Gourmet market chain offers palate-pleasing items for expert chefs and the culinarily challenged. – The Scene
This homegrown gourmet market chain (with locations in Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange counties) built its reputation by offering excellent products, unbeatable service and special extras like wine tastings and cooking classes. Prices are as extravagant as the selection, but when the occasion calls for it, it's worth every penny.
Not only does Bristol Farms carry items alien to most grocery stores (caviar, fine Italian proscuitto), but a wide selection of familiar items. The spacious aisles are generously stocked with extraordinary mustards, chutneys, oils, vinegars, spices, coffees and cheeses. The fresh meat, seafood and produce are impeccable.
mixed quality, consistent expense – Lying somewhere between Ralph's and Whole Foods, Bristol farms is an odd mix of expensive and ordinary groceries. The deli has an excellent selection of prepared foods and meats. Produce is typically supermarket quality, and all manners of alcoholic beverages are well represented. The butcher case has never failed to please, though I always wonder how it can always appear so full. (Am I the only person who ever buys anything?) In general, I still prefer Whole Foods, but this is another excellent fallback choice.
