“One of my favorite places to venture out and grab some nourishment during downtime is The Black Cat on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, or Silver Lake to be exact. It’s in the neighborhood of the studio and has a chill tailored atmosphere for lunch or a night out. Los Angeles has a lot of unique pockets and Silver Lake richly nurtures its creative residents. This establishment is located in Sunset Junction across the street from Intelligencia coffee and Café Stella, which are both excellent refueling stops as well.

A “Jar Pie” is exactly what it sounds like. Featuring one serving of pie, plus a spoon, it’s the perfect snack for those cursed with an incurable sweet tooth. This one above is “layered with a short bread crust with Toffee, Candied Pecans, topped with a moist layer of Banana Cake soaked in a light Amaretto Syrup.” Scoop it up.

This flower soup at Box Kite in the East Village looks ridiculous. According to the restaurant’s instagram, it’s “a cocktail of fermented tomato & dashi, burpless cucumber, flowers and beach peas.”

Fat Snacks

Throwing calories to wind, we eat whatever we want and then tell you about it.

Ideal for a late breakfast, the ice cream donut sandwich at Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop is an off-menu item that’s on par with the idea behind this column. The particular variation above features salted caramel banana chip ice cream between a halved chocolate cake donut, but get whatever you want, as your creation is only limited by their stock that day.
