If you haven’t already noticed, there is a gigantic, pointing hand in Hoboken. It’s not worn by a drunken sportsfan, and it’s not attracting attention to your latest stumble across the street. It’s there to guide hordes of starving pilgrims with a penchant for seafood to the newly reopened, opulent restaurant, The Clam Broth House.
The Clam Broth House, a Hoboken landmark for over one hundred years, has seen the likes of Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando, Woodrow Wilson, and Tony Bennett. It’s been the source of love, lust, and clam drunken nights. It has been remodeled, torn down, and restructured a hundred times; this landmark has more or less been caught in a constant state of change from 1899 to 2003- the year in which the legendary restaurant was finally condemned due to structural damage.
Danny Tattoli, born and raised in ol’ Boken, took the site under his wing in 2005 and has since transformed the demolished legend into a site recently reopened to outstanding reviews; spear headed by Executive Chef Marcos Brito, a man you may know from his previous stints at the Elysian Cafe, Amanda’s, and Four L’s, this House offers a “Risotto of the Day”, “Catch of the Day”, and late night bar options in
addition to an already packed menu, with such mouthwatering combinations as swordfish kabobs, baked lobster, Guinness fish and chips, lobster truffle mac n‘ cheese, or shellfish cioppino. Finally, a true European style seafood eatery that can compete with the best of New York City, right here in Hoboken.
The 7,000 sq. foot restaurant seats up to 300 while still maintaining its old world appeal; owner Danny Tattoli (also from the Four L’s) has designed a restaurant that offers an entire eating experience, complete with hand-carved mahogany bar, crown moldings, 48” tables, and stained glass walls. The Clam Broth House Corporate Center, conveniently located in the same location as our not-so-secret hMAG hideaway, has truly created what will become a Hoboken destination worth the journey; lavish decor, affordable, yet extraordinary dining, and memories to last another hundred years.
