The Springs

Vegan Restaurant, Juice Bar, Spa, and Yoga Studio at The Springs in Downtown Los Angeles.  This meal is hosted.

Can’t remember the last time I’ve been this excited to blog about a new discovery.  That’s probably because there’s never been a place like The Springs before.

Housed in a former paper factory in downtown LA, the space is wide open and swimming in natural light.

When you first walk in, you’ll immediately notice their (all organic) juice/coffee/wine bar…

…which also spills into a pop-up shop.  Currently, the goods are from Atomic Garden in Oakland.

Hang out during the day, enjoy live music at night (the owners – partners in business/life – both come from a Broadway background)…

…followed by a visit to the Wellness Center for a massage, acupuncture, Reiki, or Infrared Sauna.

Of course, I was particularly interested in the food part.  The entire menu is raw and vegan!

Joy Osmanski and I sip on the “Bug Bite” – strawberry, apple, orange, and lemon juice…

…and noshed on chips and guacamole.

We were both pretty blown away – the culinary team did a tremendous job.  Sometimes raw food leaves me a little bit weirded out, intimidated (and still hungry) but these options were impressive and definitely filling.

Nacho and Tea Leaf Salads – hearty bowls packed with flavor.

…Black Sesame, Wasabi Pea, Beer, and Smoked Avocado Cilantro Ice Cream – kinda mind-blowing.  I’m currently writing an ice cream article for an outside publication and did not expect me to be wowed the way I was.

In fact, I had rather high expectations coming in visit The Springs, and they were exceeded.  Expect to see me back often – for my monthly massage, a yoga class, and to try this dinner menu!
