Round Up

Things are going well. We just had a great xmas off. We are getting ready to have a special New Year's (open til 3am, $1 PBR all day/night). We are also planning a 25 Singles for $20 delivery/pick-up special for the 31st and 1st.

We are running our Cream of Mushroom Soup this week. It's meat-free and great! It's super on Fries!

It looks like our New Year's Eve "party" may have some live music. We will know in a few days.
Either way, everyone is sure to have a good time as they drop in for some Schnacks before, during, and after their party plans!

Cooking in Brooklyn

It's more than official. 8pm on January 5th on Discovery Home and Leisure it's Cookin' In Brooklyn!


Our Split Pea and Ham soup has been selling well. We have also had a number of reservations for parties. In fact we'd like to think of Schnack as the best place to host your next dinner party. You know @ Schnack it will be cheaper, very tasty and no clean up!

Next week we unveil our Cream of Mushroom Soup!!

We are running Schav again. Our "base" for it is jars of sorrel made in Poland. We get them through Jubilat. We switched makers (on their advice) and it is a bit more tasty but it's also a bit more bits and pieces of the Sorrel in there. I'm not happy with all the bits and pieces but it will remain that way until we get a new batch of Sorrel in!

One Good Shank

We just ran our Lamb Shank special; we sold it out and now we have more. On a good sized Shank, a small bit of the veggies it was roasted with, some P.O.D., a small salad, and some Cranberry Mango Chutney for ust $7.50.   A friend said it was worth $15.00 someplace else, but I think for $15 you'd get a smaller portion and a lot more garnish! We just don't do $15 garnish. My idea of a good garnish is large Dentergems!

Brooklyn Rules!

News about building a new stadium on Flatbush and Atlantic reminded me of when Marty (our borough president) came into Schnack. He has enough energy to certainly be Brooklyn's biggest cheerleader.

Of course as much as I love Brooklyn, a friend moving into the city still ended up living on the Upper East Side! You can wine or dine them in Brookly,  but you can't make them live here!

Alan's Soup of the Week

Jim's mom came into Schnack the other day and wasn't happy that we didn't have soup on the menu. So Alan has jumped into the fray with some of his special soups.

Currently we are running a Vegan Mushroom and Onion soup.

Starting next week (Tues Dec 8th) we will run the following soups, 1 per week in the order as listed. There are 7 soups in all (counting the Mushroom & Onion Soup). Every 6-7 weeks we will follow the same rotation (as long as they sell!!)

  • Split Yellow Pea & Ham
  • Cream of Mushroom
  • Lentil & Kale Soup (Vegan)
  • Polish Gumbo with Collards and Kielbasa
  • Chicken Leg Soup with Noodles
  • White Bean and Bacon

  • From time to time we will still run our Schav (Sorrel) soup as well!
