Description

LA Weekly's Description

A line outside a restaurant in downtown Culver City is nothing new these days. You could probably put a “Sunday Brunch” sign outside a shoe store on Culver Boulevard and see a queue begin to curl down the block. But the line outside Tender Greens, the salad cafe opened by veterans of Shutters and Casa del Mar, is unusual in its velocity, the utter speed with which you find yourself facing down a counterperson who wants to know whether you want to trick out your big, stainless-steel bowl of organic Scarborough Farms greens as an ahi-tuna nicoise, a grilled-chicken Caesar, a mesquite-grilled flat iron steak salad or a Mediterranean-style grilled Oxnard vegetable salad. Tender Greens is the Cold Stone Creamery of the Alice Waters revolution, but with a pleasant, umbrella-shaded patio, organic lemonade with mint and a decent microbrew selection. Tender Greens may be the very first place in Los Angeles where it is possible to get a delicious meal made with locally grown, sustainable, Earth-friendly ingredients with less hassle (and not much more expense) than it would take to pick up a double scoop with Heath Bar bits. Don’t miss the chocolate cupcake sprinkled with toffee.

    Best salad in town for $10.00.

    Good lunch spot. Not SUPER fast, but also not a place to spend all afternoon. It's cafeteria style so you'll wait a minute for a seat with a tray of food in your hand, but yummy food it is!

    I love this spot. It features healthy, local, organic fare that's fast and super tasty. By far the best place to grab a salad, they also serve great hot dishes like grilled chicken, steak or fish and yummy, comforting soups.

    Best Greek lunch and dinner. Local and organic salads, hot plates and soups. Best mashed potatoes and seared tuna. -Tressa Williams, Launch My Line

    The grilled veggie salad is as diverse as it is yummy. Tip - try the mint lemonade for a refreshing pick-me-up

    Tender Greens may be the very first place in LA where it is possible to get an affordable and delicious meal made with locally grown, sustainable, Earth-friendly ingredients with almost no hassle!

    A Cafeteria-style eatery with fresh meats, chicken, and simple salads. The tomato soup makes a fantastic appetizer! -Kacy & Cori, The Real L Word

  • Epicurious on 08/23/10

    Most of the food served here is eco-friendly and it is all inexpensive too. Try body- and wallet-friendly treats like herb-brushed local albacore or chipotle bbq chicken salad in a picturesque locale.
