Barracks Row Main Street
Barracks Row has tons of great food options. Our current favorite is the Chinese-Korean place called Chiko. We also like Matchbox (family friendly pizza), and Nooshi (for take-out and dine-in Chinese / Indonesian fare).
“This is perfect destination for a solo (or social) walk on a nice day. And be sure to take a good look at the STATUE here. Controversial today... it's important to know it was commissioned and paid for by modest donations from former slaves. And the man depicted here with Lincoln: his name was Archer Alexander. His story is incredible. If we get a chance to talk during your stay, ask me about the extraordinary friendship between Archer and my great-great-great grandfather... and how it led to Archer being the model for this statue.”
“The neighborhood pretzel bakery is a hidden gem in our neighborhood. Head on over in the morning and you are bound to find families and dogs hanging out in this bakery across from a local grade school. It has great pretzels and is quite the popular hangout for locals.”
“This is a no-frills dive bar with a school bus bar upstairs. They often screen random old movies and generally keep a low-key clientele. I love reading at this bar. ”
