Musician Jared Stein and theatre manager Kimberly Helms created quite a happening in DTLA with The Springs. Expect a wild tangle of art, yoga, wellness, and detoxification all unfurled into a multifaceted harbor. Did we mention the food? Executive Chef Michael Falso, produces raw vegan delights where nothing rises over 118 degrees—the only heat felt is radiating from the intense focus of the staff, and a towering wall of dehydrators.

The menu at The Springs offers uncommon takes on a variety of common dishes, from an open-face Reuben to sweet corn ravioli to cheesecake. One particular standout is the spaghetti alla carbonara—a deep bowl filled by a knot of kelp and zucchini noodles slathered in rich black pepper sauce. The pasta is strewn with peas, asparagus, and mint resting against hunks of coconut bacon. “A lot of my food has references that are anchored in familiar dishes, flavors, or ideas, yet nothing is ever meant to be a complete or definitive representation of any one dish,” says Chef Falso. “I want people to see that this food is playful and innovative, while at the same time healthy. In a lot of ways it's stealth nutrition.”

Portions are generous—a half order of salad can make a whole meal—and dishes more filling than anticipated. “Since our food is raw, we have the advantage of retaining most, if not all, of the nutrients and fiber inherent in the original ingredients. For this reason, it's easier to feel full and fill up faster when it seems like you’re eating smaller portions,” explains the chef.

Biodynamic wines, organic beers, and sake cocktails provide a boozy balance for those so inclined. A imaginative selection of cold-pressed juices are available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or as a grab and go item to keep the glow buzzing the next morning.
