Time: 1:00 p.m.
Place: The Sycamore Kitchen
Dish: Gazpacho and chicken salad “toast” (and maybe two cookies and some coffee cake scarfed in the car on the way back to the office)
Verdict: This is total California lunching ladies food, and I’m a sucker for it! (Though I did leave a little hungry—hence the pastry-palooza for dessert.)
