Zagat –

In Eagle Rock, Leah Park Fierro opened her new shop, Milkfarm, last month. The formerCheese Store of Silver Lake cheesemonger celebrates artisan cheeses, meats and other food products – especially those made in LA. In fact, there are regular “meet the maker” tasting events in the shop with companies like Z Confections caramel corn and Savour This Sauce. While the cheese selection changes regularly, you’ll find familiar hunks and wheels from producers like Humboldt Fog, Point Reyes and Cowgirl Creamery, as well as special appearances from Italy’s Toma Della Rocca among others. And, yes, it’s great to stop in for cheese and all of the extras that make it so delicious, but definitely pop by for lunch: a roster of sandwiches includes things like Applewood smoked bacon with chipotle cheddar, shaved red onion, kale slaw and Dijon on Bread Lounge ciabatta; Iberico salchichon with majorero, chive onion compound butter on ficelle; and pate de campagne with black truffle Dijon, onion and kale slaw. Lunch is available from 11 AM-3 PM, but the shop opens daily at 11 AM and closes at 7 PM (5 PM on Sundays). 2106 W. Colorado Blvd.; 323-892-1068
