Not all of us want to be susie homemaker every single night. Some of us are tired or working late while others may not even have an oven. Whatever the reason we have mapped out our favorite places to get food to go from based on our criteria of:
– overall satisfaction
Check out these three spots that never fail and always deliver [some even literally] when it comes to a home cooked meal to go.
I am almost tempted to write nothing here just to make a statement – THAT is how much I LOVE Pasta V but for the purpose at hand I will elaborate. With rings of fresh made bread daily, homemade soups daily, and every kind of italian cuisine you can dream of to go Pasta Vera brings take out to a whole new level. For starters, ever eating normal lasagna again after feasting on one of PV’s chicken spinach lasagnas is nearly impossible. They have different versions of lasagna, chicken dishes, salads and dessert glass case that really is not fair for anyone who is attempting a healthy diet. With the utmost of fresh ingredients and a wall of their own entrees, sweets, sauces and more to go Pasta Vera will quickly become any GG’s favorite go-to.
Garelick and Herb is like the little store that you go into for one thing and walk out of with 25 things. Full of an amazingly friendly staff [especially given the time they open which is admirable in itself] G&H brings me happiness daily. An array of coffees and teas, breakfast treats and sandwiches and everything you could ever think of literally for lunch or dinner, you can be on any diet imaginable and still find something at G&H or conversely you could be having the biggest cheat day of your life and find something completely satiating. With a catering business that everyone swoons over G&H is the perfect place to pop into to find the best option for lunch or dinner at home, grab a treat or two and even a card or little present on your way out.
Another great place that offers everything from soups to baked goods and magazines at check out Balducci’s has mastered gourmet for those on the go.
