Four-year-old Silver Lake vegan restaurant By Chloe is set for some major expansion, more than doubling its footprint across greater Los Angeles with two new prominent locations. One will become the company’s new citywide flagship, located in West Hollywood, turning out plant-based burgers, fries, salads, and more.
By Chloe first came to Los Angeles as part of the new (at the time) Whole Foods 365 grocery store development in Silver Lake. Despite the connection, the small fast casual space always maintained its own entrance separate from the store, and eventually became a destination for Silver Lake, Echo Park and Eastside vegans familiar with the brand from its buzzy New York City locations.
The company doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon, despite parting ways with celebrity namesake founder Chloe Coscarelli back in 2017. Now come the two new LA outlets, starting with the flagship at 8550 Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. This more expansive outlet will offer a patio and more seating overall, and is located in a just-finished mixed-use property in the heart of Boystown, almost next door to LA’s first Shake Shack. The second, smaller location will open this summer at the dining terrace level of the Westfield Century City.
The expansion of By Chloe is well-timed for Los Angeles, thanks to a jump in the number of vegan offerings across the city mixed with the rise of plant-based meat alternatives going mainstream at fast food chains nationwide. Valley vegan star Krimsey’s is set to take a storefront right around the bend from the original By Chloe, and South LA is experiencing a boom of vegan restaurants all its own. Expect both new By Chloe locations to open this summer.
