Mutzfest 2016 Review {16 Photos}

The 4th Annual Hoboken Mutzfest took place yesterday at the Hoboken Elks Lodge, and there was no shortage of delicious grub on hand.  The event is put on by Hoboken Family Alliance, and benefits many great programs in town including the Hoboken Bike Camp for Individuals with Disabilities, which takes place every summer.  There was no competition this year, instead it was a celebration of incredible food and creativity – but let’s be honest, we the eaters were the real winners!  We already can’t wait until Mutzfest 2017!

This year’s participants included:

  • Losurdo Bros
  • Luca Brasi’s
  • Margherita’s
  • M&P Biancamano
  • Rosticeria Da Gigi
  • Tony Boloney’s
  • Vito’s

Good thing it was unseasonably warm, as the line stretched over a block for most of the day – all the way down to Maxwell’s!
