The Snug Gastropub

The Snug Scoop OTPThe Snug Gastro Pub is the newest restaurant to Downtown Canton. Now where The Painted Pig once was, The Snug is owned by Chef Bryan Rose, Damien Mancini, and his parents Don and Linda.

Popular in Europe, a “snug” is a small, comfortable room in a pub. Damien spent some time abroad in Belgium and loved the concept, so he recreated it right here in Canton!

Inside The Snug, we loved the beautiful woodwork as well as the windows created by JD Glassworks in Woodstock. The front windows are removable too, making it feel like a porch!

The Snug Scoop OTPWe had a chance to pop in for a drink, an appetizer and lunch. Everything is made to order, so you can sit back and relax while they prepare your meal.

The menu is varied with lunch times like taco specials, wood-fired pizza, salads and a variety of hamburgers. We thoroughly enjoyed the short rib tacos and a custom-made pizza. Check out their full menu — we look forward to eating dinner there soon!

One thing you won’t find at The Snug: Miller Light. But don’t hesitate to try one (or two or three) of Damien’s favorite craft beers that he came to love while in Belgium. We loved the Moscow Mule Copper Mugs! They also carry ITP’s Old Fourth Distillery Vodka.

As far as the upstairs goes, Damien enjoys the atmosphere of Eddie’s Attic and hopes to recreate a similar feeling upstairs with live music and entertainment.

Here’s some extra Scoop about the Snug logo: there are two roses on it. One is for the chef’s last name, and the other is for Damien’s grandmother Rose who was the chef in their family.

This is Damien’s first restaurant. Chef and equity partner Bryan was also a partner at Taqueria Tsunami and owner/operator of Pitty’s Pat Porch located ITP.
