Art Of Food


It’s hard to share a cultural story without including food. For this project we’ve partnered with Downtown Springfield’s small-business restaurants to highlight the diverse and growing population of small businesses in Springfield. Art is consumed in many forms: Written, Visual, and through Music but have you ever stopped to think, there’s an Art in Food too?

Watch these videos to learn more about some of our restaurants and their owners: 


Nadim’s Mediterranean cuisine has been a favorite dining experience in Western MA since 2000. Operated by Nadim Kashouh, Nadim’s Mediterranean cuisine is known as the “go – to” Destination for authentic Mediterranean food. Nadim’s Mediterranean cuisine offers dine in, take out, order online, private parties, and catering.


It all started as a little closet. Now? Nosh is a thriving restaurant located at 1341 Main St, Springfield, MA! Restaurant Owner, Terri Skinner brings a little bit of local goodness to downtown. Watch the video to hear her story!


Panjabi Tadka, at 1688 Main Street, has been in business since 1990 in Springfield! They believe that a small restaurant, fresh food made to your order and good service add up to an experience you will want to go back to again and again.


Sun Kim Bop started with a Korean immigrant’s nostalgia for her motherland’s cuisine. Determined to deliver the essence of Korea’s famous street food while not compromising her stance on natural ingredients from scratch, Sun experimented with rice buns and kimchi. She now presents it as the Bop burger. It is a unique rice bun burger whose crunchy and soft rice buns with Korean BBQ style meat and assorted garden vegetables have already gathered a band of loyal followers with its explosion of flavors.


Shelia Coon believes in the magic of cookies and has the sweetest story to share about her business: Hot Oven Cookies, now located on Allen St. in Springfield. Cookie flavors are rotated to keep the menu fresh & exciting!
