On the hunt for gourmet vegan food in Los Angeles? One spot many residents and visits overlook is The Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. Perhaps it's because their plant-based offerings are relatively new, or perhaps there's a resistance based on the upscale nature of the hotel brand. However, if you're looking for a fancy dining experience and phenomenal food you must visit one of the hotel's restaurants: Culina, Windows Lounge and Cabana. And if you're not in the LA area or planning a visit in the near future, you can whip up two of the new gluten-free dishes at home!
Last night my friend and I went to Ralphs market (Marina Del Rey). They have a surprisingly good vegan section there, along with organic and local produce. In each aisle there are cardboard flags that say "natural" to let you know where the healthy products are. They even have a health and green section on their website. As we were walking around I suddenly remembered hearing that Ralphs carries Daiya, so I started looking for it.
