The Blue Barn

The Blue Barn deli
So far my job is going great! It's only been a few days, but I love where I work and the people I work with. Since I don't have a kitchen and don't have a mini-fridge yet I've been eating out for dinner. Last night I checked out a restaurant in Corte Madera called The Blue Barn.  It's a fabulous little deli that makes you feel like you are indeed in a barn. There is a lot of wood and their menus are completely blackboard and chalk. They specialize in "sandos" (sandwiches), salads, soups, and grilled cheese. They also have a large wine and beer selection.
deli sandwich from The Blue Barn I ended up ordering the Rajin' Cajun sandwich. It had peppered turkey, artisan ham, sopressata, smoked gouda, pepperoncinis, pickels, arugula, and cajun ailoi on a ciabatta roll. The sandwich was almost $10, but it was so large that I was able to make two meals out of it (Lunch!). At the last minute I realized that their soup of the day was Black Bean and on a blustery cool day that sounded perfect. I'm so glad I did! It was fabulous. I was a little surprised that their small was $6, but it was humongous (12 oz) and could've been in a meal in itself.
Overall I was very pleased with the Blue Barn. Some things that I can't wait to try when I go back is are their spring salad (with, arugula, roasted asparagus, feta, and a strawberry poppyseed vinaigrette), the Burrata grilled cheese (an Italian caprese style sandwich), and the truffle sando (roasted turkey with a truffled garlic aioli. )
