Off The Menu: Local's Fave 'Locol' On Opening A Bakery In West Oakland
The 'ironically' critically acclaimed fast-casual, Locol, is setting up their newest venture: the Locol Bakery.
Eater had news that the team was taking over the former Tomm's Bar-B-Q & Deli space at 3446 Market Street to offer pizza, pie, and already popular Locol drink items like "green juice" and agua fresca. Of course, if you haven't seen the news behind chefs Daniel Patterson and Roy Choi's East Bay creation, New York Times critic Pete Wells gave a rough review of the existing Oakland Locol location. Which made notable chefs and news outlets in the area question both Local and Pete Wells interaction.
Regardless, Locol's Choi and Patterson appear to have taken the criticism thoughtfully and somewhat in stride. They recently revamped their menu of reasonably-priced cheeseburgers, shakes, "foldies" (which are like quesadillas), and more.
