••• The Rosewood Miramar Beach resort’s food truck is back in action near the beach bar, serving food and drinks to enjoy on the beach. Unsurprisingly, prices are higher than at your average food truck. Caruso’s, meanwhile, has morphed into “Osteria Caruso’s, a to-go, simple and sophisticated menu featuring fresh, local ingredients from neighboring farmers and ranchers. [Menu here and here.] Orders can be placed in advance by dialing 805-881-2424 from 9 a.m. to 7:45 p.m. to be ready for pick-up from the Miramar Food Truck from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. daily.” More high-end takeout can be found at the San Ysidro Ranch’s Stonehouse.
••• Revolver now offers delivery, but with a four-pie minimum and only to the Westside and Mesa.
••• Sama Sama Kitchen has “started a little mini mart of Asian pantry items, wines, beers & cocktails.” Hopefully its addictive sambal tomat is among the items.
••• Breakfast barbecue? Why not? Nick Priedite will be at Bell’s in Los Alamos on Saturday, serving tortillas, escabeche, brisket, pork ribs, sausage, slaw, and beans starting at 9 a.m. It sells out fast.
