Last week Cafe Gratitude joined the ranks of the single-named A-list elite. You know you’re officially an icon when you can drop half your name (Beyonce, Kanye, etc.)
The brand new Gratitude Beverly Hills is an upscale version of their beloved crunchy chic cafes, and we have one thing to say about the new menu: cleanse-tinis.
The Cafe Gratitude team also opened vegan Hollywood hotspot Gracias Madre a couple of years back and we still can’t get enough of their plant-based tacos and endless outdoor courtyard. We love how these deeply healthful menus are making an impact on the way L.A. eats out on the town. Here’s what you need to know about their latest venture…
What We Ate: Plants, plants and more plants. The menu at Gratitude Beverly Hills features many of the same “I Am” classics from Cafe Gratitude as well as a few new special dishes. The cocktail list is pretty wild, including absinthe and green chlorophyll spritzers, spicy kombucha-tequila cocktails and the Cleansetini – a blend of alkaline vodka, lemon, turmeric, ginger, cayenne, maple syrup, and micro-filtered H2O.
Why We Ate It: Because we’re rightfully obsessed with the super crunchy, OG menu at Cafe Gratitude and Gratitude Beverly Hills simply takes things to the next level. Just as with Gracias Madre, Gratitude is also an easier sell to less wellness-minded friends – a good cocktail menu will do that.
Why You Need It: While there are lots of casual vegan cafes that serve up great food, few aim to nail the elegance of an upscale eatery like this one. Gratitude is the kind of reservation you’ll make for a date night or dinner with the parents.
