Separate Vegan Menu, Good Food
Posted on 02 / 27 / 2013
I had read about this place opening on HappyCow, so my friend and I stopped in this week. It had just opened, and the staff was still practicing their craft. Here's my Lyfe Kitchen review.
It's conveniently located in downtown Culver City alongside a plethora of restaurants (somewhat across the street & diagonal from vegan Native Foods). The restaurant itself is gorgeous with simple modern decor, natural wood, airy, huge space. The interior is really deep, and seating is divided into different styles/areas from hard chairs to soft sofas to outside as well as a somewhat private alcove in the way back.
The menu rack includes a fully vegan menu with many different dishes. There's also a regular menu as well a dedicated gluten-free one. From the vegan menu my friend and I got the tofu tacos (flavorful and excellent), a beet and farro salad (tangy and good), sweet potato fries (all right), the raviolis served with sauteed tender greens (yummy), a chocolate chip cookie (sweet), and a boudino dessert featuring a rich, creamy chocolate pudding over pomengrate juice-soaked chia seeds (divine).
The food was all good. The prices are reasonable/moderate. Would like to return soon to try their burgers and other vegan offering.
many vegan choices, good food, great space
