Tender Greens - Open & Excellent

Adam Fleischman | Jun 17, 200609:27 AM     19

Tender Greens opened in Culver City yesterday and was packed all day. The concept is healthy fast food, as in farmers market healthy, not vegan or raw. They serve the freshest salads with ahi, flatiron steak and free range chicken. As a quick casual place, it is way tastier and lighter than the standard mexi joints like Baja Fresh. Everything is made from scratch. And it is something Culver City needs, as there is a lot of places with heavy, greasy food (see Honeys Kettle Chicken) nearby.

I had a salad with sweet baby beets and the flatiron steak, and the best lemonade I have EVER tasted. $9 for the salad. As I work in CuCi, I will be eating there regularly.

Owner is chef Eric, formerly exec chef of Shutters. Nice space too, with outdoor patio.
