Forget truffles, sliders and cake balls — the biggest food movement of late is the proliferation of healthy, prepared take-out or delivery options.
The latest entrant in this field is Austin import Snap Kitchen, just opened at the corner of Kirby and Richmond.
Snap sources fresh, local, organic ingredients for their chef-prepared dishes and has a certified dietician in-house to consult with customers and oversee options for special dietary constraints, including gluten-free, paleo diet, vegetarian, diabetic friendly, lower sodium and non-dairy.
Snap offers breakfast, lunch, dinners and snacks a la carte priced from $3 to $13 per meal, but also has a more structured program called Snap Commit, featuring three weeks of Snap meals (three meals and two snacks) plus an introductory consult with a Snap's dietician and two follow up visits, with no cost other than the food.
And parents on the go who hate to descend to Happy Meal desperation will love the Snappy Bites kids' menu.
Snap Kitchen's Houston team includes Doug Karabinas, Bradley Radoff, Greg Lempel, and Martin Berson, who between them have experience with Benjy's, Churrascos and Escalante's. Chef Basin Naga, a veteran of the Vallone group, will run the kitchen.
Check it out sooner than later — with Snap in a soft opening until Sunday, all food items are currently 25 percent off.
