Long time lurker, first time poster. I live in OC and don't get to LA as often as I'd like. My friend just opened a tre cool antiques boutique on Fairfax across from the Farmers Market so I had a chance to visit this institution. I hadn't been in 10 years...WOW what a change! I was impressed and overwhelemed a bit.
Any recommendations for lunch/dinner with a 6 year old in tow? I'll be visiting my friend's shop a lot during the next few months so will likely be eating at the Grove and Markets as it's convenient.
Lastly, I'd like to take a basket of food goodies to my friend at the boutique, is that Marcellis (??) French market worthwhile in terms of quality and freshness? Thanks all.
