Simplethings: A Cuban Sandwich & Cutie Pies
Simplethings' focus is on fresh-made sandwiches and pies: simple things indeed. But the basic offerings belie the fact that the people behind this restaurant and pie shop have been in the business for a long time. Carrie Cusack had been baking savory and sweet pies in Los Angeles prior to this venture, which opened late 2010.
Located in a bustling part of West Third Street, the restaurant also offers soups and salads. If you happen to be a lover of pie, or want a whole ton of it, they do custom orders.
Christine ordered the special of the day, a Cuban sandwich served with pickled vegetables, before digging into two cutie pies—tortoise and blueberry —while sipping on an iced coffee. I really enjoyed learning about her love of food, art and LACMA which I plan to visit again sometime soon.
