The New Bristol Farms Store Is Delayed by the Coronavirus

••• If you need a treat, which of course you do, consider the BLT at Bossie’s Kitchen. Somehow, they’re still getting excellent tomatoes. Cap it off with a cookie—I just had the delicious brown sugar hazelnut one.

••• Bristol Farms ran an ad in the Montecito Journal—a bold choice, given the paper’s demographics—announcing that the company is now hiring for its supermarket at La Cumbre. (Last we heard, the company was indeed shooting for this spring.) But a rep says the hiring is on hold due to the coronavirus.

••• The Berry Man “is now taking online orders for about 100 of his top items. Customers can have the boxes delivered (with a minimum order) or they can pick up at the warehouse dock with a staff member doing the carryout. A look around the site this morning showed a solid supply of fruits, vegetables, dairy and a selection of desserts.” The minimum order is $75 and, if you choose delivery, there’s a $20 fee. —KEYT

••• More creativity from Bell’s in Los Alamos: the restaurant is selling CSA boxes. “You will receive Finley Farm lettuce and assorted produce, two flatiron steaks (cryovaced), par-roasted Branden’s mushrooms, 1/2 dozen Motley Crew eggs, our house vinaigrette (to dress your salad) and 6 frozen of our Bell’s cookies (3 cultured butter x 3 chocolate). $65.” And then the restaurant posts video of chef Daisy Ryan showing how to prepare a meal with the ingredients. Order here for pickup.

••• From the Rosewood Miramar Beach resort: “Miramar on the Move kicks off [today] to support our community and thank the heroic first responders and frontline essential workers helping us all through this difficult time. The Miramar food truck will offer complimentary coffee and to-go breakfast burritos from Chef Massimo Falsini from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Find us at several locations like local post offices, supermarkets, fire and police departments, pharmacies, and banks to provide fuel for your Friday. Please note that we are taking every precaution to help ensure your health and safety through limited contact by allowing one person to approach the food truck at a time.”
