Potato Chips, the sandwich shop closed last summer by owner Steve Arroyo, is now reopen on Stanley Ave. According to Daily Candy, Arroyo shuttered the original location of his taco shop, Escuela, for the reopening of Chips, which had itself been closed in 2012 to become Otra Escuela, an expanded sister restaurant to the taqueria. The deli has a sunny new coastal cape look, washed in white slats and bearing art of the Pacific surf and California cliffs. The sandwich menu includes roast beef with aged cheddar, eggplant parms, grinders with roast turkey, and meatball subs on locally baked bread, complimented by the chip selection, which features old school crisps like Utz and Zapp’s.
The news may also bode well for anyone still hoping for some sort of return of Arroyo’s Matadors & Cobras, which shuttered its first and final location in the winter of 2012.
Potato Chips, 308 N. Stanley Ave. Los Angeles; 323-939-8226.
