Hudson Restaurant Week is almost TOO much fun for Jersey foodies. Top rated restaurants. Three or four courses. Under 40 bucks a person. But which to choose???
Well, one place really blew me away this year. If you want to do Hudson Restaurant Week right, make a reservation at Satis Bistro in Jersey City, NJ.
First of all, our waiter was delightful. He made excellent recommendations, showed us pictures of the local farm with furry pigs (yes, furry like sheep) that makes prosciutto, and happily topped us off with a healthy pour of wine at the end of our meal. We. Loved. Him.
The portion sizes were as generous as our waiter. In fact, they were not small “restaurant week sizes”. I had the Wild Mushroom and Onion Soup, the Cast Iron Roasted All Natural Chicken, and the German Chocolate Cake Sundae from the special 3 course menu for $35. The chicken was the star…crispy, juicy and served over the most luscious whipped potatoes I’ve had.
My fiancé, his sister and I decided to splurge with Satis’ famous charcuterie as well. We ordered two kinds of prosciutto (yes, from the fluffy pigs), a Taleggio cheese and a soft cheese from France that came recommended.
At the end of the meal, my only regret was not having a second stomach and several more hours to sit and sip the $5 wine special. Le sigh.
There’s a few days left for Hudson Restaurant Week so if they’re still available, make a res at Satis! Have you been to a Hudson Restaurant Week restaurant yet? Any recommendations? Shout it out below!
