On your next trip to Los Angeles, resist the call for brunch and spend the morning at The Springs in the Arts District instead. Grab a juice (the lemongrass-spiked carrot-coconut Rucksack is a standout) before a Vinyasa class from one of the exceptional instructors, then keep unwinding in the spa’s infrared sauna.
Once you’ve emptied your mind, feed your stomach. Chef Michael Falso (formerly of New York’s celebrated Pure Food & Wine) prepares green tea leaf salads and unfried falafel that bring a bright punch of flavor despite being made without meat—or even ovens. Best of all? The Springs is friendly to nonbelievers. Waiters will not bless your food with affirmations, nor will your aura be cleansed (unless you book a Reiki session). It’s a spot that you and your vegan friends can finally agree on.
If eating healthy just isn't enough for you, you might want to check out The Springs LA. The Springs offers a range of yoga classes, a wellness center for massages, a shop for eco-minded products, and of course a fabulous plant based restaurant to take it all in.
