In the face of extreme competition from Whole Foods (which is now sitting right across the street), Larry's has exceeded my expectations admirably. First of all, they now have the most amazing free samples. The other day, they were serving me flank steak, apple juice, and garlic bread as though the store were some kind of crazy bar mitzvah. Second of all, they have the most amazing salad bar ever and a pleasant sitting area in which to enjoy it. Most of all, Larry's, unlike its outrageously expensive counterpart, still has reasonable parking. Have a little extra to spare on groceries? Spend it on Larry's.
