Plano Has a Tiny, New 'Farm-to-Fork' Food Hall With Coffee, Korean Food and Tacos

In mid-January, Plano got four new food offerings in one with the opening of LC Kitchen, a "food hall-style restaurant" located at Legacy Central, a new "technology-focused, mixed-use campus," according to a press release.

The sleek, contemporary new space is home to four food stands, according to LC Kitchen's Facebook page: Homestead, "featuring garden fresh salads, savory soups and artisan sandwiches," Tacos Por Favor, a "festive taqueria with bold flavors and snappy salsas," Rhino Grill, "celebrating grass-fed burgers, free-range chicken, roasted vegetables and chef-inspired daily specials," and Joeun, a "modern take on authentic Korean cuisine serving banchan, fried chicken and traditional noodle and rice dishes."

The 7,500-square foot space seats 312 and is completely cashless; diners order from kiosks.

The executive chef of the food hall is Vijay Sadhu, formerly of W Hotel. The restaurant is owned, interestingly enough, by Bon Appetit Management, a food service company that largely works with schools, colleges and museums. The company's marketing materials say it's focused on "locally sourced, humanely raised food" and "food service for a sustainable future." LC Kitchen serves "wild-caught salmon and other sustainable seafood, Certified Humane ground beef, meat raised without antibiotics, and plenty of vegetarian and vegan options; other special dietary needs are cheerfully accommodated," according to a press release. "Everything is made in house from scratch."

Bon Appetit says they try to purchase ingredients from "small, owner-operated farms and ranches within a 150-mile radius" of the cafeterias they're contracted to run. According to their website, Bon Appetit buys goods locally from Empire Baking Company, Dallas Mozzarella Co. and farms like Larken Farms in Waxahachie.

LC Kitchen is open for breakfast from 7:30-10 a.m., but the coffee bar is open 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Lunch runs 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and the food hall doesn't offer dinner hours.
