One of the hardest things about moving from New York to Los Angeles for me has been finding purveyors to replace my trusted ones. In NYC I knew the best places to get bread, coffee, fish, pasta, cupcakes, etc.
In Los Angeles everything is Whole Foods, and while Whole Foods might be a great supermarket it doesn’t stand up next to individual purveyors who specialize.
One of my great discoveries so far has been the Santa Monica Seafood Companyhands down the best fish store I’ve ever been to (NYC or LA).
Got some sushi grade tuna yesterday amazing. Just took a picture for you all!
