Everybody I’ve met who works in Beverly Hills has pretty much told me the same thing… it is a wasteland of overpriced power lunches. You want cheap, interesting food- you’re going to have to go out of your way. Cheap and decent ethnic food?! Good luck. But I haven’t given up just yet, and when Los Angeles Magazine put Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop on their list of the best sandwiches in L.A. I couldn’t help but get a little bit excited.
See, I like sandwiches. But not just any sandwich. “The best” roast beef sandwich doesn’t nothing for me. Dip that same sandwich in gravy, or cover it in horseradish and then we’re talking. “The best” turkey sandwich? Snore. Top that turkey with stuffing and cranberry sauce, and serve it in a month other than November… now we’re getting somewhere. Oh, and cole slaw and russian dressing automatically makes any sandwich better. Which brings us to Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop (on Wilshire). They’ve got both.
