{oh joy eats lunch with} alex palermo…



Who  Alexander Palermo, food entrepreneur & owner of Cube Cafe and Divine Pasta Company

Where  Los Angeles, California

Time 2 pm

What's a typical lunch for you? Maltagliati with fresh basil pesto, haricot vert, fingerlings, and heirloom tomatoes with grilled colossal shrimp from Divine Pasta corporate offices. My typical lunch varies from day to day, but I always try to incorporate organic vegetables picked from our rooftop garden, and fresh pasta.

What's your dream/ideal lunch? My dream lunch inspired what I cooked today – trofie al pesto and scampi e batti from Ristorante Da u Batti in Portofino.

Dessert with lunch?  Typically no, unless I have a piece of fresh fruit. I do cheat on Mondays, when my pastry chef is working downtown at our test kitchen.

Thanks Alex!
