As if we needed another reason to toss our hard-earned money into Whole Foods, they’ve gone and given us one: say hello to LV Bar.
That’s right. Some of our precious Whole Foods in the Valley got a nice little makeover and now offer — gasp — restaurants where we can go and put more of the Whole Foods executives kids through college.
However, unlike the pricey fare offered in the grocery, LV Bar is budget-friendly (as much as you can write budget-friendly and Whole Foods in one sentence).
We particularly like this version of the WF restaurant at Town Square (there is also Sprockets inside Green Valley’s WF) for its darker lighting, live music and DJs on weekends and general chill ambience. Staff are friendly, the chefs take time to come out and chat, the happy hour (and booze in general) is cheap and the food? Well, it’s pretty darn good.
They’ve got a pretty hefty vegan menu with some seriously good options including the BEYOND MEAT BURGER with Fieldroast cheese.
For starters, grab the cauliflower nachos. Then, of course, chow down on the burger. If you prefer a healthier option, their menu is seasonal, but there are always salads, sushi and bowls of goodness to enjoy. They’ve got specials nightly, too, including some vegan options.
Dessert? Hello, vegan chocolate cake with soy whip.
Prefer the food they serve in the store instead? No worries. Simply purchase it and take it in to LV Bar to eat there.
