The Belly Up Sandwich Shop to Open in April


Partners Jon Swire and Adrian Pujol plan to have The Belly Up Sandwich Shop open at 1146 Abbott Kinney by the end of April. Paul Mojica (Taste on Melrose) will be the Chef and General Manager.

As of now the price point is expected to be around 8.95 or less per sandwich, with “locals” pricing / packages. The sandwich shop will also feature one of the first “Coke Freestyle” machines in West LA., dispensing 100+ brands of sodas.
