Have you jumped on the juicing trend? Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has with their new fresh juice menu. Created to promote excellent health and boost energy, Kimpton’s collection of 16-ounce juices sells for $8-12 each and come in three nutritious blends. Executive Chef Christian Graves from Jsix in San Diego, who’s known for helping to reshape San Diego’s culinary scene through his “slow food approach” crafted the following juice recipes using healthy, local ingredients: Being Green (cucumber, celery, spinach, kale and lemon): Beets Me (red beets, carrots, ginger and cilantro); Local Only (mixture of local farm produce that varies by location).
Juicing is the latest in Kimpton’s list of wellness offerings for those who are committed to staying healthy while traveling. Last year, the company introduced a partnership with PUBLIC Bikes to offer free bike rentals at all its properties, as well as designed a Kimpton custom yoga mat in partnership with Gaiam available in all guest rooms. And in recent years, both the hotels and restaurants have introduced several healthier dining options for guests, including special menus for those with allergies or dietary restrictions like gluten-free.
The juices will be highlighted on breakfast, lunch and pool menus. All juices sold at Kimpton restaurants will be made using either a Cold Press Juicer, or Centrifugal Juice Extractors.

- Blvd 16; Los Angeles
