Casual Dining at LYFE KitchenIMG_2890

With an organic modern decor, earth toned furnishings, and photos of sprawling farmland, the restaurant welcomes guests with a live herb wall in the entrance. Although the herbs growing on the display are not used in the actual cooking, the sight and smell of the fresh chives, bay leaves, lemon balm, dill and basil is enticing.

Food to Love at LYFE Kitchen

IMG_2889The restaurant’s slogans, “Love your food everyday” and “Taste you can trust,” scrolled across the walls at the Irvine Spectrum, California location, seem to imply that the food they are serving will be something the customers will enjoy and be thankful for. With a menu that offers vegan, gluten-free, nut-free options, there seems to be items for the traditional foodie, as well as those with dietary restrictions. The chicken is free-roaming and antibiotic free and the Mahi Mahi is line caught.
