If there’s any justice, Lemonade will soon become a nationwide chain—that’s how smashingly good the food is here. A hip cafeteria with a sunny décor, its specialty is vegetables served in colorful combinations, like red quinoa with brussels sprouts or apple-braised red cabbage. You choose them all from a 20-plus bowl long salad bar. Don't want something cold? Lemonade also dishes up roasted meats, sandwiches, and a wide variety of other foods. And for dessert there is, yes, lemonade and a raft of tempting pastries, cakes and pies. Along with this outlet there are Lemonades in LAX Airport, in the Museum of Contemporary Art, and in Venice, Pasadena and Studio City.
