What makes Carytown so great? It’s a little of everything. It’s $200 jeans and secondhand stores. It’s local quail at Mezzanine and it’s fried rice at the Eatery. In just eight blocks, you can get your bike fixed, get your pet fixed, get audited by Scientologists, nosh on fried pickles and see a movie for a buck-99.
