LOCALI Announces Additional Los Angeles Expansion Into West Hollywood
t’s hard not to choose healthy nowadays. With so many health-conscious restaurants taking over the food scene, there’s no excuse not to give them a try. The newest addition to the phenomenon is the fourth location of Locali, a rapidly growing LA-based concept with their latest opening taking place in none other than West Hollywood. Locali is known for their notable made-to-order sandwiches, salads, quinoa bowls and other healthy options.
So what makes Locali stand out among the competition? It could easily be their ability to create delicious food that goes practically undetectable as vegan by a carnivore like myself. Their famous vegan Reuben surpassed any expectations I could have possibly had for a plant-based sandwich. The taste was beyond that of any standard version of the sandwich I’ve ever had and had me thinking about it for days after. The sandwich would be unrecognizable as vegan to the average eye, with two slices of rye bread filled with marinated vegan deli slices, vegan cheese, sauerkraut and smothered with homemade vegan Russian dressing — a satisfying combination to say the least.
Another popular favorite is the “Badass Breakfast Sandwich,” a completely vegan take on the classic American breakfast sandwich that succeeds in its attempt. Named one of “LA’s 10 Best New Sandwiches” by Zagat, the sandwich boasts vegan sausage, soy-free cheddar, chipotle sauce and maple syrup, all served on a multigrain English muffin. The flavor combination exceeds its description and is sure to please omnivores and meat-eaters alike.
For those who don’t wish to forgo their love of meat, turkey can be substituted, as well as regular cheese. But before making that switch, I recommend trying the sandwiches in their famous form. Your only regret will be not trying them sooner.
The newest location is in the heart of West Hollywood, located on Santa Monica Boulevard, and will quickly become your favorite place to stop by for a quick meal or snack. Smoothie lovers can also rejoice, with Locali having many options for ways to get your daily greens and fruits.
Locali provides customers with an award-winning deli menu that will have you wondering why you waited so long to try it. While a soft opening has begun, the grand opening of the West Hollywood location will be taking place on Thursday, November 16th at 5 p.m. Be sure to mark your calendars for the event so that you can try the hottest new spot for healthy cuisine.
