This 50-something-year-old fromagerie is the only historic landmark in Beverly Hills we don’t mind visiting over and over again. The shop is filled with crates of wine, imported jams, and wheels of cheese, and you can order from a tight list of seven sandwiches while cheesemongers offer you nibbles of French butter. The ciabatta sandwiches are pricey ($16-$19), but the fillings feel as luxe as everything else in the 90210. Get the lemony La Zucca with fried zucchini and ricotta, or the Dom with jammy sundried tomatoes and aged prosciutto for a smooch of salt. We usually take our goods to the park across the street. This is a fool-proof plan for a day off or treating an out-of-towner to a leisurely afternoon in Beverly Hills with some of the city’s best sandwiches.

La Zucca

The only vegetarian sandwich on the menu also happens to be our favorite. It has all the texture and flavor components of a fantastic sandwich: the fried zucchini is crispy, slatherings of ricotta and pesto keep everything moist, and there’s salt and acid from the lemon-artichoke tapenade. It’s got punch but it’s not heavy in the slightest.

The Dom

Sundried tomatoes have lost their icon status over the past few decades, but The Dom has us reevaluating. These shriveled-up tomatoes are sweet and jammy, and vanishes into burrata when you bite in. The aged prosciutto is extra salty, too, so everything balances out perfectly.

La Macellaia

You’re at a cheese shop but feeling cold cuts, instead? This one’s for you. This is the meatiest sandwich on the menu, but it still doesn’t just taste like salty pork. The finocchiona brings a little a sweet fennel-y thing, the cotto is buttery, and the ventricina adds a spicy kick.
