Restaurant notes: Snackbar living up to its name; wanna be on "Next Food Network Star"?

Lots of snacks and a chance for fame if not fortune.

  1. Snackbar, the cute spot at 20th and Rittenhouse, keeps wavering between "restaurant" and "bar." Now, you'll see paper over the windows. It's coming back as more of a bar, effective Thursday or Friday, says owner Jonathan Makar. He's ripped the tiny bar out of the corner (no, wiseguy, he didn't take a Chainsaw to it) and the new one will hold 10 to 12 seats. Menu has been revamped to focus more on apps, small plates, and items for grazing. I expect to post a menu later.

  2. All you fame seekers: The Next Food Network Star will be at the Loews on Aug. 31 to search for contestants for Season 7. See the flyer here.
