An oasis of wellness in the downtown Arts District of Los Angeles, The Springs welcomes stressed urbanites. The one-stop shop for healthful, sustainable living encompasses an organic juice bar, a 40-person yoga studio, a spa and wellness center, a vegan wine bar, and a raw vegan restaurant.

Here, intel about Salvia’s menu—which includes raw options—from chef Milton Landa.
