Across the Hudson in the hip town of Hoboken, New Jersey, is the newly opened Zylo at the W Hoboken Hotel & Residences. A Tuscan steak house, Zylo offers everything from a softshell crab appetizer to gnocchi with lamb ragout and roasted fennel to bronzino with tomato and black olive salad (all unbelievably tasty). And the design is just as delicious. Bentel & Bentel Architects/Planners designed the fun 50-seat waterfront space, which is filled with elements including leather upholstery, blackened steel and bronze accents, back-lit glass walls, and colorful artwork. As I sat there and ate the amazing food, I couldn’t stop running my fingers along the bristled broomheads that were stacked on the wall behind me in the main dining area nor could I stop touching the green, velvet-like upholstery on the banquettes. The views from the restaurant are great. I’m a people-watcher, so this restaurant is just my style. Frank would be pleased.
