Owner Michael Savvis and family have been in the restaurant business for over 20 years. He has built his reputation from his prior venues; Bistro at Redbank, Brix 67 in Summit, Parkside Bistro in Mansaquan, and Brix 560 in Tinton Falls. Michael Savvis has been very successful in the opening of all his restaurants, obtaining 4 star reviews from The Star Ledger, the NY Times, NJ Monthly, Home News and Asbury Park Press. His staff is well trained and always professional.

Savvis was interested in starting another restaurant, so he intently searched for the perfect location and a niche - a family style bistro with a full sushi bar and an Italian twist in Clark New Jersey. After traveling around the State, Savvis realized that most restaurants catered to tourists, and not locals who lived in the respective communities. This led the ambitious entrepreneur to create a place where locals could savor different types of cuisine all under one roof. Locals and visitors alike are fond of the family-friendly and kid-friendly Italian/Seafood Grill & Sushi Bar. Because of its unique menu and exciting atmosphere, Bistro 1051 has become a Union County favorite that locals take their out-of-town friends to.

On the menu is a myriad of creative salads and appetizers - such as calamari salad with miso citrus vinaigrette, pear endive with walnuts and aged Roquefort cheese, crab cakes, sweet glazed beef skewers, and an assortment of brick oven flat bread, creating a collage of eclectic fare.
