Lunch Club LA has been all over Los Angeles. We’ve gone to Sherman Oaks, Santa Monica, Westwood - even Silverlake! - but it was about time to head to DTLA, Downtown Los Angeles. We decided upon Bäco Mercat for this week’s lunchtime adventure by recommendation of our CMO, Austin LaRoche. Recognized in magazines like GQ, bon appetit, and Food & Wine, Bäco Mercat was well worth the trip!
Bäco Mercat is known for their signature flatbread sandwich called the "baco," which is a thick pita-type bread, a play on the Spanish type of pizza called, "coca." Most of the table ordered the baco sandwiches and the rest decided on pizza. The baco soaked up the juices from the meats and sauces so not a drop of delicious flavor went to waste.
We also made some new friends today at Lunch Club LA. Our new buddy Pankaj introduced the table to the fascinating world of intellectual property law and trademark law, while our friends from Hoopla Promo, Brian and Chris, gave us a rundown on the new promotional items on trend this summer. Our pals Shehan and Gary from the world of Finance both enjoyed their first trip to Lunch Club, and our IT expert Aramis came to his second outing with us.
While we’ve had some great lunch clubs recently, our visit to Bäco Mercat really shined strong. The staff was very accommodating to our large group and made sure we were well taken care of.
