LoKal, pronounced [lo-ka’l], debuts in Coconut Grove in mid-December 2011. Stemming from the German word for restaurant and meeting place, LoKal will live up to its definition of being a meeting place but will exceed all of its guests’ expectations by bringing sustainably and locally sourced ingredients paired with an industrial, raw edginess. Particularly suited to the Grove’s personality and bohemian reputation, Grovites will now have a place where they can satiate their comfort food cravings as well as their ideological inclinations.
Using Florida grass-fed beef and Floridian-raised clean proteins for their burgers, sandwiches and salads, LoKal will be purchasing whole sides of beef, and primal cuts of clean proteins and processing them in-house. Hand grinding their meats daily and pressing each and every patty will result in LoKal’s distinctive signature flavor. Whether made of grass-fed beef, free range chicken or local fish, one thing is for sure, LoKal’s entire menu signals an unparalleled approach to quality and integrity.
