Foxface is a window on the corner of Saint Marks and 1st Avenue in the East Village that specializes in pressed sandwiches with unusual ingredients. The menu changes here every single day, so you can keep coming back to try new things, like a delicious beef rib sandwich, their take on a cubano, and lamb mole. Since Foxface serves all of their delicious sandwiches out of a single window on the street, there isn’t any seating. But, for an excellent and truly eclectic East Village meal, we’d suggest bringing your food into the connected mead bar next door, William Barnacle Tavern.
