Pork shank at Satis restaurant in Bloomfield
On the last Friday of each month, the indomitable Rosie Saferstein catches us up on the highlights of her table hopping.
My husband (and trusty photographer), Lowell, and I were eager to try the newly opened Satis in Bloomfield because we have always been fond of the original, which opened in Jersey City in 2010.
Satis means “enough/satisfied/sufficient” in Latin, and we certainly felt that way after our dinner.
Unlike Jersey City’s corner location, where cheese and salumi are enticingly displayed in the rear of the restaurant, Bloomfield has a more masculine ambience, with a long bar, two TVs, an antique wood icebox, tin ceilings, wood tables, dishcloth napkins, mirrors and vintage photos. The location has been a bar/restaurant since the late 1800s. Since 1976, it was the Firehouse Pub, and before that Braun’s Tavern.
