Eat Well, Every Day

Housemade Food


We know our customers love to cook—and so do we! We prepare dozens of dishes every day so that you can enjoy real food, made by hand, prepared with wholesome ingredients, even when you don’t make it yourself. We use extra virgin olive oil for virtually all of our cooking because cutting corners isn’t really our thing. And we love olive oil. Our fresh and frozen staples, like rich stock and all butter pie crust, are your kitchen back-up team.

You look hungry, have you eaten?

Fresh Pasta


This is where it all started for us. We began as The Pasta Shop and noodles are our love language. Plus, they are the perfect playground for all of our other favorite things, like olive oil, cheese, sausage and fresh veg. We have reverence for the timeless classics like an eggy Pappardelle but we also love to play with seasonal flavors.

Come and make an on-the-spot, custom pasta order,
like the chef you are.

Groceries & Pantry


Whether you are stocking up on pantry necessities, shopping for a show-stopping feast or stalking an unforgettable host gift, we have you covered. We love being the first store to sell a new local product or the only store to carry an extraordinary import. Every shelf is basically a Staff Favorites round-up of perennial classics and new obsessions.

Bring us your recipe riddles, grocery list queries and fantasy food desires and we will make your kitchen sing.

The Cheese Counter

& Deli Case


Cheese newbies and curd nerds alike feel at home with us. Our legendary cheesemongers and cured meat team travel to farms, caves, kitchens and far-flung markets to find the finest. With one of the largest cut-to-order meat programs in the country and over 200 cheeses, we have the goods. We store, prepare and present every product with deft care so that it arrives in your mouth as the maker intended.

It’s not about the perfect cheese, it is about the perfect cheese for you. Let’s make a love match.

Slow-Roasted Leg of Lamb with Za'atar
Warning: This lemony, herbaceous roasted lamb will elicit a bounty of oohs and ahhs when you bring it to the table. The lamb is first marinated with za'atar, preserved lemons and lots of garlic. Then it's slowly roasted, rested and roasted once more at high heat. The result? A succulent, juicy...

Proud to Partner with

Thoughtful Sourcing

Every product and ingredient is considered based on our priorities: taste (do we want to share this with others, now), ingredients (is it free of unnecessary preservatives, coloring agents or junk?), value (is it priced in line with its quality?), packaging (too much?), provenance (can it be sourced reliably from our neck of the woods?) and seasonality (how can you not celebrate a perfectly ripe Californian tomato?).
All of our protein is antibiotic- and hormone-free. Our chicken is air-chilled, free-range and non-GMO fed. Our pork is non-confined and Duroc breed. We partner with US farms and cooperatives to source our grass-fed and grain-finished beef and lamb. Our shrimp are skim-netted, never dredged and chemical-free. Our salmon is raised in the deep sea lochs and ocean waters off the northwest Scottish coastline and is B.A.P. (Best Aquaculture Practices) certified.


We use extra virgin olive oil for all sautéing, sauces and dressings (except when its flavor is too robust for a certain dish). No fillers or fakes in our flavors, friends.
