Valley burger spot Psy Street Kitchen is expanding its footprint, opening up a sister restaurant in Venice later this year. The place will have a different focus than just burgers though, focusing this time on the beloved sloppy joe.

The restaurant is to be called Sloppy, of course, and it could be open as soon as mid-July. That’s according to owners Gal Ben-Goya and Uzi Wizman, the Israeli couple behind the ever-popular PSY in Sherman Oaks. That restaurant keeps entirely kosher and plays to the large Jewish communities of the Valley and beyond, while Sloppy will offer a bit of something for everyone.

Instead of only offering the classic well-spiced ground beef option, Sloppy will focus on stuffed sandwiches of all varieties, built around a semi-hollow bun that keeps things at least a bit more contained. Yes, that means mac and cheese “sloppies” too. As for the compact takeaway space lands along Windward Avenue, right by the pier, and should be up and running in a matter of weeks.
