Ozzy's was bought by the guy who formerly owned Mahalo's over on Rte 1. Many of the sandwiches on the menu are the same, although there are a few changes. Last time I was there, tasted just as good.I also noted the sign at the golf club, although I did not seriously consider it... I'm not a golfer and something about the look of the place doesn't really inspire confidence in me for a great meal.
I was wondering why the catering outpost of Mahalo's was for rent . . . I'll have to stop into Mizuna - everytime I stopped by Ozzy's I just got really really mad because it was not at all a farmer's market. And I went to the golf club. Yeah, no reason to go back. I went for breakfast on a Sunday, very empty, very cheap. But very ho hum.
Oh yes, I never considered Ozzy's anything but a sandwich shop and a place to get fancy striped ravioli.
Ozzy's had absolutely no interest in supporting local agriculture in any way shape or form.I was told on numerous occasions that local produce was too expensive and that California eggplant was where its at.Farmers' Market my ass!-the mad farmer
word Mad Farmer - hey, I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but did you see that this week's Wire cover article is about local agriculture? Written by Paula Sullivan, who did the series last summer about the farmer's market.
I ordered food from Mizuna last Dec. and it was a big success. Certain things I'm crazy about - the cold pasta salad with peas (and sooo good heated up too) and the spring roll and small vegetable dumplings are wonderful. I continue to go there for really fresh salads (though sadly not organic - where the HECK can I get an organic salad to go?) and very good sandwiches (tuna salad is a little dense but good - order veggies on it) Also great take home entrees. I just have to remember that it's there. Anyone have a copy of the WIRE article on organic farming mentioned earlier?
its more on local agriculture - but the whole article was not as specific as I'd like - here it is anyway: http://www.wirenh.com/Features/Cover_Stories/big_dreams_for_small_farms_200603151161.html
you can get ORGANIC fresh salad to go at the blue moon market in exeter, a great health food store and cafe-check it out! The salad bar is great with a wide spread of greens, veggies, flax seed, nuts, tofu etc!
