First Look: By Chloe, a Vegan Spot in 365 by Whole Foods
The excitement about a new Whole Foods Market, even if it's the new millennial-friendly 365 branded concept, is palpable in Silver Lake. The parking lot was packed on day one (and no, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon did not get bit by a coyote there), shoppers seem happy with the prices, and who doesn't love a good DIY iced tea bar? But one thing this store has that others don't is its own vegan restaurant, By Chloe. The New York import from chef Chloe Coscarelli and Samantha Wasser sports an all plant-based menu, including its popular burgers, salads and air-baked fries, plus so much more.
The restaurant, which has its own seating and space, features housemade everything, including vegan cheeses; burger patties made of lentils, beans, tempeh and other non-meaty things; all the sauces and condiments; plus cookies, muffins and pastries. There's a full juice lineup (of course), plus smoothies and a daily lemonade offering. Ice creams are dairy-, gluten- and nut-free and come in flavors like Kale Cookies + Cream and Coffee Chia Chip. There's enough to pull in vegan shoppers and non-shoppers alike, and maybe even a few omnivores. Take a look at the sneak peek below. Hours are 10 AM-10 PM, Sunday; 11 AM-10 PM, Monday and Tuesday; 11 AM-11 PM, Wednesday through Friday; and 10 AM-11 PM on Saturday.
