tren·cher noun \ˈtren-chər\ (from Old French tranchier; “to cut”) is a type of tableware, commonly used in medieval cuisine. During the Middle Ages, thick slabs of stale bread, called “trenchers” were used as plates. After a meal, the food-soaked trencher was often fed to dogs at the tables of the wealthy or to beggars, and eaten by diners in more modest circumstances. Trenchers were the precursors of open-face sandwiches.

Trencher, in Echo Park, is sandwiched between the lake of the same name and Dodger Stadium.

We’re an American, casual-style sandwich spot, with focus on experimental approaches to traditional staples.

We exemplify hard work, long nights, fun, pitfalls, and lots of food tasting. It’s the thrill of the process.



We have lots of retail goodies for sale at the shop! Pick up a Trencher gift card, leather goods, our favorite incense, hot sauce, Field Notes and more! We also have new shirts and sweatshirts.
