WHAT IS DRASTIX?
Glad you asked. Drastix is a cozy family-run restaurant in Downtown Hollywood, Florida where the menu isn't the only interesting thing you can peruse. We know nothing brings people together like good food and interesting art…so we decided to merge the two. As soon as you walk in, the art hits you - from colorful art tables you can eat on, to an art exhibit on the walls that changes every month. Our goal is to support local artists in any way possible (more about that later). Now, back to the food! We specialize in skewers (Stix), hand-crafted sauces, savory bowls, delicious appetizers and heavenly desserts. Whether you’re a die-hard carnivore or healthy vegetarian, we promise there is something on our menu that will satisfy your cravings.
What type of food do we serve?
That’s a tough question. We don’t fall into any specific category, ethnicity or culture. When we designed our menu we looked for a variety of flavors and ingredients that worked well together and gave our customers lots of options. And along with our core menu items, we also offer “specials” that are available for a limited time. Make sure to follow us on Instagram
where we announce our rotating menu items. So the answer to the question what kind of food do we serve is…“good food” ;).
Our Story (the short version)
My name is Victor Choy and I am co-owner of Drastix. My partner in this venture is Chef Martin Moncrieffe, a seasoned veteran of the culinary world with over 30 years of experience in the industry. He not only brings professional qualifications to our kitchen, but a unique island flavor that is evident in our cuisine. My background in branding and marketing and his skills in the kitchen made for the perfect partnership. Our agreement is I bring them in and he makes sure they come back.
The idea of Drastix was born in 2014 when we decided to team up and create a business plan for a food truck. As we looked for food items that could be easily had while walking around, skewers (our Stix) made the most sense. And the name comes from Drastically Delicious Stix - DRASTIX.
They say “timing is everything” and at that moment our timing just wasn’t right. Fast forward to 2020 during a global pandemic that put us both in tough career situation, we decided to resurrect this project. But this time as a brick-and-mortar restaurant. Being a Hollywood resident for over 10 years made my choice very easy. I knew the area, the community and the potential this city has. We are extremely happy being part of the Downtown Hollywood Community and look forward to making a positive impact in our neighborhood.
