5 posh places to meet your client or bestie!

Do I Want This? Or That?

Ever have a hard time making a decision on where to go to eat? LA has so many choices sometimes it feels like there is nowhere to go or it is hard to come up with something. Kinda like when you are getting dressed and you have a closet full of clothes and still need to go shopping.

Jane Ella has put together a quick guide to help you with this dilemma. These are great places for brunch with a group of friends like Brick + Mortar, a quick lunch with a client like Redbird or some time to work out of the office with rooftop access like Eataly. We have even provided some vegan options so we have all our bases covered.

There are 3 different levels as the top level provides rooftop access to an enchanted outdoor experience, which could be a great workspace. There is a marketplace where you can indulge in a little gelato and pastries or shop around for the same ingredients used by the chefs like wine, veggies, meats, bread, cheeses fresh pastas and vinegars. The unique thing about Eatly, is that they offer cooking classes as well, so if you want to perfect your favorite Italian dish or learning for the first time they are able to help.

Gracias Madre in West Hollywood

or Gratitude in LA

For all our vegan eaters do not worry because we did not forget about you. Even though LA is the trendiest city sometimes finding vegan options can be a challenge so here are two restaurants that will satisfy your cravings. Gracias Madre has a Mexican inspired cuisine but it is all vegan! The layout is an open floor plan with simple pops of color. Café Gratitude is a plant-based restaurant with a variety of dishes. Both of these places are great to help you make healthier choices in life, try something new or spice up your palette with some new flavors.

Okay this list could go on and on so this isn’t every restaurant in LA but it’s a good start to get you thinking. I hope there are things that look familiar and some things that look new. Let us know what you think of these places you are trying them for the first time with #JaneEllaNewExpereince
