Special summer offerings at Menlo Park restaurants
The BARn — a place to snack and drink — is back at Flea Street
Emails Flea Street owner Jesse Cool: “The cute, but very messy, kind-of-itchy straw bale seats from the former BARn are gone! Sit in comfy chairs with cocktail tables. Bring a group or meet new neighbors at the friendly community table. No reservations — just come on by. Opens at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Last call is 7:00 pm.” Snack examples shown above.
