Leaf in Culver City

In follow up to the "Vegetarian in Culver City" thread from last week:

I had lunch at Leaf last week with a small group. It was good for this genre of restaurant. Everything was fresh, and the portions seemed larger than you might expect at this kind of place. The atmosphere was rather spartan, and all of the employees were young, hip, healthy looking types.

Mostly the choices are wraps and salads. I had a 3-way sampler ($7.95) of a "bedouin burrito" (hummus-based), "flying falafel" (made with dehydrated, instead of fried, croquettes of falafel and tahini), and "wakame wonder" (seaeed in a sesame ginger dressing). They also have a few soups and a big drink selection. My lunch companions all seemed to like the place.

I don't think this is the place that will convert meat lovers into vegetarians, but if you are open to eating natural food, Leaf is good.
