What the Food Critics are Saying

“Fancy vegan is here.” – LA Times

“The premier upscale vegan restaurant in LA” – Where Magazine

“There’s plenty to praise about the food. Filled with almond cheese, the tortelloni sit atop a parsley and frisée salad, as exquisitely folded as a perfumed billet-doux. The finely chopped hearts of palm that provide the meat of the “crab” cakes wield a bona fide hint of Old Bay seasoning, while the pan-seared exterior falls apart at the touch of a tine.” – LA Magazine

“There are dishes that showcase a huge amount of whimsy and creativity, such as ‘artichoke oysters,’ which are oyster mushrooms fried up and presented on artichoke leaves, topped with caviar made from kelp. The presentation is fun, and the seaweed component brings a whisper of the ocean to the dish. But mainly it's just an incredibly satisfying, savory bite of food.” – LA Weekly

Ambience

Designed by Studio Collective, the visually stunning space exudes both understated luxury and the warmth of a neighborhood gathering place (and celebrities, vegans and non-vegans gather there in droves). Hand-crafted chandeliers and wooden beams frame a central dining room filled with tufted red banquettes, white tablecloths and a stylish 11-seat bar. There’s also a wine room and artisanal cheese shop.
