West-Bourne brings a bit of the West Coast to New York with its Cali-inspired, veg-based menu and zero-waste philosophy. LA native Camilla Marcus delivers dishes centered around seasonal, local produce elevated with some of her favorite artisanal products from her home state. Everything is healthy and hearty (try the farm grains with almond butter)–and the wine list is solid, focusing on a large selection of varieties from California. Furthering the Cali influence is the sustainable design that includes reclaimed wood, custom furniture, and nostalgic, throwback-y art highlighting 1960’s LA. A portion of all meal proceeds goes toward The Door, a New York non-profit dedicated to youth empowerment. Photos: Nicole Franzen.
