2308 E Union Street
Status: Opened at 4 pm yesterday
The Neighbor Lady, a new CD spot serving up vegetarian-friendly and traditional pub fare, opened to the public at 4 pm yesterday. The menu offers vegetarians more options than at your average neighborhood pub. It quotes Michael Pollan's dictum from The Omnivore's Dilemma: "Eat food. Not too much, mostly plants." Omnivores will be happy though, with menu items such as the meatloaf, reuben sandwiches, and beef sliders. The beer selection skews local: You can choose from two Hillard brews, a Leavenworth Hefeweizen, as well as Mac and Jack's. They also have a selection of local spirits and a full bar.
The Neighbor Lady takes over a storied spot that was previously occupied by Thompson's Point of View. The Stranger's Charles Mudede found the fried chicken there very evocative. The bar's owners already operate popular bar Twilight Exit in the neighborhood. The Neighbor Lady's hours of operation are daily from 4 pm to 1:30 am.
