Top Date Dining: Gentlemen, how many times have you prepared for a date with that special someone and are panicked on where to go? Look no further than Michael Anthony's along the Hudson in Jersey City New Jersey. With glittering views of mid-town and downtown Manhattan along a pristine marina - your date will certainly be impressed. The food served here is just as pleasant as the view. The filet mignon bruschetta was original and delicious. We also suggest the fresh greens salad, with sliced veal, plum tomatoes, red onion, baby mozzarella in a tasty balsamic vinaigrette. The lobster ravioli was decadently delicious. Their famous "Winter Mojito" (spiced rum, mint, limes, drunken cranberry's, club soda & simple syrup) will have you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.
