The Uptown part of Hoboken can be challenging for restaurants and when Charrito's Uptown closed, we were wondering how long the space would be vacant and then what type of restaurant would open there. And then came Tosti, a breakfast and brunch place. Nice decor, much brighter than the very dimmer Charrito's, it has a relaxed atmosphere.
Unfortunately, at this point, I am not that convinced, our experience being so so, food and service wise. Here is what we tried:
Hot chocolate: decent but after you try the one at Zafra's, it ruins any other hot cocoa you try...
Smoked salmon toast: made with scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, sourdough bread, capers and creme fraîche. First of all, the capers: I love capers but do not like caper berries and they should understand the difference as when the waiter asked me if I was ok with capers, I was thinking about the former. Then, their creme fraîche was really tart, definitely not the taste of a good creme fraîche that is always great with smoked salmon. Last was the salmon that was salty...So, not a good dish for me.
Biscuits: a must have, although I wish they were a bit hot so the butter would have melted.
Scrambled eggs: good, not dry.
Green salad: just a bit overdressed.
So, I was not that thrilled after we left. I will probably wait few months before giving another shot...
