Extra, extra! Read all about it: Fresh gets fresher tomorrow with the opening of Clover, a juice bar and cafe from Cardiff Giant (The Hudson, The Churchill) serving locally sourced, organic concoctions that promote salubrious living.
Witnesses describe a bright, airy space with subway tiles, reclaimed wood furniture, and street art. Sources confirm custom smoothies as well as a seasonally rotating selection of cold-pressed juices — such as the namesake Clover (kale, pear, cilantro) — that pack the equivalent of three pounds of produce into each bottle.
Power shots and raw kombucha on tap offer a quick boost, while cleanses provide a thorough one- to five-day detox.
Grab-and-go bites include cranberry-blueberry quinoa salad, roasted vegetable tofu wraps, and gluten-free baked goods from Lauren Lobley of Charm City Cakes.
Juice heads will be quick to respond to the scene, with health nuts in hot pursuit.
Clover, 342 South La Brea Avenue, between West Third and West Fourth Streets, Mid-City (323-609-3903 or cloverjuice.com).
