More Places Like Tender Greens, Mrs. Winston's?

Hi folks, I recently re-located to LA from the Bay Area. I'm seven months pregnant and looking for good, well-sourced food (preferably organic vegetables, grass-fed meats, etc.) to feed me and my baby. I live on the Westside, near Culver City and would like to find more lunch and dinner places that have the same pricing/vibe/food options as places like Tender Greens and Mrs. Winston's. Have I already found the hidden gems of the area, or are there other great places I should hit? Thanks in advance for suggestions...
There's a new place in Beverly Hills opening later this month called Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop that sounds like what you're looking for. It's at 9671 Wilshire Blvd.
The Point has a similar vibe and do-it-yourself salads.
Akasha near Tender Greens is all-natural but more of a full-service restaurant, not a salad place.
I don't think vegan and raw food are that great for pregnant women, but I've heard Leaf Cuisine is good.
I doubt that very many of these places will have grass fed beef though, it's pretty unusual to find in L.A. restaurants.
Also, it's not particularly healthy, but if I were pregnant, I bet I'd be all over Meltdown, and their food is good quality. I did a little further searching for grass fed beef (other than the hot dogs at Let's Be Frank) and could not turn up even one restaurant anywhere in L.A. that had it. Does anyone know of any at all?
