We have so many great restaurants in NoHo, and many more on the way! For those of you who are looking for a healthy meal option, you don’t have to look too hard, because within a few block radius in the NoHo Arts District the choices are plentiful. The Federal: One of my absolute favorites is the Roasted Beet Salad. Using both red and yellow beats mixed with arugala, shaved fennel, orange, feta, basil, spiced pecan, white balsamic…..it’s an explosion of flavor and good nutrients to help you feel great, happy, and peppy! Their veggie burger is one of the best I’ve ever had too. The chefs here are health concious and tout that they will always be sure to include healthy food choices on the menu of their gastro pub eatery.
Fifty 2 Fifty at the Art Institute: They offer a Bison Burger (lower in fat and cholesterol than regular beef burgers) and use beet ketchup as a healthier alternative to traditional ketchup. The students here are eager to do a good job, so relax and let them show you what type of outstanding culinary skills and customer service they can “bring to the table”.
Pit Fire Pizza: Sitting at the crossroads of Lankershim and Magnolia, the epicenter of the NoHo Arts District, they serve up a Farmer’s Market Plate that’s sure to get you so energized you’ll want to jog over to the actual NoHo Farmer’s Market (on Saturdays). The plate features braised chickpeas with chard and harissa, roasted sunchokes, roasted brussel sprouts, roasted rainbow carrots with chili honey and rosemary.
Eclectic Wine Bar and Grill: The orginal NoHo place to eat and be seen! For years, they’ve always done a great job on the Grilled Atlantic Salmon, and with all those heart healthy Omega 3’s, you’ll feel like running out into the streets shouting “I LOVE NOHO”!
