So I've been trying to get to one of these for 6 months. Always closed before I can get there, but today I had an opening in my lunch schedule and picked Kristin up from work and we hit the Century City Location in the AIG building. AMAZING.

Ok, there is N O T H I N G in LA that even comes close to Mrs Winston. Its not really a grocery store unless you need chips and soda, but its a huge sandwich and salad bar with OOOOOODDDDDDLLLLLLEEEESSS of vegan (clearly marked) goodness. Kristin and I were so overwhelmed by the choices! There are like 6 vegan breads to build your sandwich from! A half dozen vegan tofu salads, a few vegan pasta salads, and of coarse a rock'n salad selection. Its just a huge kick butt salad bar that's called a grocery store. You pay by weight. Next to the Starbuck in Century city there is a nice outdoor area to enjoy your fixings.

Hands down you are NOT cool unless you've been to one of these. I regret most of my lunches for the past 6 months.

Way to go Mrs Winston!

New Vegan Sandwich Baguettes! As if Mrs. Winston's couldn't get any better!

Oh what wonders you can make with a nearly unlimited sandwich and salad bar! Vegan Smoked Turkey, etc!

Don't forget the Century City location! You can park for free at the mall and walk through the AIG building and have your lunch at a nice area outside the starbucks

***FYI I'm PiSSEd at them for feeding me TOXIC cucumbers!! Not only did I spend $12 for my dinner but I couldn't eat it because the cucumbers I added where coated with some nasty toxic crap...maybe they just went bad but something was f-up!! I want my money back :evil:

I think the real question you have to ask yourself is why your salad weighed $12 and mine was $6... my guess is some glass cleaner sprayed off on the cucumbers. Lets hope they used non toxic cleaner, we can check next time and try to get there before they wipe the glass down. I updated their new Ocean Park Address
