Gratitude opened in Beverly Hills in May. A spin-off of the popular Cafe Gratitude collection of vegan, plant-based restaurants spread throughout California, the sunny spot has light wood floors, white and beige seating options, and touches of greenery throughout. Food and beverages are named after positive adjectives meant to complete the phrase “I am…”; for example, salads are named “Infinite” and “Gracious,” while a macrobiotic bowl is named “Whole.” Cocktails also have a health-conscious bent, like the “cleansetini” with alkaline vodka, ginger, and cayenne pepper. The indoor-outdoor space spans 3,600 square feet. The inside area seats 40 or holds 65 for receptions, while the patio seats an additional 42 or holds 50 for receptions.
