WHY The neighborhood is grateful for this gourmet market, café, takeout spot and caterer. Call ahead for excellent picnic baskets or party platters.
WHAT It’s not just the neon-red paint that makes this West Pico storefront stand out—the quality of its takeout and café fare has won it the devotion of many locals. You’ll pay more than $10 for a sandwich—slow-roasted grass-fed beef tenderloin on a baguette, for instance, or cilantro tofu with grilled corn relish, avocado and tomato on five-grain bread—but the ingredients are top drawer.
