    Winslow's Home
    A gorgeous postmodern general store that one-ups the "locavore" bit; it has its own farm. Winslow's Home sports a kickass kitchen that serves up soups and sandwiches way better than most. The beef brisket sandwich, its meat roasted overnight and piled high between slices of bread and Havarti cheese, has gained a loyal following, and with good reason. Go early in the day or it'll be sold out. Other sandwiches include the chicken-bacon club, a reuben and a gooey grilled cheese. There are soups and quiches du jour, as well as a tempting array of baked goods. A (very limited) dinner menu is offered after 5 p.m., and egg sandwiches are available for breakfast.
    The cafe tucked in the back of the Worldwide International Food Market is tiny and austere, but it’s nevertheless become the culinary go-to for the area’s Arab community. Co-owner Ruqaiah Sumren’s hummus — silken and spiked with just the right amount of garlic and tahini — is perhaps the best in town. Baba ganoush is equally excellent: It’s tart and lemony, with a bitter, fire-roasted undertone that adds depth of flavor. Kalaya, a tapenade of slow-simmered tomatoes and onions, reveals the flavor that can come from just a few simple ingredients. In addition to the à la carte and catering services, the Sumrens run a bakery out of the market. Pita is their bread and butter, but their pastries have quite a following as well. $. Open daily.
