For one reason or another every time I'm in near The Artisan Cheese Gallery on Ventura, and hungry, I always end up going someplace else. Now I know that I've been eating crap food all this time when I could have been dining on sandwiches of the Gods. Ok, a tad dramatic, but the eats were damn fine. I tried the Duck Confit on Fresh Ciabatta Bread. Before adding the duck, they give the bread a good schmere of fig spread and add a few slices of a slightly pungent cheese called Le Marechal (I had to write it down). They then put the whole deal in a sandwich press. It comes out warm and a bit gooey. Also, all of the sandwiches seem to come with a few chunks of Tony Packo Sweet-Hot Pickles on the side (which they also sell). It was the best non-deli style sandwich I've had in recent memory. Next time, the lamb...
One word of warning. The prices and selection shown on their website are totally wrong. The actual prices are higher, but the selection seems much bigger.
Ps, Yes, I know I spelled Artisan wrong in the headline, but it's Chowhound, so I can't correct titles, only internal text. Which I suppose is for the best. If they let us edit everything in our own posts, we might be able to gain access to NORAD or NASA or maybe the brewing control room at Anheuser-Busch.... wouldn't want that.
