By now Los Angeles' fast casual salad scene has become over saturated with brands like Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop, Saladish, Freshii, Greens Up!, Choppe Choppe, Salata, Tender Greens, Urban Fresh, Chop Stop, Simple Fresh, the list goes on and on. And while many cafes also serve other lunch fare, the bespoke salad concept remains central. Which brings us to today's soft launch of Tossed, one Manhattan's original customizable salad bar which opened in 1997 then franchised in 2004 and now has spaces in Florida, Mass, Texas, North Carolina, and Canada.
Tossed is like the godfather of the fast casual salad world and as of March 14, the public debut, LA has its own branch with more LA cafes to come in the future. Tossed serves design-your-own salads, in addition to crepe wraps, panini, sandwiches and soups. Hours of operation run Mon to Fri 8AM to 8PM and Fri/Sat 11AM to 5PM.
