On one of my latest trips to LA, my brother and sister took Dennis and I to Larchmont Village Wine, Spirits and Cheese. Although it doesn’t sound like it, this local store makes sandwiches.
The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version:
Great sandwiches, quick service.
Mon – Sat 10 am – 7 pm
Serve sandwiches from 11 am – 5 pm (or until bread runs out)
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:
This small, narrow shop is packed with wines and at the back they boast a selection of deli meats and cheeses (this is where they make the sandwiches). Four women take orders behind the counter, quickly and efficiently. Once you order, walk back to the front and pay at the register.
What we ate:
- Soppressata Salami ($7.50)
- Italian Prosciutto ($9)
Both sandwiches were delicious, I liked the salami sandwich better because the prosciutto and mozzarella didn’t pack as much flavor. You must add the sundried tomato spread to any sandwich, it’s delicious! If there was something I had to critique it would be that while it is very well served, the bread to filling ratio was a bit off. I loved the bread, it’s fluffy and crispy without being chewy or hard, but it ends up being just a little thick for what’s inside. I felt that the price was very reasonable for the amount that you get. The sandwiches are thin, but long making them very filling.
If you are in the area. I would definitely recommend it. It’s great for lunch or on the weekend when you’re headed to a clippers game, as we were.
