Old World Market
An aroma of sharp cheddar and freshly baked bread. Wood rafters and paneling rise to a slanted ceiling. A Buddha on one wall, and other cultural icons spread around.
We make our way past a salad bar, pastier and fresh-cut meats. $18.99 for veal rib and ground lamb are among the offerings.
Arriving at the cheeses, we sample that sharp cheddar. Next, a few feet away, we try extra virgin olive oil with slices of that freshly baked bread.
