Bet you never did your laundry in this type of establishment. The front is a Cuban restaurant, and the back is an open-air laundromat. We sat in wicker chairs watching the world go by, eating an incredibly delicious pork panini, reading the NY Times, and shooing away the chickens as the washing machines did their job.
Really, there were chickens and roosters wandering about, too! So, we now know the TRUE answer to that old canard, why did the chicken cross the street? To do her laundry, of course. Next week we plan to try the Margaret Truman Launderette!
