New Atwater Village restaurant features a farm-to-table menu


ATWATER VILLAGEPalette Food and Juice, a “farm-to-table, fast casual” eatery, opened its doors late last month on Glendale Boulevard.

The restaurant prides itself on using only local, fresh ingredients. It was Chef Molly Fleming’s idea to keep farmers and vendors in mind when creating the menu.

“Most restaurants create the menu first, we’re going the other way around,” says spokesperson Nirav Mehta.

The the menu is set everyday based on the fresh produce they find. Items include a “build your own” bowl with protein options like tempeh, chicken, and bison. For a base, customers can select among several options, including brown rice or little gem lettuce, as well as an array of seasonal vegetables.

Customers can also order  a soup of the day and natural juices.

Not only is the food made from the scratch, so was the restaurant. Family and friends came together to help with construction,  paint the walls and even make the bowls for the approximately 20-seat restaurant.

“It’s like a family-run space right now, “ Mehta adds.

Palette remains in a “soft opening” phase, opening at 12 pm and closing when food runs out.  After the formal opening, the restaurant will be open from 11 am – 8 pm.

Palette is at 3193 Glendale Blvd.
