Lyfe Kitchen Set to Open

Californians will welcome the first of a 250-location healthy food empire—Lyfe Kitchen—this Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Lyfe Kitchen will open the doors of its new vegan-friendly restaurant in Palo Alto, CA. Lyfe stands for “Love Your Food Everyday” and Lyfe Kitchen plans to open an additional 250 locations over the next five years. Lyfe Kitchen was created by Art Smith and two former McDonald’s executives. Chef Tal Ronnen, who created recipes for Oprah Winfrey during her 21-day cleanse, was brought on to develop the vegan menu options, which include Tal’s Ancient Grains Teriyaki Gardein Bowl, Sweet Corn Chowder with cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs, and Chipotle Orange and Chayote Salad. Additionally, the restaurant will use all-natural, locally produced, sustainable ingredients and no dish will contain more than 600 calories.
