Farm Cart's brick-and-mortar location on Baxter, in the space that was The Sultan until very recently, is open for business, much, much faster than anyone could reasonably have expected. Breakfast biscuits (topped with sausage, egg, cheese, organic micro-greens, pulled pork, fried chicken, gravy, ham, jam, housemade pickles and more—not all on the same biscuit) are available all day. Lunch starts at lunchtime. It's open 7 a.m.–3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 8 a.m.–2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and closed Monday.
The space that was Big Family Cafe is now occupied by Mifflin House, a Peruvian restaurant that operated under the radar for a few years but now is official-like. Lunch specials run Monday through Friday and are well priced for things like lomo saltado, milanesa and aji de gallina. Also: ceviche, tallarin and what looks to be some pretty gorgeous plating. Lunch and dinner Monday through Friday 11 a.m.–9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday noon–9 p.m.
The Expat is turning 1 and hosting a mini-block party tomorrow, May 2 at 5 p.m., with a shrimp and sausage boil, plus oysters; $25 for food and two drink tickets. Cocktails on special for $5 all night, which is a fine, fine deal.
