Despite having a name that sounds like a mommy blogger pop-up store, Haute Mess is actually a European-style marketplace, complete with pastries, a coffee bar, and a grocery selling everything from Italian wine to pasta. But perhaps the most surprising element of this Beverly Blvd. spot are the sandwiches - they’re good. Our favorite right now is the Cosmopolitan è Rosati (prosciutto, burrata, and pesto), but each one comes on crunchy, house-made sourdough that makes for an ideal lunchtime sandwich situation. If you’re around The Grove and are short on time, keep Haute Mess in your back pocket.
