Artist Eats: Lauren DiCioccio

For this installment of “Artist Eats,” we asked Lauren DiCioccio to share her favorite place to eat. Lauren is an artist based in the Bay Area, who creates installations, objects and paintings that investigate the “tangible beauty of commonplace mass-produced objects.” We are particularly fond of her embroidered newspapers, and are looking forward to her exhibition at Jack Fischer Gallery in S.F. in September.

“OK, it’s hard to pick just one place to eat so I’ve narrowed it down to one choice for each meal. My choices have a few common threads: a bit off the beaten path, great signage, simple food and a lot of character. My favorite breakfast place is the 3-Zero Cafe at the Half Moon Bay Airport off of Hwy 1; they’ve got about three menu-pages of choices for breakfast, fresh-squeezed O.J. and lots of windows looking out on the airport’s runway. For lunch, I’d highly recommend Falafel’s Drive-In in San Jose—the special is a large falafel with a fresh banana milkshake. Enough said. And, wrapping up the day, my dinner pick is Joe’s of Westlake, which is sadly closed at the moment undergoing a change of ownership. But hopefully they won’t change the tuxedoed waiters, the piano bar or the ravioli.”
