Satellite Bistro's brunch, lunch, and dinner menus play center stage to a stylish '60s interior. Diners can shuttle spinach-artichoke dip from bowl to mouth via tortilla chips ($7.99) before letting their tines frolic over the Orchid chicken, an oven-roasted bird breast hiding a stash of goat cheese and herbs and cloaked in orchid beurre blanc sauce ($13.99). While the breeze sweeps through your eyelashes on the outdoor patio, fuel midday arm-wrestling matches with catfish tacos ($9.99) or penne pasta in sun-dried-tomato cream sauce ($11.99). On the weekends, Satellite's chefs wake taste buds faster than weeds are plucked from the White House's garden with brunch dishes such as eggs florentine ($8.99) and ice-cream-battered french toast ($5.99). If dining on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night, patrons can plop into one of the bistro's mod chairs and tap toes to live tunes.

Satellite Bistro & Bar

In 1912, George Kamburis set sail from Patmos, Greece. Once in America, he made his way to Montgomery, Alabama, and began peddling ice cream from a cart. He eventually saved enough money to buy a fruit stand and then a café—the Coffee Pot. Sadly, that eatery burned down, but with the help of his brother, George soon opened a new restaurant, the Normandy Café. Today, George’s grandchildren have recreated his vision, this time giving the restaurant a contemporary name and contemporary cuisine: Satellite Bistro & Bar.

Although the bistro’s menu pays homage to the Kamburis family's Greek roots with Mediterranean dishes such as steak gyros and flaming saganaki cheese, its chefs draw inspiration from around the globe. Entrees of oven-roasted chicken, seared diver scallops, and bone-in french-cut pork chops are glazed in sauces ranging from an orchid beurre blanc to a cognac cream sauce. Latin influences show in fish tacos and enchiladas, and Asian traditions yield thai stir-fry and jumbo shrimp paired with mango and wontons. During weekend brunches, innovative creations such as ice-cream-battered french toast and panko-breaded salmon croquettes grace the table.

These modernized dishes are surrounded by equally modern decor dreamt up by Michael Hsu. Photomurals featuring an astronaut and a cityscape surround diners who perch on azure seats amid cherry-red countertops and stone pillars. On summery days, guests lounge on stuffed couches on the patio and pretend the sun is more than just a giant light bulb screwed into the sky. When the weekend comes round, musicians tickle the ivories on a baby grand in the lounge, evoking Ray Charles and Harry Connick Jr. As they listen, audiences sip wines from California and Argentina or martinis and specialty cocktails.
