Greenleaf Gourmet Chop Shop Opens in Costa Mesa With A Promo
Are you ready for another salad restaurant? After Freshii, Saladworks and Tossed, now comes Greenleaf Gourmet Chop Shop in Costa Mesa. This one actually has been in the works for a while. You may remember that I wrote about the Beverly Hills-based concept about this time last year while they were still negotiating their lease for their first OC store in Costa Mesa.
Started by a couple of chef entrepreneurs who cut their teeth in the Patina Group restaurant empire (and who themselves struggled with weight issues), the focus is on healthier items and a whole lot of lettuce. The menu features salads with names such as "Kitchen Sink Cobb," "The Antioxidant Orchard," "Buffalo 'Wangs'" and the "Mexplosion."
