Name that restaurant challange

Okay, so I read this article about a new restaurant that I really wanted to try. However, I forgot what it was, and, more importantly, why exactly I wanted to try it. Perhaps my fellow hounders can help.

What I remember is this: it's in (or very near) Highland Park. Or maybe in uptown on McKinney? It's new (<six months old). It has either like a Euro bistro type feel or is kinda like a deli. I think I remember the sandwiches sounding good. If I recall correctly, its focuses (is that the right word) on take out as much as dine in. Definately stuck in my mind as a lunch place (maybe because their only open for lunch, or maybe just because that's what the food sounded like). I think I read about it on the Dallas Observer site. Seems like a one-word name, too.

Not much to go on, but your help is appreciated.

  1. Hmm, are you talking about Snack on Henderson?

      Not Snack, which does sound interesting; however, have heard some meh reviews.

        It's an Avner restaurant ... that was all I really needed to know, but I also frequent a nearby business which has expanded. I was told that they dropped by to discuss Snack's serving apps at a soft opening event for the expansion, and were told that the restaurant was far too busy for that. That sounds like the attitude I still remember so well from Aurora ... is giving your close neighbors the finger really a good idea? Apparently they think yes. Meanwhile I have a list of 25+ other restaurants I want to try. Snack will probably be closed by the time I complete that list ...

    2. Sounds like Carbone's. Here's an article about them from the Dallas Observer:

          Actually all I did was Google "highland park dallas observer lunch" and it was the first result. Praise be to Google!
