LYFE Kitchen Opens Its Doors, Brings Lifestyle Brand to West Hollywood

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On April 22, 2015, LYFE Kitchen will celebrate its Grand Opening in West Hollywood, CA. In a twist on traditional ribbon cutting ceremonies, LYFE Kitchen restaurant team invites the community to join its Sproutcutting Ceremony, farmers market, and tasting event on Wednesday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m. at LYFE Kitchen West Hollywood.

Following the Sproutcutting, LYFE Kitchen CEO Chance Carlisle and the restaurant team will honor LYFE Kitchen Executive Chef Art Smith for his tireless work to provide great tasting, good for you food, which is the heart of LYFE Kitchen's innovative, unique menu.

"Chef Art Smith created the vision for LYFE Kitchen right from his home kitchen, and led us on our taste quest to bring chef-inspired, seasonal dishes to our customers," said LYFE Kitchen's CEO, Chance Carlisle.

In addition to Chef Art Smith, LYFE Kitchen is also supported by Executive Chef Jeremy Bringardner. Together these culinary artists take great care to develop innovative dishes using the highest quality, freshest ingredients that meet LYFE Kitchen's standards for taste, nutrition and social responsibility.

"I proudly describe our food and beverages as delicious, familiar, and good for you," said Art Smith, Executive Chef of LYFE Kitchen and Oprah Winfrey's former personal chef. "You really can Love Your Food Everyday at LYFE Kitchen, and feel good about the choice you've made to dine with us."

Every dish on the LYFE Kitchen menu features locally-sourced ingredients wherever possible. In southern California, LYFE Kitchen purchases a variety of exclusively fresh, local fruits, vegetables herbs and spices. Local farmers provide LYFE Kitchen with beets, Brussels sprouts, whole garlic, yellow onion, frisee lettuce, and butternut squash among others. In addition, LYFE Kitchen has local winery partners located in Santa Barbara County: Au Bon Climat Winery for its Pinot Noir, Beckman Winery for its LeBec Rhone Blend, Simi for its Sauvignon Blanc, and Sanford Winery for its Chardonnay. We also offer delicious local beers, including Mission Hefeweizen and Strand Atticus IPA.

Each menu item contains less than 600 calories and 1,000 milligrams of sodium. The menu caters to individual dining philosophies, desires, and tastes for everyone in the family. For breakfast, customers might choose buttermilk pancakes with fresh berries, Greek yogurt, and pure maple syrup or a spinach and avocado frittata served with chipotle potato hash and salsa fresca. For lunch, a snack or dinner, diners might select a Pizzanini with grilled vegetables, goat cheese, mozzarella, and basil in a stuffed pizza sandwich, served with pomodoro dunking sauce. Customers interested in filling their plates with super foods will be pleased with the variety and options available, including a Buffalo Chicken Wrap with avocado, black beans, Greek yogurt and kale and Hibiscus Beet LYFE Water infused with hibiscus tea, beet, apple, lemon and ginger. LYFE Kitchen also serves several signature meat and fish dishes, including Chef Art's very own "unfried chicken," as well as full, special menus for those who choose to eat gluten free, vegetarian or vegan. The Child's Menu offers a special and surprising treat for parents looking for great tasting, good for you food for their children with options like cheesy flatbread and fish or tofu tacos (our delicious Child's Tofu Taco was voted one of Parents Magazine's Top 20 Dishes for Children in 2015).

LYFE Kitchen is also one of the most ethically and environmentally conscious restaurants in the country. The restaurant uses 100% grass-fed steaks, antibiotic and hormone free meat and poultry and many organic ingredients. The West Hollywood restaurant is seeking LEED certification, using low-voltage lighting and 100% recycled material for table and countertops. It also fits other sustainability criteria.

General Manager Ken Hall leads the West Hollywood restaurant team. He is a local resident and hospitality expert. Hall said, "I'm proud to be part of LYFE Kitchen and the West Hollywood community, and I'm pleased that our restaurant gives neighbors great taste, nutritious food and beverages, in a welcoming environment. We look forward to meeting and serving all of our customers from the area, and I encourage them to reach out to me directly for any special accommodations."
