West New York?

I'm having dinner with a friend who just moved to West New York and we're trying to find some place to eat dinner. We want delicious food only, be it a great Mexican joint, great Chinese or even a good pie! Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

EmilyMarie, I haven't been there lately, but I like Beyti Kebab in Union City. You pass by the meat on the way in, so if you and your friend are vegetarians, this might be a problem. The atmosphere isn't much in the first dining room, but they sometimes have a belly dancer and music in the other dining room, and the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Note, per the website, they're now BYOB.

I think your best bets in the area are:

La Sorrentina (Italian) on Bergenline in North Bergen

Brooklyn's Pizza in Edgewater (Target mall River Road)

Sabor for higher end Latin (North Bergen River Road)

Turkish: Beyti Kabab

Argentinian: Chimichurri Grill on Bergenline

Roast Chicken: Pollos a La Brasa Mario (Bergenline @43rd)

There are a lot of good (not great) Cuban, Columbian, Mexican, etc places on Bergenline Ave. I tried a bunch and they are all decent and inexpensive but I never found any to be outstanding. My favorite is a Cuban restaurant on the corner of 46th and Bergenline called Manollos La Cachita which is very good for fried red snapper / broiled filets of fish. They have a full menu but I generally try to stick with the fish.

Give those a try. Just stay away from the PF Changs, Chart House, ETC

There's great stuff in Hoboken too...which is just down the road from West NY....

plus it's a cool town (like a little NY)...great for walking before or after dinner....with lots of after hours places.

Not sure if this counts, but Mi Bandera on 31st (I think) in UC has been my family's jumping-off point for very good Cuban with a focus on steaks. I've had steakhouse steaks and they don't compare to a good Cuban shell steak. Las Palmas (6153 Bergenline Ave.) is also very, very good for a more down-home Cuban fare.

Do you know if Chimichurri Grill has moved? or is closed?

We just spent a good half hour walking from 70 - 79th street in Bergenline (according to search it's on 77th) but could not find it?

I Just drove by and Chimichurri Grill has been replaced by another restaurant. It was 2 blocks down from the park on the same side. There main location is in Manhattan (around 9th avenue & 43rd).
