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 or Facebook 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.

So excited about this place! We are Hollywood residents and are always up for a new restaurant and Drastix did not disappoint. It is kind of hidden over on Tyler Street, not on the main drag of downtown Hollywood so it's easy to miss. There is free parking one block over on Polk Street, and metered parking along Tyler.

No outdoor seating, which I think would enhance the restaurant and make it more popular as well as more visible, but maybe eventually that will come. Drastix inside is very attractive. Murals by a local artist, tables that are being refinished with artwork, cool bench style booths (rather than gross velvet cushions)...The place was funky and fun and looked very clean. All staff wore masks.

The food? The food was freaking great! It is mainly a shish kebab kind of place but there are also options for bowls, and several fun appetizers and sides. Lots of vegetarian options as well as different kinds of proteins which you can mix or just stick to one. I love the emphasis on vegetables! Everything was fantastic. The macaroni cheese bites were very tasty and easy to cut in portions to share. Those garlic shrimp were out of control good, next time I will order two plates. Everybody loved their kebabs. I had the bowl and almost opted not to have any rice in it but the rice was perfect, just the right amount of sticky! The waitress recommended doing only half rice because otherwise it's just too much for most people. So I got half salad and half rice and I threw in extra grilled veggies. Very healthy option that was big enough to eat leftovers the next day for lunch. I think my favorite thing about this place is the sauce selection. That makes it so much fun. They make their own sauces, and several were crowdpleasers among the five of us. Everybody agreed that the chimichurri was the best. A close second was the Parmesan Mojito. The almond mint one was also tasty. We didn't love the coconut peanut which is disappointing because I actually love that sauce at other restaurants but this one was just OK, the spicy option with better flavor than the mild. Oh I forgot to mention the Mulligatawny soup! She gave us a free sample of it and it was so tasty that we ordered a sampler bowl for all of us to try. It is a cream-based curry soup that has excellent flavor but I doubt it leaves you with much of an appetite afterwards so I would not get a bowl of it unless that is all you are planning to eat. We got the dessert sampler which I think is a great idea so everybody can try a little of everything. Most of us liked the bread putting the best, with the mochi bites another crowd pleaser. Mixed reviews on the pound cake bites and pumpkin bites (although I thought all 4 were tasty). Their coffees, whether iced or hot, were decadent. Apparently they get the beans from a local establishment down the street. Love that.

The service was very friendly and attentive although a little slow, but we were not in a hurry and they lose no points whatsoever.

This place has a great backstory, ask the staff about it. It has only been open for two months and I really hope that it survives. Go check it out today!

ART YOU CAN EAT ON

It started as an idea to collaborate with local artists and it became a significant part of our identity. Every table in our establishment was created by a different artist. We gave them a table top and the freedom to express themselves. The artists volunteer to do the tables so we really value their work, their time and their amazing generosity. Art needs to be appreciated and we hope our customers feel the same way we do. As you dine on any of our tables, you can learn about each artist and support them with a like, follow or even a purchase.
