Tender Greens in Culver City

We had a party to go to in Culver City last night, so we said why not dine out in Culver City? We live only about 20 mins away from Culver City, but we never got around to going there. The area is filled with lots of good-looking restaurants and shops. A beautiful array of trees separates the wide pedestrian walkway from the traffic. Almost all the restaurants have outside seating. It was rainy last night for a change, and there weren't too many out, but it was still beautiful.

We went into this restaurant called Tender Greens. Not too fancy compared to other ones. You order food in advance and wait in line until you get your food. Semi-like fast food + carfeteria mixed together, but the big difference is what you get is much healthier and fancier. The menu choices are really simple. Either you get a "big salad" or "hot stuff from the grill" (four choices there - angus flank steak, "rocky junior" chicken, herb brushed local albacore, and oxnard vegetables). All dishes cost the same - just $10! We ordered angus beef, which came with mashed potatoes and a small salad on the side, and happy vegan salad, which had tabbouleh, green hummus, farro wheat, and some kind of eggplant stuff with lots of greens! Loved it.
