Best Takeout Counter (Gourmet)

The Smokehouse Market

If you were to judge restaurants and markets by deliciousness per square foot, the Smokehouse Market would be the runaway victor. This gourmet market is tiny -- if it's even moderately busy, passing a fellow shopper in one of its aisles becomes an intricate dance -- but you can't move an inch without spotting, at a conservative guess, three dozen things you want to eat right this second. The deli turns out top-notch sandwiches featuring the Smokehouse's incredible smoked meats; you can also make a sandwich of your own from the market's barbecue (the pulled pork and beef brisket are especially good). Planning a picnic? The Smokehouse Market offers incredible smoked sausages and a wide selection of gourmet cheeses, plus housemade pasta salads. Need to impress the company you invited for dinner? The market has meats and sides ready for you -- and did we mention that it shares its address with one of the area's top restaurants, Annie Gunn's? Don't worry. We won't give away your secret.
