First, they legalized medical marijuana.
Next, they legalized recreational marijuana.
And now, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for…
America’s first restaurant to serve cannabis will soon open in Los Angeles.
The Lowell Cafe in West Hollywood will be offering cannabis to consumers as part of their regular non-cannabis infused food menu. The cafe has confirmed that they will become America’s first “full-service restaurant and lounge to offer farm-to-table cannabis and cuisine.” Diners over the age of 21 will be able to enjoy a menu designed to “enhance the cannabis experience.”
Lowell Farms says their cafe was one of eight places granted a cannabis consumption license in West Hollywood, although there were over 300 applicants.
The cafe will offer a “flower menu,” which they say will change daily “based on seasonal harvests available from our network of family farms.” Guests will also be able to purchase prepackaged cannabis-infused products, although current legislation prevents them from offering any infused dishes.
Their website describes the restaurant as “a welcoming space for those who are cannabis connoisseurs and those who are canna-curious and looking to experience cannabis in a welcoming atmosphere. There hasn’t been anything like this in existence for over 100 years, dating back to pre-prohibition era cannabis tea pads. We’re excited to set the standard on what a cannabis cafe is and create this experience for the community.”
Chef Andrea Drummer created the menu, which the cafe calls “the first-of-its-kind.” According to their website, the menu will be “reflective of California flavors with its farm-to-table experience for both cuisine and cannabis.”
Chef Drummer is also “highly regarded for her ability to pair a strain with a dish that compliments its particular flavor profile,” according to press materials released by the Lowell Cafe.
The Lowell Cafe is set to open sometime in September and will start taking reservations two weeks before their opening date.
