Ferry Market --more stuff open

Ruth Lafler | Jul 26, 2003 12:08 AM

I went browsing through the Ferry Market today at lunch, much to the distress of my wallet.

Open since last time I was there -- the wine shop with wine bar and Lulu Petite. The wine shop is good sized and although they aren't fully stocked yet, has an interesting selection, including a whole section of half bottles. What I really liked was that the wine bar had "taste" sized pours, many of which are under $2.00. Since I rarely drink even as much as a half a glass of wine, this is just my speed, plus it's a safe amount to have when you're going back to work.

Lulu Petite was doing a landrush business, and the food was so appealing it was easy to see why. They were out of the yummy looking housemade potato chips, so I just bought ... something I can neither spell nor pronounce ... a square of seasoned flatbread with a dollop of what I think was green olive tapenade. Delicious! Definitely the answer to the question "where do you get fancy sandwiches in that area" with offerings like duck rillette.

Then I wandered into Cowgirl Creamery to feed my truffle cheese addiction (having whetted my truffle appetite with a taste of truffle honey at Lulu), and finally next door to Acme for two challah rolls (one poppy seed, one sesame seed) and a "little roll" -- one of the best price/quality ratio of anything I know of at $1.55 for the three. On the other end of the price spectrum I bought a half dozen chocolates at Michael Recchuiti for $6.00. Something for every budget!
