Help Bring a Grocery Store to the Historic Core

I get emails now and again asking me to post things here, and often I'm willing to oblige. When today's request had to do with bringing a small grocery store to the Historic Core I had to jump right on it.

John Gabin of Cafe Marley and Stephane Strouk of the group behind Mr. Marcel Gourmet Market are running a survey "regarding an upcoming restaurant/grocery store project" in the Historic Core. It asks you about what sort of features would draw you to a market, and what sort of product you'd be most apt to buy.

I said back in May of 2004 that I didn't care too much about the new Ralphs coming in, since the .85 miles from my apartment to the store would be too far to just stop in and pick up what I needed to make dinner. A market in the Historic Core, though... I'd be all over that.

Click here to take the survey.

The only question in the survey that threw me was one that asked "What is your favorite restaurant in Los Angeles?" What kind of favorite? Favorite as in I eat there often, or favorite as in "if money were no object?"
