At first, I was upset when Fredi took over the space that formerly housed my favorite mexican lunch spot ($5 lunch specials!). I bitterly chalked it up to gentrification and paid little attention to the cute little wine and sandwich bar that emerged. Until my coworkers came into the office with these incredible meatloaf heros.
I decided right then that I was wrong to judge Fredi and that I needed one of my own. Fresh baked breads, roasted peppers and a meatloaf that reminded me of home won me over. Delicious skinny handcut fries as well. Just the other day I went by for another and found them shuttered. Far too soon. Here’s to hoping they pop up somewhere else.
