From an email:
“On Monday, January 7th, Espita will launch Espita Lonchería, a casual lunch-counter service from 11am – 2pm Monday – Friday. Guests will be able to enjoy lunch fare, Espita-style with small plates like Guacamole, Escabeche (pickled vegetables), Tacos (Al Pastor, Pescado, Brussels Sprouts, and Chorizo), Avocado Tostada, Endive Salad, and Huarache (wagyu beef crudo), among other savory items and desserts.
Chef Robert Aikens is excited to launch this casual lunch service for neighborhood residents, workers and visitors alike to experience a quick, affordable, but exceptional quality lunch, in an area that lacks lunch options. Guests will order at the bar counter, receive a sugar-skull number, pick an indoor or patio table, and wait for their food to arrive, with prices ranging from $3 – $12.”
