Gusto Green (pronounced goo-sto), the “cannabis-curious” eatery from Canadian parent company Gusto 54 (Felix in Venice), is moving forward in DTLA’s Jewelry District.
The City of Los Angeles recently issued the necessary permits to convert retail space on the ground level of the Green St. mixed-use development, at 718 S. Green Street, into Gusto Green.
“Gusto Green will bring an authentic, farmers market-driven culinary experience to Downtown LA’s Jewellery District,” according to the restaurant’s recently-surfaced website.
“This space will feature an open-concept kitchen, wood-fired pizza oven, and large-scale Tuscan grill.”
Set to open to the public in winter 2020, Gusto Green will offer a brunch, lunch, and dinner service featuring an Italian-inspired menu with “an emphasis on flavor, freshness, and plant-powered cuisine.”
The “flagship” restaurant, which anchors Green St., a “hub for entrepreneurs dedicated to advancing the cannabis space,” is one of three elements to the Gusto Green brand, alongside an “experiential retail” component and a “private-infused dining offering.”
“Gusto Green holds the belief that we have yet to fully unlock the power of adaptogens and cannabis, and is committed to supporting projects and research which support advancement in this space,” the website states.
With over five years of research and product development, Gusto Green is proud to work exclusively with partners who are fearlessly rewriting the rules and diving deep to discover how food, whole plant formulas, and the endocannabinoid system can work in harmony to enhance and improve human wellness.”
