The New York Times calls Larchmont’s Kali “California Cuisine Without the Pretension,” in its review of our newest local restaurant at 5722 Melrose Avenue.

“Kevin Meehan and Drew Langley have constructed a world as colorful, complex and wild as the Golden State itself,” writes Leslie Pariseau in her Bites column for the Times.  “Too often, California-style restaurants lean on invocations of Chez Panisse or a pithy mantra. But in a world where avocado toast, kombucha and wheat berries have become overused signifiers, Kali infuses them once more with meaning that skirts preciousness in favor of seriously beautiful food.”

Congrats to Kali! Lucky us Larchmontonians, to live so close!
