SNACK is Open on Henderson (Photos)

From the outside of the building, you might recognize tell-tale remnants of the old facade of Horne & Dekker: the patio with its big garage door to the rest of the dining area, the bar that runs the length of the place.

But once inside, the similarities end.

SNACK (2323 N. Henderson), an ode to global street food from the folks at NOSH Euro Bistro, is dressed in black and red with a long bar and two separate prep stations, one for raw and charcuterie, the other for hot dishes. From the perky hostess to our friendly waiter, the service was refreshingly fun.

The snacks at SNACK come on shareable plates, in small portions like little appetizers. Perfect for foodies, this tapas-style situation allows diners to play, trying a little bit of everything that sounds good.

Crab fritters were accompanied by an addictive red curry sauce. For the more carnivorous, there are meaty options like Wagyu Beef Kefta and Moroccan Lamb Burger Snacks (served in two miniature, cute-as-a-button McDonald's-style containers). All snacks are priced between $6 (for a super cheesy Roasted Robiola Bread), to $12 (for what I can only assume is a pork three ways type of number called "Three Little Pigs").

Here's hoping SNACK has more staying power than its predecessor, though I will surely miss those Horne & Dekker biscuits. I recommend heading over to SNACK with friends, either on the patio (for some Henderson drunk watching) before it gets too damn hot, or to sit in Ken-doll-look-alike Brendan's section, and take his advice when it comes to cocktails.

SNACK is closed on Mondays, but makes up for it with Saturday and Sunday brunch service. Personally, I'll be back for brunch, specifically to see about a fried egg sandwich and some coconut griddle cakes.

I came here on its opening day and enjoyed myself quite a bit.  Needless to say, I will be back.  I enjoyed the Brackenridge on tap, the scotch quail eggs, the curry crab puffs, and the fried brussel sprouts.  This place is not for the weak of spirit, or those with a lack of imagination.  It's a tapas bar, so if you're looking for a full fledged meal, go elsewhere unless you want it in bits, which is my preferred method of eating any how.  Then I can pick and choose and eat at my own pace.  Tip o' the hat!

A group of us went for a birthday dinner here last night. This place was TERRIBLE! Ruined my friends birthday. There were 7 of us and each of us hated it. Here is why:Food:Subpar to terrible. Paella was the most disgusting thing I have had in a long time. Someone at our table compared it to licking a dead fish. Portions were incredibly small and over priced. Brussels sprouts were just friend leaves. We all left hungry and disappointed. And poor - talk about EXPENSIVE for the crap you get. Not one thing tasted above say... McDonald's quality. I was expecting so much more. Customer service:Worst customer service I have ever had and not by our poor waitress but by the MANAGER! First of all, she was dress so inappropriate in a lace up tube top (ew!) and she was incredibly rude (at one point she was even arguing with someone at our table!). She should be fired with the way she treated us. One highlight? The bartender. She was nice.Decore:Looked very cheap in there. Super casual. We were all dressed up for the birthday dinner and we felt extremely over dressed. Felt like a fast food restaurant -- a Taco Cabana maybe? A lot of people came in and you could tell they were disappointed and felt over dressed. Way too casual for the prices they charge. Would be one thing if the food was actually good.I frequent Nosh quite a bit and I cannot describe the disappointment I feel after our night at Snack. Completely ruined our night and my friend's birthday. I have never left a restaurant feeling so ripped off. Not to mention that the manager offered to give us some plates because our Paella was so bad (we were all actually afraid of food poisoning) and then she proceeded to CHARGE us for all of it. Then argued to us about it. By far the worst restaurant management I have ever seen.

Hopefully they won't steal wages from employees like they did when NOSH first opened up

McDoom-

disagree.  the synergy with Veritas alone will support the model.

15 months over/under to close. I'll say over, but not by too much.

If you were overdressed that was your fault.  You felt hungry when you left? It's a TAPAS restaurant - you know, snacks!  Sounds like you should stick to McDonald's because it sounds like you wouldn't know quality if it smacked you in the face.

Right, and it's not like it's Avner & Stevens' first rodeo. Both their Nosh locations do pretty brisk biz. Having worked in that strip center for a while, I'd say Snack is a perfect fit--if it can't survive, I don't know what else would.
