Breakfast, Sandos, Juice at Downtown's New Local Table

Just yesterday, Local Table quietly opened on Figueroa and 8th in the heart of Downtown's Financial District serving a mix of healthy salads, sandwiches, and composed plates. Taking over the former Colori Kitchen locale, the eatery now has a simple office commissary feel in an expansive space that will cater to the cubicle denizens abounding in the area. A faux Downtown skyline in the back and hanging votives are the main design elements, while straightforward counter service is geared to quick meals.

A look at the menu reveals an emphasis on all-day service, with things like acai bowls, yogurt bowls, omelets, and cold-pressed juices to start the morning. For lunch, there's a tight list of light dishes like crispy chicken rice noodles, turkey apple sandwich, and California black cod served with a warm beet salad. Handsome Coffee helms the espresso, cold brew, and drip coffee service, while teas come from Mariage Freres, a well-know Parisian brand.

In addition to cold-pressed juices like Strawberry Fields (strawberry, apple, lime) and Green Lemonade (kale, watercress, apple, lemon, and turmeric root), a list of smoothies fulfills the desires of the healthy types, including Hydrate (prickly pear, pineapple, papaya) and Pre-Workout Beets (roasted beet, banana, berries, honey, protein powder).

Overall, Local Table is a much needed Swiss Army knife of an eatery that will work great for those living and working in the Financial District.
