Beverly Hills Is Getting Its Very Own High-End Version Of Cafe Gratitude
Gratitude, the third iteration of Cafe Gratitude's growing L.A. empire (see: Cafe Gratitude as version 1.0, and Gracias Madre as 2.0), will be debuting in Beverly Hills' Golden Triangle on May 24. The ritzy Canon Drive location (Gratitude, it seems, is basically just a slightly higher-end version of Cafe Gratitude) will be Gratitude's second location after the concept premiered in Newport Beach (re: Orange County's Beverly Hills) last year.
“I’m so excited to see Gratitude come to life in my hometown of Beverly Hills and to introduce Los Angeles to this restaurant that represents a lifestyle that so many of us aspire to.” Lisa Bonbright, CEO of Gratitude's owner Love Serve Remember, said. “Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or a leisurely sit down experience with cocktails, Gratitude has something for everyone.”
Gratitude's menu will be designed by Executive Chef Dreux Ellis, and the beverage program will be helmed by Gracias Madre's Jason Eisner. Look for several Cafe Gratitude fan-favorites to appear on the menu, including the pad thai (I Am Liberated) and mole enchiladas (I Am Elated). Additional items specific to Gratitude's Beverly Hills location will be rolled out after its opening. As for drinks, a proprietary kombucha flavor will find its way into the I Am Star—a cocktail of kombucha, alkaline vodka/tequila, and jalapeño.
Gratitude is located at 419 N. Canon Drive in Beverly Hills. It will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
