Welcome to our Restaurant Spotlight series! Each week, we’ll feature just a few of our rockstar restaurant partners in our cities. This week? We’re showing you a sample of what our lucky Los Angeles corporate catering diners look forward to. 

Los Angeles is home to some of the most unique and diverse restaurants in the country – yeah, we said it! You can get everything from Moroccan to Cantonese and Californian to Mexican, there’s something for everyone (so long as you’re willing to drive!).

Chewse is proud to seek out local restaurants in each of our cities, but most of all, Los Angeles. Nearly half of the private workforce in California is employed by small businesses. Los Angeles’ restaurants almost 30,000 restaurants take up a large portion of that! When you eat local, you’re not only supporting that restaurant, you’re supporting the livelihoods of their employees. That’s a cause we can get behind! 

When you eat a meal with Chewse you can be sure that you’re enjoying food from a restaurant born and bred in Los Angeles. We’ve rounded up our picks of these local spots for a full day of eating with your coworkers in LA!

Breakfast

Earthbar Ocean Avenue made wellness cool way before detox tea was a thing. Since 1971, they’ve been serving up juices and tinctures to the masses for complete mind, body, and soul healing. Earthbar Ocean Avenue is one of the only locations to serve up whole foods like healthy toasts and smoothie bowls. Together, we’re bringing you a breakfast to feel great about! 

Our favorite is their build-your-own healthy toast bar featuring hearty grain breads and light spreads like anti-inflammatory turmeric hummus and protein-packed lavender ricotta. Top with creamy avocado or homemade seasonal jam for a breakfast that will have coworkers wondering what your secret is.

Lunch 

When Seoul Sausage won Season 3 of Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race, brothers Ted & Yong Kim knew they created something special. You’ve probably seen them in Eater LA, Buzzfeed, or at the LA Street Food Festival – just to name a few. The duo is re-writing the book on Korean-American Barbeque, and Angelenos can’t get enough.

So we heard the calls and we’re bringing Seoul Sausage to all our Los Angeles corporate catering diners! Their choose-your-own-adventure sausage bowl lets you add your own Seoul ( 😉 ) to your lunch. We can never choose between all of their sausage options (and we’re always tempted by their vegan apple & sage sausage!). But once the hard part is over, we top it off with sweet and savory furikake and spicy kimchi.

Dinner

When pulling a late night at the office, all you really want to eat is warm comfort food that wraps you in a hug. Eastern European fare is the definition of comfort food: braised meats slow-cooked for hours and rich grains like plov, an Uzbek rice dish simmered with herbs and spices. We’ll stop there because we’re already drooling. 

Doma Kitchen is serving up just that with a California twist. Take a brain break with dishes like chicken meatballs simmered in savory tomato sauce and braised buckwheat kasha, hearty grains slow-cooked with caramelized onions. Doma is where the heart is!

Happy Hour 

We all need to celebrate our big and small wins every once in awhile! Whether you’re living it up for your Series C funding or your boss’ retirement, Truxton American Bistro’s will make any occasion extra special. 

Truxton’s marries California ingredients and Southwest-style fare for flavorful sliders, flatbreads, mini grilled cheeses, and classic dips and breads. And no party is complete without dessert! We once had their brownie espresso bars – nothing was the same after that.

Ordering every day or once a week, you’ll never get tired of all these essential eats (and more!) with Chewse’s Los Angeles corporate catering. Craving more? Check out our picks for breakfast catering and healthy bites!
