Totally Your Bag

The Return of the Sack Lunch

Ah, second grade: corporate takeovers in the cafeteria, discreet playground dates and Wood Oven-Roasted Pork Cheek Sandwiches in your sack lunch. Okay, maybe not. But now, many of your favorite daytimes stops are making it possible with impressive new takes on the classic bagged lunch. Just like mom never used to make.

Stocking Up on Ammo

For $14, Ammo's new Brown Bag Lunch includes choice of salad or sandwich (maybe a Roasted Jidori Chicken With Olive Tapenade), iced tea or soda, and a cookie. Call them up and they'll bring it to you curbside.

Ammo, 1155 N. Highland Ave, Hollywood, 323-871-2666

Post-Meatball Party

Post-Meatball Party

If you're still hungover from that wild meatball-sub blowout and just need something grab-and-go, come on back to the deli at Little Dom's for a bag. For $12, you can fill it with a sandwich (Wood Oven-Roasted Pork Cheek, perhaps), side (Salami, Provolone and Olives) and Zapp's chips.

Staying Locali

Staying Locali

And over at the earth-minded convenience store of the future , $10.95 will get you a bag with one of Locali's world-saving sandwiches—maybe the Rosso Bianco, with vegan pepperoni on locally made artisan pizza bread—and a side like Teriyaki Tofu or Southwestern Quinoa.

Locali, 5825 Franklin Ave, Franklin Village, 323-466-1360

Sunset-Gower Power

Sunset-Gower Power

Before you head back to the studio lot, the owner of the Bowery and Delancey has a famed brisket sandwich for you at his latest joint, Tamarind Ave Deli. Fill out the white bag with chips and a thirst-quenching Sioux City Sarsaparilla, but make sure to finish the chips before cameras start rolling again.
