Evoe is the name of Pastaworks on Hawthorne's small "eat in" space and "chef's counter." It draws its name from Virgil's homage/invocation to Bacchus and from founder Peter de Garmo's winemaking experience in the late '60s.

Evoe's menu of salads, charcuterie and small plates showcases the produce, meats, cheeses, groceries and beverages available in the store. There are wines by the glass, beers too, and customers can purchase wines and beers off the store's retail shelves (with a modest corkerage fee).

Customers can access Evoe via the retail space, as well as the street. It's open — first come, first served — Thursday through Sunday noon - 7p, for lunch and snacks.

So come in, grab a stool, and leave the hectic world behind. Eating at Evoe is like a little slice of Europe, where drinking a glass of wine at lunch is de rigeur, and there's no reason to rush.
