Cube Marketplace & Cafe | Hollywood | Cheese Shop, Italian, Sandwiches, Wine Bar | Restaurant
Down the block from Pink's, in the heart of La Brea's notorious meter-violation district, Cube is one of the most idiosyncratic restaurants in L.A., a wine bar welded onto a small pasta factory; an import business that happens to sell prosciutto sandwiches and the occasional plate of chicken, as well as Tasmanian mountain peppercorns. The weekly menus, posted online each Thursday, read like a cross between food porn and haiku. If you'd rather shop than eat, Cube has the highest "you-can-get-that-here?'' factor of any gourmet shop in L.A., with shelf after shelf of products difficult to find outside their area of origin. You can find exquisite Austrian drinking vinegars from Gegenbauer; raw milk cheeses from Switzerland; dried beans from chefs' touchstone Rancho Gordo; fennel pollen both Tuscan and domestic; argan oil; and coffee beans from the revered Pantheon-adjacent coffee bar Sant' Eustachio.
