If you live in Southern California, go. Go on a Saturday when it's busy. 15 people deep at the deli counter doesn't matter because the samples keep coming.
  1. Sandwich
    0b91b709 0cfe 4330 8e5d 4eead036d020
    This is what I came for. Pre-made. $5. Delicious.
  2. Pizza dough
    D4ae633f a294 4752 9e47 15a78028517f
    Oh, and this. Once a month they email a coupon for three pounds of free fresh pizza dough.
  3. Meat 1
    0a44c14c 736b 44a0 a87f 7bfa882e49ca
    Decided I'd bring a charcuterie plate to dinner for my friend Chris' birthday tonight. This is Bon gusto salami, a house special.

    These too.
  9. Gnocchi
    81b25e56 dfe2 481f a9dc 16705bef01db
    To eat in the night of the 29th. It's a tradition I leaned about when I lived in Buenos Aires that I'm excited to start adopting.
  10. Coffee
    940f511e 80d4 4169 a526 b3f51b426e12
