The cold-pressed organic juice craze continues its inexorable conquest of the Westside as evidence by the expansion of local chain Juice Crafters into the storefront at 2811 Ocean Park Blvd. in Santa Monica. Still in their soft opening, you can get 50% off through this Saturday. Read more about their menu and find other locations here.
In case you’ve been asleep in a cave for a while, fresh juicing is big right now. Riding on the popularity of places like Kreation are a new set of über-healthy vegetable and fruit juice purveyors. The latest is Juice Crafters at 11682 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood (near the corner of Barrington). After the usual challenges, I was informed that the permits came through, window paper is down, and they are set to open “in a few days”. According to the website, they also have plans to open in Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, and Venice as well. After all, who can’t use a little detox now and then?
