As build-your-own salad places go, Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop (with locations in Beverly Hills and Century City) is consistently one of our favorites. The local and sustainably farmed produce, the clean, flame-grilled proteins and the epicurean preparations make us wish there was a Greenleaf on every corner of the city.
With the opening of their new Hollywood location, we’re on our way to wish fulfillment—and then some. Not only does the new outpost make their stellar salads more accessible to Eastsiders, but it also elevates the Greenleaf concept to night-on-the-town dining.
Whereas their Westside locations offer only breakfast and lunch service, the Hollywood location—located next to the Pantages Theatre—is positioned for nightlife. Open daily until midnight, the restaurant offers full dinner service, an indoor/outdoor bar serving craft cocktails made with organic juices and a buzzy patio decked out with market lights and a fire pit.
That means you can enjoy some festive pre-theater dining, grab pre-game drinks before hitting the clubs or sidestep the boulevard’s greasy pizza joints for a healthy late-night snack. Creating your own salad is always fun, but we’re also partial to the specialty salads ($8 to $16) like the Antioxidant Orchard (bursting with vitamin-packed berries and nuts) and Zorra The Great (an updated Greek salad). Sandwiches, burgers, thin-crust pizzas and hot entrée plates round out the menu.
And with the new brunch service (Friday through Sunday from 8:00am to 3:00pm) featuring egg dishes and smoothies, you can follow your nightlife with a healthy morning after.
