Los Angeles is overflowing with cold-pressed juice: On every corner you can satisfy your craving for the liquid essence of kale, apple and everything in between. But the best organic juice in town has actually been around longer than most L.A. residents, and you'll find it at Beverly Hills Juice. David Otto has been squeezing fruit and vegetables since 1975, and his drinks are as addictive as ever — with flavors ranging from tangerine coconut and apple strawberry to watermelon rind. Feeling run-down? Try the vegetable-heavy Green Genie or Big Ten. Recovering from last night? The apple-lemon–double ginger should calm you. The shop has a cultlike following: One sip of your juice mixed with “Banana Manna” (a house-made blend of frozen banana and crushed almonds or sunflower seeds), and you'll know why. 8382 Beverly Blvd., Beverly Grove. (323) 655-8300, beverlyhillsjuice.com. —Erin Lyall
