I had my eyes on this place for a while. Every time I would see the paper covering over the windows, I wondered how many more days until it opened up. And then one day while walking by, we saw that the paper covering was gone, and the place was open—the place was Matt & Meera.
My South Asian heritage clearly had its biases, as I looked at the name and thought Meera…I wonder what kind of food they will serve?! As its name suggests, it’s a indo-fusion restaurant. Just opened in Hoboken, New Jersey on June 23rd, and is a comfortable home feeling with a contemporary twist.

I gotta admit, when I first heard of Zengo, I didn’t think it’d be so great (the name doesn’t lend itself much to first impressions). That and its dank location (40th and 3rd…I just think…suits…and…buildings…and…and yeah that’s also the first time I ever used “dank” on this blog). Plus the outside pretty much looking like a giant misplaced club made me a little dubious. But walk inside, and you’ll begin to realize all that is misleading (claustrophobics rejoice, this place is huge).
