today: California chefs Daniel Patterson and Roy Choi announced plans to collaborate on a new fast food chain, Loco'l
. It will be focused on bringing healthy, high-quality food to underserved areas in the community and its first location will be in the Tenderloin, according to Inside Scoop
The idea is to compete with chains like Burger King and McDonald's, but serving good-tasting, healthy food. So, the menu will have burgers, called smashes, that have things like beef combined with a grain/tofu mixture on whole grain buns developed by Tartine's Chad Robertson. There will also be rice bowls and salads, all priced at $2-$6.
