The Tilted Kilt, a Celtic-themed pub and restaurant on the ground floor of the Metrostop luxury residential building on Ninth Street in Hoboken, has officially opened its doors to the public.
Destined to become a hot pub/restaurant thanks in part to its convenient location next to the Ninth Street/Congress Street Light Rail Station and the continued growth of the mile-square city’s northwest neighborhood, The Tilted Kilt will serve up a diverse menu of gourmet pub meals, Irish and Scottish-influenced American cuisine, savory appetizers, and a wide variety of craft beers.
Located at 800 Jackson St., the restaurant occupies 4,500 square feet of indoor space and features a huge outdoor patio.
“It’s a lot like a sports bar meets an upscale casual restaurant,” said Tilted Kilt franchise owner Nirav Patel, who also owns The Melting Pot on Sinatra Drive in Hoboken. “We’ve designed it so that it is a neighborhood hangout, a place where you can come to relax and socialize and where you can also bring your family for a good meal. We’re excited about the location and we’re delighted to start welcoming our first patrons.”
Mr. Patel also believes the tremendous outdoor space will distinguish his restaurant from others in town.
“I’m fortunate that I was able to open in a burgeoning part of town, one of the last places left in Hoboken,” Mr. Patel said. “It’s quiet, well-populated yet there’s no congestion. The light rail stops right at the door.”
With dishes such as the Irish Nachos, the Scottish Cheesesteak Salad, Maggie Mae’s Fish & Chips and Gaelic Chicken in an Irish whiskey cream sauce, the Tilted Kilt will appeal to a variety of tastebuds. A bevy of burgers, sandwiches and salads is also on the menu. More than 30 beers are on tap, all of which will be served by a wait staff dressed in white blouses, plaid kilts and knee-high socks complementing the Celtic theme. For the sports enthusiast, no fewer than 49 HD TVs will air just about every popular sporting event available.
Patel is also confident in his location on the ground floor of the 11-story Metrostop condominium building which has become one of Hoboken’s most desirable residential buildings. It features 113 expansive residences.
“We’re thrilled that Nirav has decided to open this exciting new restaurant and bar concept at Metrostop and believe it will be a tremendous complement to our building and the surrounding neighborhood,” said developer Dean Geibel. “We have no doubt that its addition to the neighborhood will add a new layer of appeal to the Metrostop lifestyle as we sell the remaining homes at the building.”
