stirMarketOpening today, Stir Market-a boutique California take on the classic European food hall experience-introduces guests to a contemporary dining and retail concept. Located on Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles, the 4,000-square-foot urban market hall and restaurant offers an abundance of seasonal choices served from multiple food counters-European Rotisserie & Expo Kitchen, Seasonal Market Salad& Sandwiches, a Wine & Snack Bar with Charcuterie and Cheese, Artisan Bakery, and Espresso Bar-where locals and visitors alike can meet, dine, and shop in one dynamic setting. A selection of epicurean takeaway fare and gourmet retail products is also available to cater to the fast-paced lifestyle of Angelenos.

The roots of Stir Market pay homage to the major food hall cities of Europe, including Paris, Milan, Madrid, Berlin, and more (represented by its ultra-modern geometric logo/map). “We’re inspired by iconic culinary/retail destinations such as Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid and Harrods in London where dining and shopping blend effortlessly,” explains Stir Market President and Co-Founder Mimi Mok, a self-professed Francophile who has spent over a decade living in southern France. “These great markets-that offer diverse eating experiences, shopping, and a sense of discovery-are as memorable as any Michelin starred restaurant. That’s was our inspiration for Stir Market, an environment where neighbors can come together for morning coffee, a meal on-the-go, sit-down dinner, and even shop for a gourmand gift.”
