Are these our only ‘healthy’ options?  Not at all!  Simply ask a STONEFIRE team member for some of their personal favorites.  Why these items and not our entire menu?  This is certainly something we’re working towards at STONEFIRE, as we love to provide our guests with everything possible to ensure the best dining experience, but here is a little more information on what is currently required.

Here’s to healthy options at STONEFIRE Grill!

We're Here for YOU!

At STONEFIRE, we’ve become increasingly aware of our valued guests’ dietary needs, concerns and aspirations.  Now more than ever, people are concerned about what they eat, and we couldn’t be more supportive of this rising trend.  Launching our Healthy Alternatives menu at the end of March was the first step in a much larger project – full menu nutritional analysis, including allergens.  This is a huge endeavor, and we look forward to providing this information to everyone later this year!

For now, we’ll continue to do our very best to accommodate as many special requests as we can, as this OC foodie points out in her recent blog entry.

Here’s to healthy, delicious meals throughout Southern California!

Our Gluten-free and healthy menu options

Let’s face it – healthy restaurants Los Angeles are seemingly few and far between when it comes down to it.  Sure, many restaurants throughout Southern California are quick to talk about ‘health’, ‘healthy options’ and the like, but at STONEFIRE, we truly deliver on these notions.

Now, more than ever, maintaining a dynamic group of healthy restaurants is what we’re truly striving for on a daily basis.  For example, with allergens on the rise, gluten is one of the hottest topics out there, how many gluten free Los Angeles restaurants are there?  No, seriously, but that actually tastes good too?!  What about providing nutritional information that makes sense to valued guests?  At STONEFIRE Grill, we recognize what ‘health’ signifies to so many and aim to always accommodate as much as possible.

If we’re being really honest with ourselves, quality is hard to come by when speaking of healthy restaurants Los Angeles.  Sure, raw and organic restaurants present a variety of, well, deliciously raw and organic options that are certainly healthy, but they’re not always geared for the average consumer seeking a balance of overwhelming flavors AND health.  Combine this with the ability to provide value, and STONEFIRE Grill is the obvious choice in Southern California.  Since health and gluten-free options are becoming seemingly synonymous as of late, we’re proud to offer a gluten-free menu that is loaded with options – over 20 gluten-free menu items at these gluten free Los Angeles locations to be exact.  Looking for even more? Ask for our help in creating the perfect vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free menu for you and yours next time you’re in any one of our seven locations!  From Orange County to Ventura County, we’ve got you covered (and more locations are soon to come!).

 

Ok, well, maybe we’ve been rambling a little bit when it comes to healthy restaurants Los Angeles, healthy options, vegans, vegetarians, our gluten-free menu and just about everything else for that matter.  Instead of going on and on about it, we’d prefer to leave you with just a taste of what you’ve been reading up until this point.  What if  healthy restaurants Los Angeles could have 15 market-fresh salads on its menu?  And what if 7 salad dressings could be gluten-free?  What if vegans and vegetarians were given an animal protein alternative in the form of quinoa?  And what if these healthy restaurants had service in such a way that you, the paying and deserving guest, could modify the heck out of menu items so that it was made EXACTLY as you wanted? THIS is STONEFIRE Grill – fast, efficient, healthy, gluten free restaurants Los Angeles, hippie-friendly (oops, we meant vegan/vegetarian-friendly)…we could keep going, but that’s about it for now.  For more information on our healthful and allergen-conscious deliciousness, please Click here.  Looking for the nearest STONEFIRE location to you? Click here We look forward to serving you soon!

Recently, our Irvine location hosted a meetup for “BlogCrush,” reportedly the largest blogging group in Orange County! They came out to try our delicious food (including many of the items on our Healthy Alternatives menu), and they weren’t disappointed.

It seems that “TheModChick” agrees with me- our Healthy Alternatives are the perfect choice for summer dining, and they “taste GOURMET.” Check out her awesome review (with pictures) here.
