It’s called Juice NV, but those last two letters could just as easily be LA. The new location, inside Look Style Society at Town Square, feels like it would fit as well in a posh Beverly Hills salon as it does in our outdoor mall.
The small space serves smoothies, juices and an assortment of energizing vegan meals. My favorite smoothie is Almond Delight ($9.95), which contains almond milk, strawberries, banana, almond butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract and sea salt. It tastes like a fruity milkshake with the sea salt elevating the rest of the players.
You can’t go wrong with any of the sandwiches. Avocado pesto ($8.99) is one of the great bites in the city, vegan or otherwise, with avocado, arugula and walnut pesto all working in sync. Almond butter and jam ($5.99) uses strawberries to raise the game, a treat for kids and adults.
The kale chips ($8.99) ain’t cheap but they are addictive, crispy chips tossed with chipotle sauce and coconut aminos for super savory goodness. If you’re looking for something a little sweeter, the tropical açai bowl with spirulina ($8.99) lives up to its name with pineapple, orange juice and mint. I’m not sure if the chia pudding with berry jam and granola is a main course or a dessert, but I’m happy to eat it for either.
