Plans to expand beyond Long Beach into the greater Southern California area are in the works. Plancha Latin Kitchen will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“Latin flavors are my favorite to work with,” said Chef Sutton in a statement. “[There are] dozens of combinations, the ability to cater to various dietary restrictions, and endless opportunities to be creative.”
Items on the menu include Ropa Vieja (shredded beef with onions, peppers, tomato, garlic and red wine) and Chipotle Rubbed Cauliflower Steak serve all dietary restrictions while maintaining flavor.
Some items like the Classic Cuban Sandwich will be cooked on the plancha, a metal plate placed over a grill that’s a traditional way of cooking in Spain, often considered the first flattop grill.
“Servers will have devices allowing them to make additions to orders, including beverages like craft beers, a glass of Latin-American wine, housemade sangria, desserts, appetizers and more,” said Healy.
Reclaimed wood, lava stone walls with moss and natural quartz stone use the natural elements from the surrounding environment to create a living space for the customer to eat in.
