Ever since the Belcampo closed down at 1026 Wilshire due to a spot of trouble, I’ve been keeping my eye on the commodious space to see what would move in. The mystery is now over. Signs went up this week announcing a branch of Kalaveras. Kalaveras offers an immersive El Dia de Los Muertos celebratory fast/casual concept with “Latin American culinary classics” and a focus on mixology. They have locations across LA County, with a serious expansion in the works including Long Beach, Silver Lake, Newport Beach, and others.
A “preview” of the upcoming Belcampo Meat Co. Restaurant and Butcher Shop, the Belcampo Farm Kitchen is now open for a trial run Tuesday through Saturday 5pm to 10pm at the corner of Wilshire and 11th in Santa Monica. You can check out a sample of their menu that features meats that are grass-fed, organic, and humanely raised at their farm in Northern California and learn more here.
