Desmond's on Grand--GREAT New place at Mercado Paloma

Secret Asian Man | Aug 17, 200503:07 PM


Yesterday, I discovered an excellent new vendor at the Mercado Paloma on Grand Avenue across from USC. (Also home to the excellent Chichen Itza)

Desmonds on Grand serves Italian dishes, pizza, panini, pasta and salads. My friend and I had the meatball panini and Greek Salad. Other menu items were tantalizing too. The salad was beautiful, flavorful and plentiful and the meatballs were great. The quality of ingredients seems high.

They're still a little shaky operationally (just having opened last week) but the food is great and prices are reasonable (around $7 each for sandwiches and salads). The printed menu on the wall has too-small a typeface, but I'm told that's going to change.

Check it out for yourself.
