A new spot for sandwiches and salads is headed to downtown Tampa, and it's from the  some of the most celebrated restauranteurs in the Bay area.

Sparkman Wharf's newest shipping container restaurant Lunch Lady opens at the end of this month, offering "creative alternatives to the boring ham and turkey sandwiches."

Future customers can expect pressed sandwiches (on locally-sourced bread) alongside salads, juices, teas and more when Lunch Lady celebrates its grand opening in a few weeks.
A press release says Lunch Lady's prices will range from $8-$14,  and offer both vegan and vegetarian options as well.

Chef Ferrell Alvarez of Proper House Group posted on his Instagram that his new fast casual spot is currently hiring for team members, as interested folks should email [email protected] for more information.

The new fast casual restaurant's logo was created by Tampa-based design studio
Pep Rally Inc. and depicts a cartoon sandwich dressed up as a typical lunch lady with a ladle and hairnet—although Alvarez says not to be fooled by its silly name.

"The menu at Lunch Lady translates well to any time of day and will offer delicious food with the same love and uniqueness that you can find at all of our concepts,” Alvarez explains in a press release.
Proper House Group is comprised of Chef Alvarez, restaurateur Ty Rodriguez and Newgentek entrepreneur Chon Nguyen, as the trio is gearing up for the grand opening of their 6th concept in Tampa Bay. Lunch Lady follows PHG's Michelin Bib Gourmand recipient Rooster & The Till,  Nebraska Mini Mart, Sparkman Wharf's Dang Dude and Gallito Taqueria and  upcoming Italian restaurant Ash—slated to debut at Water Street Tampa sometime next year.
