Despite the name, it's possible to find at least a couple of things on the menu that don't come skewered at Stix. No, not the blueberry pancakes, nor even the farmers' salad, which boasts luminous slices of impaled fig. Citing the drinks—wine, cocktails, and, in the early hours, coffee—might seem like a copout, but in fact they're integral to the space's flexible concept. Owner Stathis Antonakopoulos designed Stix to evolve throughout the day from a caffeine depot to a quick-serve lunch joint to a spot for leisurely dinners, and his commitment to all these phases shows up in details such as the elegant espresso art.
The head barista's been known to travel all the way to Ecuador and El Salvador to source his beans, but most of the ingredients have a far shorter commute. While grilled meat on a stick doesn't necessarily convey a researched pedigree, "I wanted to reinvent it; to make it as healthy as possible," owner Stathis Antonakopoulos told the Wall Street Journal. Accordingly, he works with local farms—many of them organic—to stock Stix's larders with lamb, free-range chicken, and seasonal veggies. Such care continues in the kitchen: the bread is fresh-baked and the fries are hand-cut in house before being topped with feta, dunked into Greek yogurt, or used as a hilarious replacement for a straw.
