  • Vegetarian Friendly
The Springs, a raw/vegan restaurant in the downtown Arts District, is more to the liking of my serious meat-eschewing pals. Located in an industrial building that also houses Farm Sanctuary, the nonprofit group that rescues farm animals, the 14,000-square-foot Springs is more in line with old-school veganism. It is a juice bar and yoga studio, an eco-friendly retailer, a spa and wellness center. Among the services offered are lifestyle and nutritional coaching and free meditation classes. Or you could sign up for the $325 New Year special detox package, which includes a three-day juice cleanse, two weeks of unlimited yoga and one colon hydrotherapy session. Its website advertises it as an "eco-vegan-mind-body-one-stop-shop." On the "about us" page, each team member's bio begins with his or her star sign. -- Besha Rodell Read the rest of our The Springs review here
