|Mendo at Fairfax and Third|
The menu is also the same: artisanal sandwiches, farm-sourced ingredients, fresh salads, unique sodas and more. A few new sandwiches include turkey confit with yellow Rooster Sauce and sesame-ginger papaya slaw on a Dolce Forno scallion roll; mac and cheese (yes, a sandwich) with bacon marmalade, toasted kale and smoked gouda on grilled rustic white bread; and braised lamb shoulder with mint pesto. There will be a few pre-opening parties this weekend, but the Figat7th location officially debuts on Tuesday, April 2. On Saturday, April 6, there's a family day party - kids eat free with the purchase of a sandwich or salad.
Next up: Mendo opens in Sherman Oaks tentatively by late summer, with locations slated for Pasadena and Orange County as well.
