LYFE Kitchen Is a Green LIFE Style
Lots of Greens to be had at LYFE Kitchen in Tarzana which only opened a couple months ago. I was lucky to be able to give this new restaurant a try with a couple girlfriends. It’s quite remarkable and unique in many ways but I was especially impressed that LYFE Kitchen offers 3 types of menus; Everything, Vegan/ Vegetarian and Gluten-Free, and every dish is fewer than 600 calories and has less than 1,000 mg of sodium.
No giant sized servings here that can induce a heart attack or stroke or spike your blood sugar. It is all about a healthy LIFE. LYFE supports local farms by using their fruits and veggies, promotes sustainability, there is nothing artificial EVER, organic when possible, seasonal fresh herbs and spices are at the heart of their taste and it is an environmentally sound restaurant. And it is totally Delish! I LOVE LYFE Kitchen and I can’t wait to go back.
The restaurant is simple, modern, inventive, relaxed and very friendly with great meals that come from great ingredients. LYFE Kitchen is a LIFE style restaurant. There is truly something for everyone! This is a restaurant where no-one gets the short end of the stick. Meat lovers, vegans, vegetarian and gluten intolerant can easily dine together. They only use responsibly raised meats, local grown fruits and veggies, rich whole grains and with each new season fresh herbs and spices are at the heart of their singular, delicate taste…the taste of LYFE. There is even a community table so you can socialize and meet new people if you are so inclined. Plus it is very reasonably priced. Award winning executive chefs, Art Smith and Tal Ronnen, personally created the menu. Their motto is “Fast, Good and Good For You”.
They take their commitment to environmental responsibility very seriously. Only sustainable building materials are used in all their restaurants. The individual tables are made from bamboo and the community table is made from Sequoia wood, the patio furniture is made from recycled milk and juice cartons. All LYFE Kitchen Locations, (Tarzana, Culver City and soon West Hollywood), are certified Platinum under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System. This is more than just a place to grab a bite…it is an inspiration. Hats off to LYFE!
