This place is almost always a mob scene. Open every day but Thanksgiving and Christmas, EatZi's packs in throngs of professionals on their lunch break and yoga moms on their dinner run. The layout is simple: breads and fresh goods on the right; pre-made gourmet meals in the center; a sandwich station, salad station and hot meal station on the left and a tiny checkout area up front near the bottled drinks. Patrons snake through the circular pattern, stopping here and there to sample, or just to covet.
Spectacular food at above-average prices is a hallmark here. Breads include a loaf with parrano cheese and sun-dried tomatoes baked in. The sandwich station offers an assortment of slices from which to choose, as well as European cheeses and fancy hams. The salad station will throw in unlimited toppings for a set price.
