Lorenzo - likely one of the best mortadella sandwiches I’ve ever had. The bread was fluffy but with enough of a crisp to provide structure. While I didn’t notice their Parmigiano pâté, the mortadella was nice and the pistachio, roasted red pepper & basil mix was a great textural and freshness contrast. Would definitely order again.
Tonno - I’m a sucker for a bright tuna salad and this one was studded their giardiniera mix and lemon zest. My mistake was that I let it sit on the box for the drive home so the bottom half of the bread sogged out. It was still delicious.
how was the wait? i want their sandwiches, but the last two times i’ve gone they had really let the line get out of control. we waited 45 minutes for two sandwiches, which came out fifteen minutes apart.
Oh, what a coincidence! I love tuna salad and had one yesterday, as well! I couldn’t call it bright (and there wasn’t actually a ton of tuna flavor b/c of all the other stuff inside), but it was certainly tasty. Ludivine in West LA:
Green Cheek gets deserved attention for their IPAs but I agree that they kill it across the board. Recently had and loved their Brown Ale. You might not usually expect excitement from an American Brown Ale but this one totally delivered - like a more robust Dark Mild.
Yes “Shhh… Ryan’s Award-Winning Brown Ale” or something like that. I hadn’t had a good brown in a while and kind of viewed the style as an afterthought. Didn’t see it to-go so I got the Work Amongst Yourselves dark lager, which is very nice, in its place. Will check out that Other Brian next time I’m down there.
Kei Supperclub. Feb 24th was their last night until they figure out next steps. Excellent service. There was essentially 1:1 ratio of diners to workers including the kitchen staff. The manager said the entire month of February sold out in 5 mins. We enjoyed all of the drinks we ordered. Didn’t do the pairing.
Pann’s. Oldies playing. Diverse group of customers. Retro diner vibe. Must have read the menu wrong. A side costs extra. Skip. I do think Cassell’s has a better patty melt but I just love the vibes here and the Googie architecture . They close at 3pm. Wished they open late late so I can see the sign lit up with the Edward Hopper Nighthawks feel.
