The word Recess brings back memories of freedom and play. Chef Sevan Azarian, private chef to the stars, late of Fury Rok & Rol Sushi Lounge, had exactly that vibe in mind when he opened up this little coffee house/cafe/charcuterie in Glendale last weekend. The atmosphere is relaxed and easy and the menu is dotted with playful touches - plus there are giant cookies!

But remember how at recess you always had to run real fast right when the bell rang or all of the swings would be taken? Recess is a little bit like that too, Their sudden popularity has been causing them to run out of sandwich fixings as early as 3pm some days. The "Pig Headed" sandwich looks so tempting, "Imported Italian Prosciutto, Fresh Mozzarella, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar" served panini-style on ciabatta or a French baguette. But if you want to try this sandwich marvel, you better get to Recess early because by lunchtime they are all gone. Hopefully, as they find their sea legs the Pig Headed sandwiches will be plentiful.
