THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Satchels Market Restaurant Review: Smooshed into a corner of a characterless strip mall, Satchels Market is the princess in the presence of a frog. Intimate, buzzy with the hums and murmurs of chatter, and bohemian-chic with exposed brick, mismatched wooden tables, pistachio-hued walls mounted with local art and a chalkboard menu written without an artist's touch, it's the kind of restaurant that feels well-worn and comfortable. Chef Jens Patrik Landberg, a Swede whose contemporary menu is global and playful, turns out a weekly changing short board of seasonally focused dishes. An organic beet salad, dotted with nubs of basil-infused Haystack Mountain goat cheese, gets a citrus jolt from grapefruit wedges, while the ahi, cubed and stacked, is crowned with avocado and dressed with a hot and salty Dijon mustard fused with soy. The burger, paved with a roasted red pepper relish and herbed aïoli, is thick, judiciously seasoned and dribbling with juices tinted crimson. But the biggest treat of dining at Satchels is the Saturday night chef's table, a prix-fixe multi-course meal that changes each week, but always offers satisfying savory dishes and desserts.
