Cruciferous

OPENED 1029 DAYS AGO

Cruciferous is a vegan sit-down restaurant that’s just opened in Los Angeles.

You’ll find Cruciferous right next door to a more casual vegan spot, Doomie’s Home Cookin’. They’re also partnered with the recently opened Cocobella Creamery.

The Spot:

Cruciferous is one of LA’s latest restaurant openings. It’s located in a strip mall in Hollywood, a compact space with low-key furnishings and decor.

They’re a gratuity-free restaurant – instead of taking tips, a 20% charge is added automatically to the check. This policy is meant to ensure that staff is paid “fairly, responsibly and competitively.”

The Food:

The plant-based menu features small plates for sharing and locally sourced ingredients. The pasta is made from scratch; bread is freshly baked in-house; vibrant ingredients and flavors are abundant, including the likes of thyme, pumpkin seed, pepper, nuts, tea, goji berries and more.

Two dishes stand out. The whole roasted cauliflower, for one, is carved table-side and served with cashew cream cheese and organic pistachio oil. The other fan favorite is the General Tso’s fried Brussels sprouts – all the spicy sweetness you’d expect, minus the meat (and nut-free, too).

Lastly, great vegan desserts aren’t always easy to find, so don’t skip out on the roasted banana flan or the bao ice cream sandwich.

The Drinks:

Try an affogato or a soda float over a scoop of Cocobella Creamery ice cream.

The Damage:

Most items on the menu range from $14-18.

In a Nutshell:

Cruciferous brings a vegan fine dining option to LA’s culinary scene. Its concise, creative menu plays around with flavor and shows off the range that vegan cuisine is capable of achieving. Partnered with a handful of other big names in the vegan food industry, Cruciferous joins a fast-growing community.

Hollywood’s most recent restaurant and bar openings also include the Parker Room.
