Fodor's Review

The casual yet stylish setup at this Japanese yakitori grill and cocktail bar is designed to bring people together, and it works. The menu focuses on small plates to share. Opt for savory steamed buns and dumplings with assorted fillings, spicy meat skewers (the teriyaki-marinated chicken is to die for), tempura vegetables, or any of the many deep-fried kusiage delights. Fancy a dessert? They're part cocktail here—for example, lemon meringue or cookies and cream, alcohol infused. Good-quality wines, craft beers, and sake are also available. Located in the heritage-listed White Heart Hotel, the Snug has cozy nooks and crannies plus a sheltered courtyard with massive gas fire and barbecue. Lunch is served on Friday, but otherwise it's dinner only, from 4 until late.
