Impasta, a low-carb, gluten-free diet restaurant, later this year will open a Beverly Hills storefront. Owner Harrison Litvack has secured a five-year lease for a 1,735-square-foot space, at 459 N. Roxbury Drive, formerly home to Roxbury Cafe. The exact opening timeline is unclear and Litvack would not respond to a request for comment by What Now Los Angeles.
With the slogan “crave pasta, not carbs,” the menu offers a range of vegetable-focused bases like spaghetti squash, hearts of palm, zucchini noodles, cauliflower gnocchi, and shirataki noodles. Sauces include impossible bolognese, puttanesca, and pesto with ricotta. There are also healthy pizza options with cauliflower crusts. Vegan cheese is also available for an added charge.
“At Impasta, we believe you shouldn’t sacrifice your favorite pasta dishes to eat healthily,” the company states on its website as part of its mission. “Now, you don’t have to. We set out to find a way for you to eat the pasta you love, without the carbs and gluten you don’t. Eliminating your favorite meals for a healthier diet and lifestyle aren’t mutually exclusive, here’s proof.”
Impasta currently has a location in the Larchmont neighborhood, at 615 N. Western Avenue, operating as part of the 615 Food Court ghost kitchens. At that location, food can older be ordered through delivery apps like Postmates, Uber Eats, Grubhub, and Caviar.
