The latest in a long line of eateries to hit Newburgh’s beloved Liberty Street, Toasted Newburgh takes a simple approach to food that offers a refreshing twist.
Founder Sam Satanovsky knows food: At 16, he worked as a dishwasher at a local restaurant and climbed the ladder to become a chef. He studied at Johnson and Wales University’s cutting edge culinary arts program and landed at New York City’s Michelin-starred NoMad restaurant.
NoMad’s cuisine is “rooted in French technique, but decidedly New York in spirit.” In comparison, Toasted promises to be rooted in New York technique, and decidedly Newburgh in spirit. The team at Toasted curated a lunch-all-day experience, with its doors opening this past June.
Some of the mouthwatering options include a shaved ribeye sandwich with arugula and sautéed mushrooms on toasted ciabatta, a snow pea and pancetta salad sprinkled with aged pecorino, and “Babushka’s chicken noodle soup.” Almost a dozen craft beer and cider options are available to order, including cans like the honey- and cherry-packed Zombie Killer cider by B. Nektar or the Molotov Cocktail, an Imperial IPA from Evil Twin Brewing.
Local ingredients speak the loudest in these dishes. Most of the items on the menu clock in at five ingredients or less, and nothing is drowning in an abundance of herbs, spices, and sauces.
Toasted’s backyard is the perfect venue to host small concerts and other activities. In the future, Satanovsky envisions a full-service bar with jazz bands playing and local comedians giving sets throughout the week. He hopes to expand the lunch concept into brunch and dinner menus in the coming months.
