We stopped into Snappy Patty's this past Friday evening. It was only their second day after opening their doors so I'm offering this very early report with more to come after additional visits.
The space is great, funky, cute and intimate. Colorful stylized paintings adorn the walls and a corrugated steel bar flanks one side of the restaurant. The kitchen is open but towards the back so you get a limited but sufficient view of the cooking action.
The menu is touted on their website as "Upscale contemporary American with a world influence". It is also touted as "Fine Dining meets Burger Joint" and on the menu itself... fun food. There's an inherent problem here with, what seems to be, a menu that doesn't actually know what it is. That being said, there is much to like on the menu, much to try and prices that are easy on the pocket book.
Think small plates.
We kept it simple. We ordered patty melts and fried chicken. The patty melts are quite good but it should be noted, these are sliders. $6.25 gets you 3 small burgers (there are 6 options) or you can order the sliders individually at $2.25 each. The fried chicken is a medium-sized bowl of buttermilk marinated BONELESS chicken thighs, about 5 or 6 pieces. Served with Bourbon BBQ sauce. The fried chicken was a stand out even though the crispy thin batter had a tendency to fall off the meat. At $9 I will order this every time I step into the place.
Service was friendly and exactly what you would expect from a second day, a little scattered. We saw some delicious looking salads come out of the kitchen and I look forward to trying other things on the menu.
My major criticism at this point is the Patty Melt itself. The homemade bread is awesome, the burger delicious, the toppings are great, now please give it to me in an adult version. Sliders will not cut it. I want a fat juicy SINGLE grown up sized patty melt.
They will be adding brunch service soon and the menu is already up on the website. I can imagine them building a huge brunch following as this neighborhood is woefully absent of any brunch spots.
