Imagine this scenario: You've just received a call from your best friend from high school, the one who always puts on a beautiful dinner when you visit. She's coming tonight or maybe tomorrow, she's not sure. You have a report to finish for work, a California Mission project to help your fourth-grader with, and you sure would like to go to that Zumba class. But you'd love to treat her to a nice meal at home. What to do?
Enter the Spot. The Spot, recently transplanted from Pasadena to Glendale, is a unique dining establishment. Primarily a catering company, The Spot also sells prepared entrees, sides and desserts to take home and enjoy. If you heat them according to simple instructions and reassemble them artfully, your guests will think you spent the whole afternoon in the kitchen. The Spot also has a dine-in option. The cheery eating area with high tables is a nice place for a casual lunch or dinner. It's on the pricey side, considering you order at the counter, but the meals are satisfying and nutritious.
