Sasso’s Liquors & Delicatessen


New Sasso’s is open

Stopped in to see the new owners Frank and Mark (of the uptown Bagels on the Hudson), who re-opened Sasso’s yesterday.

A couple changes to note right off the bat:

  • The serve coffee
  • They have a full breakfast menu (including bacon! Hooray!)
  • Expanded hours are 6am-Midnight, 7 days week
  • They deliver

I only spent a few minutes inside, but one of the things I was concerned about was the roast beef. I truly enjoyed Sam’s store-cooked roast beef (which was purchased from Truglio’s). Frank told me about his secret recipe, how it’s seared in water (to retain juices), and injected with garlic. He seemed confident that their roast beef will be at the very least, on par. He also said that he’s absolutely open for suggestions and feedback from area residents. Good or bad.

Additionally, they’re planning a few renovations inside. New floors, some new fixtures and general sprucing up. For the most part, they want new Sasso’s to offer everything available before, and more.

Good luck guys, and can’t wait to try the RB!

1/12/2008 Update:

End of an Era

It’s official now. Sasso’s finally changed owners yesterday. New owners may re-open as soon as Monday.

Thank you for everything Rose and Sam! I hope the roast beef with the new owners is even 1/2 as good!

5/1/2007 Update:

So I confirmed with Sam & Rose last night that Sasso’s has a deal in progress to finally sell their shop after 44 years. They’re 1/3rd of the way of it being “signed, sealed and delivered”. They hope to be done with the process by the end of the summer, if everything goes well.

I have to say, as much as I’m extremely happy for them, I will certainly be heartbroken when they’re gone. The incredibly kind and wonderful people they are, along with the hard work they put in to provide (my) the neighborhood with a great place for delicious homemade food, reasonable prices and personable attention you just can’t get anywhere else will be missed. If the new owners can put in 10% of what Sasso’s provided uptown Hoboken, they should be alright.

Regardless if this deal goes through, please try and get down there and have a taste of some of their fantastic dishes. It’s my favorite roast beef in town, and I think they sell more chicken products than the Northeast quadrant of KFC. Never been disappointed there! Good luck, guys!

Sassos Deli is for sale in case anyone is interested!

[quote comment=”90669″]Hey Hoboken,have you tried Sasso’s crabcakes? Had a couple there last Friday, and bought six more to tide me over the weekend. They’re amazing! Just like everything else at this super-special place with super-nice people and a very talented chef, Stephen.[/quote]

Despite the fact that this looks like an ad, I’ll give it a try. I am always looking for a good crab cake. But if this is full of of “filling” and not much crabmeat, I am going to give it a huge thumbs down.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
