Jewel, Los Angeles, CA

Jewel Restaurant Review

: In Virgil Village, this hip plant-based restaurant offers a menu based on California produce, and with the exception of eggs is free from all dairy and animal products; it's also gluten-free. Look for the Black Diamond pizza made with spinach-artichoke “cheese” and a charcoal crust; hearts of palm and chickpea “crab cakes” with preserved kumquat aïoli; and forbidden fried rice with kimchi and gochujang. Specialty grain bowls spotlight lacto-fermented veggies and pickles, sea vegetables, fruits and legumes. For beverages find UNITY coffee drinks and superfood cold-pressed juices.
