When sharing food, basic table etiquette discourages double dipping or playing keep away with Grandma by tossing the plate to someone at the other end of the table. Remember meal manners with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of tapas, sliders, and drinks at Stir.
Stir’s menu promotes a social atmosphere, featuring selections handcrafted by master chef Duncan Omarzu, a 14-year veteran whose diverse culinary background shapes Stir’s eclectically delicious and shareable offerings. Social plates, Stir’s take on tapas, are small-portion selections meant to be tackled by a group, with selections ranging from the adventurous sautéed shrimp canapés accompanied by avocado and pico de gallo ($12) to staples such as mac 'n' cheese ($8). Mini-mealing ensues with an arsenal of sliders, including sirloin ($10), buffalo chicken ($10), veggie ($10), or crab cake ($13) varieties. Snag a platter for two and conquer mighty hungers with the meat, cheese, and olive Tuscan platter ($24), or net the Ocean platter’s seafaring menagerie of shrimp, scallops, crab cakes and ahi tuna sashimi ($44). Delectable bites can be paired with a variety of specialty martinis and wines, which provide a more socially acceptable method of tinting mouths red than kissing the Kool-Aid Man.
