We decided to try The Brick, a new pizza place uptown Hoboken. I am sure the stakes are high for The Brick considering the number of pizza places in Hoboken, such as Benny Tudino's, Johnny Pepperonni or Basile's. So I was curious to see what would make it stand out.
The decor has nothing fancy, but there is a bit of warmth from the bricks on the walls.
I decided to try their homemade mint lemonade.
It was delicious, not too sweet, with the right amount of mint, making this drink quite refreshing.
With it, they brought us some olive oil with basil, where they added a nice amount of parmesan.
We ate it with some bread.
Looking at the menu, they have interesting dishes such as their own version of chicken wings, made with siracha sauce. They also have salad, pasta and pizza.
For the appetizer, we went for their caprese bruschetta:
It was composed of grilled eggplant, fresh tomato, basil, garlic, red onions, kalamata olives, fresh mozzarella and parmigiano cheese, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. I really liked it, the bread being soft and not too chewy and I loved the mix of flavors that made each bite unique.
Then, we ordered the margherita pizza:
It was made of tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil, drizzled with olive oil. This pizza being quite common, this is the perfect choice to compare to other pizzeria.
I liked it: the tomato sauce was good and the crust deliciously crispy, although I would have liked a bit more cheese.
The second pizza we tried was The Brick pizza:
This is not your regular pizza: it is made of prosciutto, pear, fresh mozzarella and Gorgonzola cheese on a white crust.
This was even better: there was a nice amount of gorgonzola that paired perfectly with the pear that added a delicious sweetness to the pizza, counterbalancing with the saltiness of the prosciutto. I would definitely reorder it!
I liked my dinner at The Brick and I am looking forward to go back there to try some other dishes.
Enjoy (I did)!
