Bardonna's Santa Monica location sells fresh, but not too flavorful, salads and grain bowls - sorry, "squad bowls".
The food at Forage is fresh. The recipes are amazing. And they will plate you a nasty-good plate of baked mac n’ cheese that is definitely not Whole30 Diet approved. Damn you, farm-to-table morons. You got this one right.
