Antique Bar & Bakery prepares exquisite dishes with the flavors and technique of peasant Italian and French cooking. Located in a century-old Hoboken landmark, the space features an open-air kitchen that uses the original and iconic 30-ton coal-stoked oven as its centerpiece. Chef Paul Gerard, Filmmaker Joseph Castelo, and Nightlife Impresario Rocco Ancarola preserved the Hoboken heirloom, and added a flare of fun with décor designed around their lasting impressions of the super ‘70s. The menu specializes in chicken, fish, and steak, with block-buster appetizers, pastas, salads, and market vegetables. Favorites include Spaghetti Squash Carbonara with Crispy Poached Egg and Pancetta, Pumpkin Rice Balls with provolone fondue, and a two-pound, dry-aged, bone to bone cut, “Dirty Rib-eye” steak. Beyond dining, a lively bar roars every night until late, and the bakery is open every day early.
