Tasty Spanish Sandwiches And Skewers Head To The Original Farmer's Market
Two Mozza alums are opening a new Southern Spanish-inspired take-out window today, featuring delicious sandwiches and coal-fired skewers.
Beginning today for lunch, The Window At Moruno will serve up coal-fired skewers of meat and vegetables that have been marinated in a variety of bold North African-style spices. The lamb, chicken, pork and vegetarian kebab-like skewers are known as 'morunos' in Southern Spain, and feature strong doses of cumin, paprika, turmeric and peppers. The take-out window, located at the Original Farmer's Market by 3rd and Fairfax, will also serve up sandwiches with the grilled ingredients and flavorful fixings like an insanely good horseradish baba ganoush, pepperoncini, red onion and mint. The vegetarian option features grilled halloumi cheese, sweet potato and crimini mushrooms. To round out your lunch order, we definitely recommend ordering the gunpowder fries with curry leaf and chile de arbol or cooling off with the mejadra, which features lentils, basmati rice and yogurt.
The Window At Moruno is first phase of what will eventually open later this year as Moruno, a full restaurant in the space formerly occupied by Short Order. The Farmer's Market location will also eventually include Bar Vermut, a bar that will feature cocktails highlighting Santa Barbara County-produced vermouth, as well as small bites.
The entire concept was devised by David Rosoff and Chris Feldmeier, who worked together for years at the much-loved Osteria Mozza and much-missed Campanile. The two are working with busy restauranteur Bill Chait, who is behind many other L.A. favorites like Republique, Redbird and Bestia. Rosoff and Feldmeier were inspired by the vermouth and morunos that they've encountered will traveling in Spain, and decided to bring the concept to L.A. The baguettes they'll be using even come from a bakery in Navarra, Spain.
The team will eventually open a location at Grand Central Market, known as Bar Moruno, sometime later this year as well.
The Window At Moruno is located at The Original Farmer's Market, 6333 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA. It will be open 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Fridays to Sundays with expanded hours to come.
