Sloppy Seconds: The Friendly Confines
From Cafe Brazil to Jimmy John's, we covered a handful of spots near and dear to our hearts here at City of Ate's Oak Lawn H.Q. Dave, meanwhile, highlights a place where it's no problem feeling right at home. But if there's one lesson to draw from the week, it's this: get out of New York. Even if you're in Oak Cliff.
