Food adventures: Weekday specials

I always like trying something new on weekdays - it makes the day less mundane. Especially if it's a Wednesday.

One of the editors this past summer was telling someone about how she loved Los Angeles because you could go somewhere different or nice to eat in another area of town, and it will feel like a mini vacation. Say, lunch at Beverley Hills. And then you see a celebrity.

I never saw a celebrity, or had a mini vacation, but that's because I usually made lunch. But I get it, a little break from the everyday.

So that's what happened last Wednesday. Roomie and I went for a late lunch at Fraiche, a cafe and bakery a couple blocks north from the dorm. It is, in short, super cute.

Anyway we had trouble choosing between the grilled cheese (with apple butter, ham and white cheddar) and a brie sandwich (brie, poached pear, basil, honey mustard). We ended up going with the grilled cheese and a orange curd cupcake, but we'll definitely go back for the brie. And their almond crusted brioche french toast. New favorite lunch/brunch spot?
