I love the east village. It’s so neighborhoody without being lame. Like, I don’t want that life where I’m walking down the street and have to wave to my neighbor Jim while he’s mowing his lawn for the 3rd time that day, or ever make eye contact with Susan each morning at 7am while she’s grabbing her paper. The EV manages that cool low key life, like, I know you and wattup without making me nauseous like those neighborhood ‘block parties’. Because my ideal day is watching a ton of kids ride plastic tractors and poop on slip n slides while I’m being fed numerous Costco quality hotdogs and pies. Barnyard is rad, they know pretty much everyones name, and have dope cheese. The owner cruised by while I was there and she was like, I’m selling puppies do you want one. So to sum this up, I bought some cheese, had an amazing meatball sub and played with 9 newborn french bulldogs.
Tip: the cuban sandwich is crazy and they’re always sold out of it so I guess get there early or something.
Tip: meatballs are home made and doooope.
Tip: side of chipotle mayo no matter what
When to come here: lunch ideally, but not on an inferno like day like yesterday. AC isn’t woke like that. Ideal for picnic situation. Sandwich and cheese, and hit the owners other shop brix around the corner for the wine tho.
