Small Plates At Snack

by Steven Doyle

Sometimes when you are out dining you simply want a snack. Small plates is actually my favorite way to dine, you get so many different flavors packed into one meal. If variety is the spice of life then Snack Global Kitchen and Bar is a whole lot of living.

We stopped into Snack late Sunday evening just before closing and the staff was winding down from a busy day. Sous chef Cody Sharp was at the helm and we are always pleased to see this firecracker of a chef.

First Look: Snack

We had the first look at Snack, the new restaurant brought to you by the team of  Avner Samuel and Jon Stevens who have been knocking it out of the park with Nosh.  Snack is located on Henderson in the vacated Horne and Dekker space and has undergone a tremendous transformation.

Stevens has been working on the menu for Snack and making preparations for the opening at the same time he was revamping the Bailey’s kitchen. Stevens admitted all the work has taken a toll on him but he is happy that Snack will be opening its doors at 4pm tomorrow (May 22, 2012) serving cocktails with the kitchen swinging open at 5pm.  Continue reading
