The entrance to Sneaky Pete’s is right next to Stereo Garden’s. Work began on subdividing the building in March.
Stereo Garden owner GusBerketis teamed with a longtime friend and restaurateur, Niko Pilalis, on the project. Pilalis last operatedYour Mother’s House Kitchen Bar in Garden City Park.
“We’re really happy the way everything turned out,” Pilalis said. “We saw something very good here with a lot of potential. It all came together in the end; that’s the important thing.
Sneaky Pete’s, which the partners say offers relaxed, casual dining with quick service, is decked out in modern industrial — mostly metal and wood and decals.
There will ultimately be about 20 televisions on the wall.
The big draw is going to be weekends in the big outdoor beer garden, where there’s picnic tables, massive umbrellas and lawn games like cornhole and Jumbo Jenga all set up (more photos below.) The patio’s also pet friendly.
Sneaky Pete’s and Stereo Garden are two separate entities, though the partners expect to cross-promote each of the businesses.
The two traveled to Brooklyn, NYC and New England visiting brew pubs, beer gardens and beer halls to refine their concept.
As for the food, they recommend their special-blend of burgers — and grabbing some phenomenal finger foods.
“Nothing you’ll need a steak knife for,” said Pilalis. “But everything we’re doing has love in it.”
“And we’re going to let the menu evolve on its own,” said Berketis.
