The Grubbies is a window on Sacramento Street where you can buy sushi box lunches every day until they close or run out. It’s on the expensive side, but the mini chef’s choice ($15) comes with miso soup, five types of sashimi and salmon roe, a container of sushi rice, some pieces of nori, and a kale salad with citrus dressing. Get your food and find a sunny spot to sit down and eat. This is an especially good place to stop if you’re having a fashion emergency, because your lunch will come wrapped in a colorful scarf. Yep, really.
