New to Larkin Square and scheduled to open as early as next week is Square 1 Sandwiches. Built in a beautiful old Airstream Trade Wind Land Yacht, the eatery looks as bold and bright as the elevated food court that seconds as a back drop and band stand. The mostly-stationary food truck (trailer) is also located next to the newly opened Filling Station restaurant with a sixteen seat patio for patrons to share. Either that or sit at one of the many colorful lawn seats, some of which are now shaded with gigantic patio umbrellas.
Although I arrived just moments ago, and The Larkin Filling Station (see more) was beginning to wrap up for the day, I did manage to grab one of the only menu items that they had not sold out of during the lunch rush. I left with my to-go meal and sat up on the bandshell overlooking Larkin Square, listening to the music being piped over myriad speakers throughout the district while watching Square 1 Sandwiches being installed.
When the shiny silver sandwich shop opens next week in Larkinville, it will feature curry turkey, Cuban pork, ginger beef, Thai chicken, Jerk avocado, Greek artichoke, soy portabella and egg and cheese sandwiches (among other interesting creations). The eatery will serve espresso shots, an Americano, macchiato, cappuccino, latte, mocha and will even offer beer.
