Reader Annie tells me that Fala Bar has opened inside the Santa Barbara Public Market at 38 West Victoria Street. I confidently broke the story on May 9, 2018 with the title “Fala Bar Coming Somewhere.” When I contacted the eatery at the time, which has a location at 7751 1/2 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, I was told plans were to open last Winter.
Here is a description of Fala Bar found on falabar.com:
“Founded in 2014, Fala Bar takes an innovative approach to healthy cuisine, offering inspired, fine-casual vegan food, made fresh daily from organic or local produce. We infuse each bite with pure, wholesome and sustainable ingredients made with love. By working with ingredients we believe in and vendors we trust, we are able to offer our customers food that is in line with our personal values and nutritional standards. At Fala Bar, we are disrupting the stereotypes associated with vegan food by making plant-based food that both vegans and carnivores enjoy. While we the founders of Fala Bar are not vegan, we believe that everyone can benefit from a diet that includes meat-free meals. Our menu features healthy versions of comfort foods that are satisfying, flavorful and creative. We use no artificial flavors, soy or processed ingredients. Delicious tasting food that’s healthy for you and the environment. It’s pretty simple.”
