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!mendocinofarms.com

Twist & Grill
Twist & Grill provides each diner with an unique experience every time you visit; allowing you to have a healthy, flavorful and fun meal created by you for you!
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!!twistandgrill.com

New Moon, with locations in downtown Los Angeles, Montrose, Santa Clarita and San Marino has a following that goes back three generations.

It was the combination of great food, attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere that set the pace for New Moon’s enduring success.
Third generation restauranteur Colin Tom, a Cornell Hotel School graduate, has taken the best of his family’s recipes, brought them up-to-date and expanded the scope of his menu using an excellent blend of seasonal ingredients. Classic Chinese cuisine has been re-imagined with the lightness and freshness that comes from living in California.newmoonrestaurants.com
