L’Eau de Vie Organic Brasserie, the eatery in the former Inn at The Black Olive space focusing on a plant-based menu and craft drinks, will have its grand opening this Saturday, offering raffle prizes in addition to food and drink.
As The Sun previously reported, the restaurant founded by chef/owner Elena Johnson, who also operates the catering business Nourrie Cuisine, opened back in September.
Though the name is French, for “Water of Life,” the brasserie’s menu isn’t limited to food from the famously food-focused European country. The dishes include paninis and sandwiches, entree salads, snacks and sides, and seasonal dishes–all of it completely vegan.
The focus, Johnson said, is about using quality ingredients, many of which are made from scratch, like the eatery’s breads (including gluten-free options) and bagels.
“This is how I want to cook–clean food with simple ingredients. I love being able to
recite a dish’s components to a guest from memory because it’s uncomplicated, real food,” she said in a statement. “We have an open kitchen–both literally and figuratively. We want people to know what they’re eating and who’s making their meal.”
The restaurant is now open Monday-Sunday for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and will have brunch on weekends.
