And now for something completely different…for Mill Valley.
On Friday, Sept. 23, the former Starbucks space in the Alto Plaza shopping center near the post office is turning into the latest location for Local Kitchens, a digital-centric micro food hall founded by former DoorDash employees and featuring seven popular food truck and brick-and-mortar brands, all under one roof. The Mill Valley space is set to debut with authentic Israeli food from Oren’s Hummus, patty melts from American classic The Melt, Sushirrito, hot fried chicken from Proposition Chicken, The Plant, Wise Sons and pizza from Fiorella.
Local Kitchens will operate daily from 11am-midnight in Mill Valley, which is the company’s seventh Bay Area location, with Cupertino, Mountain View, Lafayette, Palo Alto, Los Gatos and Campbell coming before it.The firm has plenty of additional expansion on the way.
Place orders at localkitchens.com, in the mobile app or at one of the three kiosks at the restaurant at 741 East Blithedale Ave. that’s open daily from 11am-midnight.
The Local Kitchens’ model is a micro version of popular Bay Area food halls like Oxbow Public Market in Napa and the Ferry Building Marketplace in San Francisco. The takeout-focused space will have just a few tables inside and two outside.
“Since launching in 2020, we have seen an overwhelming positive response from our guests and their communities, and we are thrilled to continue expanding Local Kitchens throughout the Bay Area,” said CEO Jon Goldsmith, who founded of Local Kitchens with COO Andrew Munday and CTO Jordan Bramble, who were early employees of DoorDash. “Mill Valley is a very lively and eclectic town, surrounded in the greater Bay Area by an array of acclaimed restaurants. We’re honored and excited to bring these beloved brands closer to people’s homes and believe Local Kitchens will be a welcome addition to Mill Valley. We can’t wait to celebrate our opening on September 23rd with the community!”
