Mendocino Farms pays tribute to the county in Northern California that is known for its support of the slow food movement and sustainable farming. This area is famous for its unpretentious “down home” love for artisan food and drink. It is our inspiration!
Our approach is a little different than most of the other guys – we like to play with reconstructing the “fine dining” entrees to the sandwich level, and take classic regional sandwiches and give them a modern interpretation.
Mendocino Farms is all about the sandwich. We have great prepared salads, sides and soups all inspired by our local farmers market, but at the end of the day, we want to be your local sandwich shoppe! Sandwich Aficionados fulfill your passions 11am-9pm Monday-Friday | 11am-7pm Saturday & Sundaymendocinofarms.com

Twist & Grill

The concept for Twist & Grill came about when two chefs were hanging out one night trying to figure out how to elevate a common street food around the world! They took the idea of the shawarma or gyro and have mixed it up to make a new TWIST.
The method of Twist & Grill: First, select your foundation: fresh salad, rice or home made flat bread. Next comes the spitz: chicken, turkey, beef, pork, veggie. Finally, dress it up with a variety of sauces, dressings, cheeses, vegetables and much, much more! 11am-9pm Monday-Friday | 11am-7pm Saturday & Sundaytwistandgrill.com

At Torta Company, one thing you can be sure of: We know Mexican cuisine—and we’re not afraid to boast about it. Jimmy Shaw—the man behind Los Angeles’ Lotería Grill—loves L.A. and he loves his native Mexico. He also loves tortas–the Mexican sandwich–and wanted to make great ones to share with everyone. So he teamed up with his brother Andy with a common goal: provide the city with the best tortas ever.
But there is no great torta without great bread, so they sought out the best bread recipe in the world to create the most delicious, authentic telera ever. From there, Jimmy and Andy put together everything they knew would make an amazing torta, carefully arranging different combinations of ingredients and tasting them to make sure every bite was delicious.
The result? Torta Company: where one bite will make you happy for the rest of the day. ¡Buen provecho! 11am-9pm Monday-Friday | 11am-7pm Saturday & Sundaytortacompany.com
