Best Takeout Counter (Gourmet Division) - 2003
Provisions Gourmet Market & Gifts - CLOSED
Provisions is a sprawling, one-stop store for the gourmet: wine, cheese, spirits, prepared foods, cooking utensils and a large inventory of gifts, all under one big roof. But it's their takeout menu that keeps folks coming and going from breakfast till dinner. All breakfast fare is just $4.95 (for omelets, pancakes, burritos, French toast made with challah bread and more). For lunch there's eleven salads and fourteen sandwiches (all on house-made artisan breads) as well as pizzas, gyros, wraps and quesadillas. Dinner is a gourmet's delight: bourbon-glazed salmon, coconut chicken strips, grilled scallops, beef tenderloin and crab cakes, not to mention seasonal fresh seafood items and a plethora of side dishes. Provisions' sister store is the Wine and Cheese Place, so expect the same good wine selection as you search for a bottle to take home with your grilled lamb chops.
