The new 'budget' Whole Foods opening soon in Silver Lake will get its very own vegan restaurant thanks to a New York transplant known for their beloved veggie burgers. While we'll still have to wait and see if the Whole Foods '365' slated to open in May will get a tattoo parlor or record shop, it looks like there is some gourmet vegan fare in-store courtesy of NYC-based by Chloe. According to Eater LA, the all-vegan hotspot, founded by L.A. native and chef Chloe Coscarelli along with Samantha Wasser, will be bringing their popular plant-based eats to a neighborhood already primed for the meat-free fare.

The menu at the new by Chloe hasn't yet been finalized, but it may offer many of their fan-favorites, like their Guac Burger—considered by some as the best veggie burger in NYC—and their addictive mushroom vegan bacon, which comes scattered on their kale Caesar salad and mac n' cheese. They'll also likely have other veggie-based sandwiches, salads, air-baked sweet potato fries, cold-pressed juices, along with dairy-free ice cream and other sweets. And since it looks like you'll be able to drink beer and wine at the new Whole Foods, hopefully you can enjoy a drink with your veggie burger.

The location is planned to open simultaneously with the '365' store and is expected to have a full dine-in restaurant, as well as options to eat in the communal portion of the grocery store or to take out.

And if the lines get long at by Chloe—as they are sometimes known to do at their NYC location—you can always head over to Moby's Little Pine for some more vegan options.
