Just when you’re about ready to punch your instructor after 60 minutes of breathless cardio and burning weight-training, they say the magic words and all is forgiven – “Now go get something to eat!” You know the drill – after your workout you need to eat to refuel, to give your muscles protein to grow, to replace glycogen stores.
Cronuts do NOT fulfill those needs. You need something healthy so you don’t throw away all that hard work. Taste Savant to the rescue! We asked them to help us pick some excellent healthy dining options around our West Hollywood location. If you haven’t heard of them – Taste Savant is THE place to start any search before dining out. They compile all the best critic, chef and industry expert reviews for only the very best restaurants. Taste Savant does all the work for you and more – providing menus, reservations through OpenTable, delivery by Seamless and GrubHub. You name it. Currently Taste Savant covers the Barry’s Bootcamp cities of Los Angeles, New York and Boston, with more coming soon.
Drumroll please, Taste Savant’s picks for the best spots around Barry’s Bootcamp WeHo are…
1. Connie and Ted’s
Connie and Ted’s is West Hollywood’s hottest new seafood joint. It’s on the latest Eater Heatmap and the critics are raving. It’s literally a 2 minute drive from our West Hollywood location. Lucky us!
Why Go – Seafood is so easy when you’re trying to stay on track and Connie and Ted’s is bringing some of the best and freshest available.
Post-Bootcamp Worthy – Oysters, Mussels (LA Weekly Recommended), Fisherman’s Stew, Steamers, Scallops (LA Times Recommended), Oysters, Deviled Oysters (Tasting Table Recommended)
Another super close and amazing restaurant is Eveleigh. Open for dinner, brunch and lunch on Fridays, we recommend grabbing a seat at the bar or better yet get a table at arguably the best patio in LA.
Why Go – Nothing better than this food with some great vitamin D on the patio.
Post-Bootcamp Worthy – Kusshi Oysters, Pot-Roasted Clams (LA Times Recommended), Hamachi Crudo, Roasted Heirloom Pumpkin Salad, Veg Out Smoothie, Granola, Roast Half Chicken, Halibut
3. Gracias Madre
Gracias Madre is another great hotspot. This is the newest restaurant from the Café Gratitude team. Hit Gracias Madre up for organic, vegan Mexican food. Reservations are encouraged so plan ahead!
Why Go – If you live a vegan lifestyle this should be your next outing and it pairs so nicely with an awesome workout!
Post-Bootcamp Worthy – Quesadilla De Calabaza (Tasting Table Recommended), Masa Sopes, Mole Enchiladas, Pepitas, Ensalada de Frutas, Sauteed Chard
4. Tender Greens
Tender Greens is LA’s top spot for gourmet salads. Let’s be honest sometimes even with our healthy recommendations we just need to go somewhere to keep us on track. Tender Greens is a great place for no nonsense healthy fresh food. Lucky enough there’s one right around the corner from Barry’s WeHo.
Why Go – Tender Greens makes it so easy when it comes to sticking to a plan and the ingredients are top notch. When you’re having one of those days and we all do, go here for the least amount of temptation to get off track.
Post-Bootcamp Worthy – Herb Brushed Tuna Sandwich, Chinese Chicken Salad, Tuna Nicoise Salad, Thai Shrimp Salad, Grilled Veggies Salad
