Your favorite restaurants for healthy food

Any type of restaurant is OK so long it is notably committed to healthy food. For example: Real Food Daily and Urth Caffe.

Urth Caffe
267 S Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90212

Real Food Daily
414 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90048

      Yeah, a colleague brought a bunch of Veggie Grill samples into our office. The "chickin'" sandwich was surprisingly good.

        Anything you would recommend there? I noticed one pop up recently in Torrance.

      2. A Votre Sante, Sauce on Hampton, Hugo's, M Cafe de Chaya and Mrs. Winston's are some of my favorites.

          just to update your post:
          the culver city location of M Cafe de Chaya has been replaced by a new Native Foods restaurant.

        2. I like the Good Stuff in Redondo, Malibu Fish Grill (off of PCH in Redondo Beach) and California Fish Grill (next to Veggie Grill). Basically, it's not all healthy (i.e. they have fries) but you can get a piece of fish, simply grilled with some rice.

            Though I haven't been in years, and they maybe closed, for all I know, but Lavish Wraps in Pasadena. Always stopped by for a wrap, after a hike in Pasadena. I loved their hummus.

          2. +1 on all of mollyomormomon's recs.

            some others to consider:
            The Firehouse
            Figtree's Cafe
            Coral Tree Cafe
            Interim Cafe
            The Spot

            Figtree's Cafe
            429 Ocean Front Walk, Venice, CA 90291

            Coral Tree Cafe
            11645 San Vicente Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90049

              love the spot.
              imho they are much stronger in their mexican inspired entrees than they are in their asian-inspired entrees.
              i recommend the Super Burrito. ask for sides of both their red salsa and their green salsa to accompany it.

              1. re: westsidegal

                i don't eat there anymore because practically everything has either soy or wheat (or both!) in it, but i used to love the place.

            2. lots of solid recs already, so i'll just add a few...

              Eat Well on Santa Monica in WeHo
              Greenleaf Chop Shop for salads
              Cabbage Patch
              Govinda's Natural Food
              Eat Good Stuff

              ...i have other places that offer plenty of healthy options/sections on menu, but not specifically committed to healthy.

              Eat Well
              3916 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029

              Govinda's Natural Foods Vegetarian Buffet & Dinner Club

                Likewise. For instance, Mendocino Farms has some delicious healthy options, but isn't specifically committed to healthy food.

                Mendocino Farms
                300 S Grand Ave Ste Lp40, Los Angeles, CA 90071
