.com’s list of The 25 Most Expensive Restaurants in New Jersey, shedding light on some of NJ’s fanciest, swankiest spots, as well as roughly how much you should expect to pay at each one. The restaurant, which ranked at No. 20, accompanied a handful of others spanning from North Jersey {Café Matisse in Rutherford, The Manor and The Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange, Roots Steakhouse in Morristown} all the way down to Atlantic City {The Old Homestead, Bobby Flay Steak, and The Palm}. The most expensive listed was Restaurant Latour in Hardyston Township, where one couple can expect to pay an average of around $300 for a dinner {not to mention their wine list which casually includes a $57K red wine}.

    While a great deal of ritzy restaurants can be found just across the Hudson, the burgeoning Hudson County restaurant scene that houses Dino & Harry’s is slowly but surely making a name for itself and becoming a dining destination {if it wasn’t already}.

    On the menu, you’ll find a handful of seafood starters {grilled octopus, fried calamari, and oysters…oh my}, savory steaks {sirloin, filet mignon, rib eye, porterhouse} and other mouthwatering dishes {linguine smoked chicken, lamb chops, and ravioli}, as well as yummy desserts {the “Snoboken” sundae is a fave} to pair with a never-ending list of wines, whiskeys & scotch.

    The renowned restaurant, which has also been deemed one of the top three steakhouses in NJ, even offers private dining in an intimate, candlelit setting for up to 50 guests {the perf setting for a birthday dinner, anniversary party, rehearsal dinner, etc.}.

    So down to the $$$$. You can expect to pay somewhere around $140 for dinner {their most expensive dish is a 48-ounce Porterhouse for three, at $120}. Most entrees fall between $25 to $55, with appetizers ranging from $12 to $21. And, their most expensive wine is an $1800 Cabernet Sauvignon. But hey, we can dream, can’t we?

    PS: Since #Snowboken is a-coming this week, you may want to enjoy your very own Snoboken dessert — which is a Dino and Harry’s delicacy {alive well before Instagram hashtags were created}. At the end of the evening {after you’re stuffed with a 48 oz. sirloin and pinot and are listening to the piano player tinkle the ivories}, you must enjoy the best part: vanilla ice cream, chocolate fudge, marshmallow, crumbled Oreo cookies and shaved coconut.  

     Let us know what you’ll be trying on the menu.
