Brunch at The Hoboken Gourmet Company

It's been a while since we went to The Hoboken Gourmet Company, always discouraged by the wait in that small place that truly has a neighborhood feel. But the 4th of July came and allowed us to dine there for brunch. The issue with going to a restaurant on that day is often they are short staffed (they did a good job anyway and apologized for the lack of attention that we apparently got - did not really notice) or the shortage of ingredients (the Chef left the place saying "I need sourdough" and coming back minutes later with a back from a fine grocery store close by). That day I could not get any juice or the chicken and waffle that I was hoping to get, so I ended up with a salmon and goat cheese toast that was pretty good. The bread, fresh, was topped with a nice amount of goat cheese, salmon, beets and orange segments, with an orange vinaigrette. I loved the pairing of the cheese and salmon.

Jodi went for the avocado toast, served with pico de gallo, baby greens, tomato and guacamole in a white balsamic dressing. This toast was just ok, not having enough of what looked like a store bought guacamole.

The meal was ok and I liked the relaxed atmosphere of the place. It could have been an off day for the reasons I mentioned earlier, so I would still give it a try. 

Enjoy (I did)!
