|Moore's rare roast beef on ciabatta with arugula and house made aoli.|
Little Flower Candy Company owners Christine and Robert Moore have been dreaming a little bigger these days. Inspired by Robert's parents' 1947 San Francisco sandwich spot of the same name, they opened Moore's Delicatessen on October 4th in the civic center of Burbank (across the street from the police headquarters), serving pancake breakfasts in the morning and bacon-wrapped meatloaf during dinner. And in between, of course, there are the sandwiches, piled high, in generous deli-style, with medium-rare roast beef, pastrami, and delectably slippery slow-cooked brisket.
On the exterior, deli fans from Attman's in Baltimore to Langer's here in LA will recognize the deli signage standard cursive above the all-caps, blocky descriptive. Fans of Little Flower, which has its own savory line of gourmet meat and bread combos, will also notice a few happy similarities. The ubiquitous crispy and just-right-sour pickles that come with the sandwiches at Moore's are from East L.A.'s A-1 Eastern Pickle Company. And just like the menu at Little Flower, Moore's has an ample selection of vegetarian options, including tempeh with onion sprouts, a yellow lentil dal, brown rice bowls, and for any cheese head, an open-face toasted brie sandwich covered in garlic mushrooms. Salted caramels are also technically vegetarian and are happily available as more modest, single bites at $0.50 a pop. More »
