If you’re stomach’s growling, you’ve got to try one of these restaurants near Bloomfield, NJ. There are so many delicious restaurant options in our area, but these three are some of our favorites.
Give them a taste and see how you like them!
Mesob | Facebook
Mesob is our first choice for authentic Ethiopian cuisine. They make all their food using fresh ingredients seasoned with spices imported directly from Ethiopia. They also import their coffee beans from Ethiopia and roast them fresh on-site.
Mesob is named for the traditional Ethiopian tables where families dine. These wicker tables have decorative dome-like covers and line the front windows of the restaurant. You can choose to enjoy your meal at a Mesob or at one of their regular tables.
Their menu is extensive and includes a variety of vegan options, as well as omnivorous fare. One of our favorite dishes is the Dinich Wet, which simmers potatoes in a tasty spicy sauce. This is served on Injera (traditional Ethiopian bread), or on rice by request.
MishMish | Instagram
MishMish serves up healthy Mediterranean cuisine made with seasonal and locally sourced food. You’re sure to feel right at home with their friendly service, while enjoying the modern design of their décor that feels especially high-end and trendy.
They’re open for lunch and dinner and also welcome online orders for diners who want to take their dish to-go. They accommodate all kinds of dietary needs, with vegetarian and vegan options and the ability to make most dishes gluten free upon request.
We highly recommend the Sabich sandwich. This serves smoked eggplant spread, feta cheese, tahini sauce, a boiled egg, tomatoes, Zaatar, and lettuce in a pita. We also love their Dang, I Woke Up Late! menu for a brunchy fare, like their Israeli Breakfast platter.
Star Tavern | Facebook
“The Star,” as it’s known in the neighborhood, has been owned and operated by a member of the Vayianos family since 1980. However, Star Tavern has been a community staple for more than 65 years, and you can feel its strong ties in the lively and familial atmosphere.
They serve their thin crust pizza hot, topped with perfectly melted cheese on a crust with just the right amount of crunch. Their pizzas can be as traditional as a regular cheese, as creative as their White Spinach pie, or as sweet as their Apple Pie pizza.
In addition to pizza, they also serve up specials and entrees like their Pasta Marinara, Broccoli and Cavatelli, and their Roast Beef au jus sandwich. Don’t forget to order a draft beer or soft drink at their well-stocked bar.
