GREENLEAF Gourmet Chopshop, Hollywood

In LA Dining by Kathryn Lejeune

Can a restaurant be both diet conscious and indulgent? Can farmhouse style be sleek?  Greenleaf’s newest location in the heart of Hollywood answers those questions with a very firm yes. Their gourmet approach to health-oriented cuisine proves that casual dining doesn’t mean a lack of style. While sipping a spicy margarita and snacking on wild mushroom truffle pizza around an outdoor fireplace, it is easy to completely forget that Greenleaf is a health restaurant.

“Our mission is to make the modern dining experience healthy, delicious and enjoyable,” says Greenleaf Founder, Owner and “Commander in Leaf” Jonathan Rollo. “This means that Greenleaf is continuously evolving the concept while focusing on fresh, organic and local ingredients as the foundation for delectable dishes.”

Each of Greenleaf’s five locations strive to reflect the community and area it serves. So it’s no wonder that, after Rollo and his team spent months researching, the arrival on Hollywood & Argyle signaled their first ever cocktail menu. The full bar serves up classic cocktails all between 200 and 300 calories, which makes for the perfect guilt free place to unwind after work or have brunch with friends.

Diners can sit at the long bar, or enjoy the lush plant filled patio. Those in a hurry can simply grab a salad or wrap to-go for a hassle free meal. For private parties or presentations, a room in the back of the restaurant features a gorgeously massive plank table and big screen TV.

Inspired by a range of cuisines, Greenleaf nevertheless plays the classics. Do not miss the turkey melt on a warm pretzel bun or the grilled vegetable goat cheese pizza. The build you own salad option means that there are literally thousands of different healthy, organic meals to be had here. Truly, Greenleaf knows how to live up to their motto, “Eat well, live well.”
