If you’re in LA, have you been to Joan’s on Third? A new pal from the show we’re doing (by the way, come see our show!) works there and has been telling us forever that we needed to try the place out. So we went the other day, and sure enough — it’s my new favorite place. It’s clean and white and beautiful, and stuffed full of delicious things everywhere you turn. And apparently, it’s totally a must-do in LA (we struck up a conversation with the women sitting next to us, who said, “Oh, it’s an institution!” Haha!). That, and it totally feels like Eataly or Dean & Deluca, a couple of my favorite spots in NYC.
We pretty much let our buddy order for us, since he knows the ropes. For me, he recommended the butternut squash soup and grilled cheese — they do a half soup/half sandwich lunch plate if you ask for it! Mr. Lovely got the fried chicken sandwich with a side of brussels sprouts. And there was not one thing that wasn’t delicious. Even while we were walking out, completely full, we kept spying things that we wanted to come back and try.
Long story short, go give it a try! Or if you’ve been there, what’s your fave? I need recommendations for our next trip! xoxo
