Life Bistro is an up and coming vegan restaurant here in Atlanta, though they are new, they have really made a name for themselves. Life Bistro is one of the first and only vegan fine-dining experiences in the city. Inside you’ll find a beautiful dining room perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and date night. They have a one-of-a-kind juice bar where they serve alkaline friendly health and wellness shots as well as cold-pressed juices, coffees, and teas. Atmosphere aside though, they are incredibly focused on ensuring that their food is nutritious, filling, and diet friendly. Everything on the Life Bistro menu supports the alkaline diet, and comes seasoned to perfection. If you are not aware of the alkaline diet, it uses plant-based and whole foods to work towards a healthy pH within your body. While we can’t change our body’s natural pH levels with the food we eat, the diet is based on the idea that you can make it a little easier on your body to process acids by eating foods that are naturally more alkaline than acidic.
Herban Fix is an exciting, contemporary restaurant serving chef-inspired takes on vegan pan-asian dishes for both lunch and dinner. On sundays, they offer a brunch buffet complete with mimosas and other delicious cocktails and infusions. Herban Fix is run by chef Wendy Chang, a veteran in the high-class Atlanta restaurant scene. She started Herban Fix to blend her passion for pan-asian cuisine with her dreams of providing high-quality, healthy vegan food while also making the environment a better place. The meat and dairy industries are the top contributors to global pollution. By switching to a mostly plant-based diet, we can reduce our carbon footprints while also looking and feeling better. Green and healthy is the standard at Herban Fix, and the quality of the food really speaks for itself. Be sure to try the seared mushroom steak sometime.
