Locali “Healthy Convenience” Opens in West Hollywood

Locali has now opened its West Hollywood location. Their focus is healthy convenience, and offering delicious choices for vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. The Grand Opening is on Nov. 16th and the first 100 people receive a swag bag and a free meal (Soft opening is October 23rd).

I popped in to try a sampling of items at Locali. Everything was delicious, healthy and many items organic. Their extensive menu cleverly denotes what is vegan, gluten-free, has animal protein or contains dairy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. What a great place!

Our goal is to change the way people think about healthy eating,” said co-founder Melissa Rosen. “We’ve been really successful because of our passion to serve customers amazing food that also helps them live better lives by choosing healthier options that are planet-friendly, without having to sacrifice flavor.  We’re excited to take this mission and unique food service model to consumers in West Hollywood.

Vegan items include:
The all-vegan Badass Breakfast Sandwich is a knockout with vegan sausage, soy-.free cheddar, chipotle sauce, and maple syrup on a sprouted, multigrain English muffin, which was named one of “LA’s 10 Best New Sandwiches” by Zagat. Delicious.

The “Vegan Brekkie Burrito,” voted by CBS as one of “The Best Breakfast Burritos in Los Angeles

Variations on the trending avocado toast, such as the “Briz” (house-made brazilian nut cheese spread, tomato, arugula and balsamic dressing on sourdough)

The top-selling “Reuben” (marinated vegan deli slices, swiss or vegan cheese, sauerkraut and smothered with homemade vegan russian dressing on rye.

Meatier options such as their “Wayward Pilgrim” (turkey, swiss, crushed walnuts, spinach, red onion, raspberry jam, dijon mustard on six-grain bread).

The Georgia Blonde is turkey, swiss, red cabbage slaw, vegan russian dressing, vegan creamy dill dressing & Stone ground mustard on sourdough…. Delicious.

The Silverfin is made of Locali-made wild caught dolphin-safe tuna salad, monterey jack cheese, driller of balsamic vinaigrette, cheddar and tomato on marble rye… Sooooo good. Everything was great.

A variety of chia bowls, probiotic smoothies, hearty quinoa bowls, organic produce salads round out their menu, plus a selection of fair-trade coffee and herbal teas.
