Joan McNamara opened Joan’s on Third (12059 Ventura Pl., Studio City, CA) in 1998 and lived her dream of sharing good food, conversation and laughs with the Los Angeles community. Her gourmet marketplace, deli and catering business grew over the years, and now she is opening a second home for Joan’s on Third in August in Studio City.
Joan’s on Third has become a Los Angeles staple with delicious food in a comfortable and stylish setting. With dishes like perfectly cooked omelets to Joan’s Turkey Meatloaf, the crunchy Chinese Chicken Salad, and the Magic Bar, a cross between a brownie and oatmeal cookie, you can’t go wrong.
Ventura Place was the perfect place to expand and continue the neighborhood café feel. Joan’s signature Holstein black and white cows have moved into the 4,000 square-foot space, that use to be a post office. It’s bright and airy with marble counters and large antique community dining tables.
Open Monday–Saturday, 8 am–8 pm and Sunday from 8 am-7 pm.
