I'm sure it's been asked before, but the search function has failed me. I cannot figure out how to force it to search just for "appetizing" without also bringing up "appetizer" which just absolutely kills the signal-to-noise ratio.
I want to give a bagel brunch like I grew up with after an upcoming morning event.
Is there an appetizing store in OC/LA? Besides Barney Greengrass, where the prices are so high that it would be cheaper to have things overnighted from Russ & Daughters?
(For those who don't know what an appetizing store is, it's where you get all the stuff you need for a bagel brunch besides the bagels -- cream cheese, "salads" (egg, tuna, eggplant, etc.), smoked fish, olives, pickled herring, cheese, halvah, glace fruits, caviar, etc.)
I can certainly chase around finding all of these things in different stores -- but if there were an appetizing store I would choose that instead.
If not, it's OK -- but a one-stop shop would be nice.
