Venue Info

No, it’s not a socialist tanning salon. Pasties are basically English empanadas, and this little counter joint (and its brand-new food truck) aces them. Fillings range from traditional (beef, potatoes, and rutabaga) to modern (spinach, feta, almonds, and herbs) to sweet (spiced pumpkin and cream cheese). They’re then encased in crunchy-tender shells so golden-brown, it's as if this were a tanning salon after all.
