Star Provisions Lunch and Desserts



Shrimp Po' Boy.

Last week I finally tried Star Provisions for lunch. I'd been before once to buy some high quality salt and peppercorns and soft serve ice cream with olive oil & sea salt - try it if you haven't - definitely a different yet oddly satisfying taste. This time I opted for the shrimp po' boy (above), which lived up to the hype. I really enjoyed this: soft bread, perfectly fried shrimp, good sauce. I didn't try the chicken sandwich but it looked tasty, with a Green Goddess dressing.

To please my office-mates I returned to work with the below desserts. My favorite of the three is the chocolate peanut butter bar, which is strange because I would have thought I'd favor the blueberry tart. The S'mores bar was interesting, but perhaps a little too much marshmallow - also, I think it loses something when it's not hot - perhaps a brief stint in the microwave would have helped. Star Provisions is a must-try for any foodie - their prepared foods to take home as well as their foccacias and pizzas looked amazing. I need to come back more often!

Amy,

I'm guessing you've been to Alon's. Have you been to Sawicki's? If so, how do these compare to Star Provisions?

I like the sandwiches at SP better than Alon's. I have not yet tried Sawicki's but it's on my radar. I do like Alon's cookies and pastries quite a bit - especially the almond croissant!
