Joan’s on Third – Studio City

The lifestyle of Studio City – especially along Ventura Place (off of Laurel Canyon and Ventura Blvd) reminds me of a condensed version of Melrose Place in the City proper. Alfred Coffee, Blue Bottle (coming soon) and Bluestone Lane are all within walking distance. But, one of my favorite LA dispatches in the SFV is Joan’s on Third.

Delicious pastries and hand crafted sandwiches set against elegant white tile with tasteful black trim. An open marketplace invites you to get your meats, cheeses and other sliced to order items for the disconcerting kitchen.

For my lunch with @murrayburn, I delighted in the Fried Chicken Sandwich (with jalapeño cole slaw, garlic aioli and butter lettuce on rustic roll) with a mixed berry peach pastry as a treat.

You truly get what you pay for – high quality ingredients deliver exceptional taste.
