If you happen to walk too quickly, you might just pass by Snack without ever noticing it. The tiny cafe that serves rustic style Greek food with a contemporary spin is located just west of West Broadway on Thompson Street in Soho. The quaint space can only be described as cozy as it has very limited seating but rather than confining, it actually feels quite homey. I'm a big fan of their sandwiches and I'm not really a sandwich person. We usually get the lamb and the tuna and I'd have a tough time choosing a favorite between the two. The lamb is braised and served with tomatoes, roasted red onions, roasted tomato aioli and arugula on ciabatta bread. The herb braised yellowfin tuna is served with artichokes, tomatoes, cucumbers, portobello mushrooms, scallions, shaved kefalotiri cheese in a lemon vinaigrette on ciabatta bread. The lamb is hearty and comforting while the tuna is refreshing and satisfying. Both are bursting with fresh and delicious flavor. Their spanakopita (spinach pie) is quite tasty as well. I've had a consistently positive experience with their service which is friendly and relaxed. This is the perfect spot to stop for a rest if you happen to be shopping in the area and if it's summer make sure you get the mint lemonade. I should mention that Snack has a variety of vegetarian options on their menu and they also serve dinner which I'd love to drop in to try one of these days.
