I haven't been to Snaps in a while and decided to take the family there tonight. It was a really great meal!  They keep adding to their menu and all the food looked great, tasted fresh and delicious.
A real treat was the meat pizza, we had the pulled brisket version and we loved it. Another interesting dish we tried was the Ramen Pho bowl, which was a huge portion, more like a soup, with meat and soft egg inside.
I would definitely recommend trying Snaps, especially if you haven't been there in a while, and we'll definitely be back.
The place was pretty full and I'm happy for them. Yussi the owner is a great guy, schmoozing with the customers...

They had a decent crowd but they couldn’t keep up because they had a terrible ordering process and were just plain slow. Bagel Nosh would have no line for the same amount of people.

I would assume that's why they only had a soft opening.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

There is some discussion of that beginning here:

Also, both Shloimy's and Simcha caterers have a "simcha in a box" option. I have recently done some research on this myself and some results are below:

Prime 95 $32pp+18% gratuity=$38 min 30
Glatt Bite $38 pp min 40
Dlux $37.50 pp min35
Yapchik $35 pp +250 min 40

Milchigs:
Pizza Place $35pp min 40       buffet style-pay for food minimum $450 plus I think $100 for room
Circa $30pp+80 min 45
Out to Lunch $35pp min 40
Ottimo $40pp min 30 or $35 pp min 40
Greenhouse Cafe $35pp min 30         Buffet $29.30 min 30
Kava $38pp min 30      Buffet $30 min 30
Feelings don't care about your facts
