The Flame Broiler to Open Affordable Eatery in Highland Park

by LA1 News Desk

   The Flame Broiler restaurant chain is opening a new franchise location at the corner of North Figueroa and Avenue 57. It is the restaurant's sixth location in the City of Los Angeles. Workers on ladders were installing the signs at noon today. Brand new tables and chairs inside gave the impression that the location would open soon.

   The Flame Broiler chain operates under the slogan of “a healthy choice.” With the recent openings of the pricey Mr. T’s Bowl, coffee shops and haircut locations across the street, some locals see an advantage to franchise eateries. “The community needs restaurants that are affordable," says Mando Medina, a Highland Park anti-gentrification activist. "Twelve-dollar toast with avocado at Birdie Café is just a joke," he adds. "We need eating establishments to be affordable for people on fixed incomes who have been living here for a long time.”
