The lovely Laura (A Sunshine Mission) hosted a vegan bloggers meetup at Downtown LA’s The Springs Restaurant this past weekend and I was huymbly invited to a 7-course, chefs tasting menu on a Saturday night with a live band!
I had to think really hard about this one…YES, definitely yes!
The Springs is a wellness center located in a renovated, industrialized warehouse home to a raw, organic restaurant, a yoga studio, a juice bar and a retail shop. Moving deeper into the wellness center other services such as; reiki, massages, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and many more alternative practices are performed.
It’s quite impressive.
I have yet to venture deeper into the Springs, but I will say, I am definitely curious.
On this particular evening, a group of lovely ladies (and a couple of gentleman) gathered at the Springs Restaurant for a memorable dining experience.
Seventh Course and Final Course Black Chocolate
Dark chocolate cake, chocolate-buckwheat tuile, banana, candied walnuts, vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate sauce.
At the end of our seven course + palate cleanser dinner, I was thoroughly full with good food and was genuinely grateful for the wonderful individuals who surrounded me.
I commend the chefs for taking their raw (pun intended) talent to creative heights and inserting twists on traditional dishes. Some dishes I appreciated more than others (ohhh the black chocolate and the seaweed caesar salad) and some may have personally missed the mark (honey in the rangoon and the strawberry balsamic gazpacho), but all were apart of my remarkable Saturday night.
