Times Square isn’t known for fine dining. Tourist Central is full of chains and fast food. Not high on my list. But while attending Ad Week I decided to finally try a glass enclosed corner spot. What was it? Schnippers.
Schnippers serves up good old fashioned American fare. Burger, fries and shakes but with a twist. It’s healthy and organic. WHAT? That’s right American Classics using fresh ingredients. Ssshhh…don’t tell the kids.
It was a long day at Ad Week and I was tired and STARVING. I entered the glass doors, headed to the counter and looked up at the massive menu. This is going to be difficult. I know they’re known for their burgers but do I want one? I really want to try to eat as healthy as possible but can I in a place like this? I learn I can.
The cashier says their chicken sandwiches are very good, so I order one with a side of sweet potato fries. I pay and I’m handed my number on a stand. I find a table, sit down and wait anxiously for my meal.
Soon my number is called and I pick up my food by the grill. Looks good, but will it taste good?
Picture it…Griiled chicken with brie, arugula, red onion and herbed mayo on toasted country wheat bread sitting in a cardboard boat. Divine. And don’t forget, a dixie cup full of crispy sweet potato fries.
I was quite impressed with my meal and took most of my fries home. No room at the inn. What’s this I see? Schnippers just opened in my hood? I’m in trouble.
Happiness, $25 and under.
