It would be remiss to visit Los Angeles’ coastline without a stop at The Butcher’s Daughter in Venice. The eatery’s name — which belies its offerings, as the daily-changing menu is entirely vegetarian — is as much as staple of west side conversations as are kombucha and CrossFit.
The interiors of the attractive juice bar and cafe are meant to reflect a modern take on an old-world butcher shop, with “a blend of feminine and masculine energy,” according to founder Heather Tierney. The Venice hot spot mixes industrial materials such as concrete, steel and iron with light-grain wood, white brick and geometric-patterned tile. True to California style, greenery abounds: on tables, hanging from the rafters and spilling out of baskets suspended from the ceiling.
The restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, boasts a top-notch staff, with food and juice chefs whose backgrounds include time at Thomas Keller and Jean-Georges Vongerichten venues, as well as beloved Venice spot Superba Food + Bread.
Weekend brunch is arguably the most popular draw at The Butcher’s Daughter. There will be a line, and you will have to wait for a table, but the patient shall inherit the earthy delights of the brunch menu, which run the gamut from healthful smoothies and cold-pressed juices to avocado toast Benedict, huevos rancheros and a hearty veggie burger.
And don’t miss a caffeine boost: Wellness Lattes offer a twist on classic coffeeshop drinks, with ingredients such as turmeric, cayenne, reishi and raw honey.
