First Look: Kolo Klub in Hoboken, NJ

"You can't really find a craft cocktail bar in Hoboken," said Ladislav Sebestyan, one of the two owners of Kolo Klub. "It's the kind of place where you can't really open a bar without a TV."

Come take a look at what they're serving. More

Good Bread: Marie's Bakery and Dom's Bakery in Hoboken

The rest of the country knows Hoboken for the sculpted sheet cakes that come from its most famous bakery.

I also liked other questionable things high school, but that's another story. Anyway, the man responsible for broadening my fowl-on-a-pizza horizon was Wolfgang Puck, who appeared on that show as part of its feature on Los Angeles restaurants.
