324 Washington Street, Hoboken, ...
At the end of 2015, Moran’s teamed up with young, innovative chef Vinicio Lantigua to transform the beloved bar into the first true gastropub in Hoboken. Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Vinicio studied at the French Culinary Institute and was most recently the executive chef at Stout FiDi in NYC. His impressive resume includes an executive sous chef position at Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse, and sous chef positions at The Oak Room at the Plaza Hotel and 3-Michelin star restaurant Jean Georges; before that, he was executive chef at upscale East Village Greek restaurant Pylos.
Vin’s food philosophy is simple: he takes classic dishes and imbues them with his point of view, using only high quality, fresh ingredients and innovative, health-conscious techniques.
For anyone who’s nervous about this Hoboken gem changing too much: the old Moran’s isn’t gone, and neither is the barman who started it all. He just thinks you ought to have a bitta grub with your pint.
