Today, HuffPo's Lien Ta takes a look at nine places to order soft-shell crab at this summer. Right off the bat, we get introduced to something we've never heard of before: Fundamental L.A., a brand-new gourmet sandwich shop opening this Monday at 11:00 A.M.until 3:00 P.M. for lunch service on Westwood Blvd. a few blocks under Wilshire in the old Danube space. What can you expect, beside something better than Bulgarian food?
Ta passes along word that the still-unnamed chef here has worked previously at Melisse and Charlie Palmer. In addition to the showcased soft-shell crab po' boy, we see future possibilities for a foie gras and peach pizza, perhaps when the restaurant's beer and wine permit gets approved and dinner and late-night service begins. Stay tuned for a menu and in the meantime, track Fundamental LA thorough Twitter and a soon-to-spring website.
