Here's what you can expect inside Sack Sandwiches, opening Friday on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. The casual Sunset Strip space comes from the mind of Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio, who is in the middle of reformatting his ink.sack sandwich brand into something new (and expandable).
The fun, vibrant rooms offers seating for 10 or so, wrapping around the open kitchen with a look that feels similar to a casual eat-and-go ramen shop. There are plugs everywhere for charging devices while downing sandwiches, plus some artistic touches like black and white doodles on the wall in the back and a funky yellow wall that runs down one end of the shop; design comes from David Rockwell of Rockwell Group.
Much of the menu remains the same as the ink.sack original, though there are some tweaks and new features, like Straus Creamery milkshakes and Stumptown Nitro cold brew on tap. The full menu is below.
Sack Sandwiches officially opens on Friday, February 26, with lunch through late night hours running 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. most nights. Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, those hours expand to 2 a.m. In the meantime, ink.sack on Melrose will close for a few days, in order to transition over into this new Sack Sandwiches concept and away from the ink.sack of days gone by.
