Mall's burrito cart owner bolts
After less than a year, L's Burrito and Juice Co. owner Lyndon Larson has decided to call it quits June 1. Larson, a New England Culinary Institute grad, operated the popular cart on the Downtown Mall serving up northern New Mexican burritos and tacos. According to his Facebook page, Larson has already boarded a plane for Spain where he’ll cook on a yacht for the summer.
“Charlottesville just isn't my kinda of town,” writes Larson. “Thanks to all the people that made this chapter in my book/life possible. Good luck and do not accept mediocracy.”
In the meantime, if there’s anyone out there who wants to carry on the tradition, the burritoaire’s cart is for sale.
The cart has a 24-inch griddle, two standard steamtables, a giant soda cooler, and "plenty of storage,” writes Larson. It's health code-inspected, and he also has commissary kitchen equipment. $11,500 takes all. "No tire kickers, please.”
