Culver City just got more hip with the grand opening of Sage Organic Vegan Bistro! Whether you’re a vegan or just looking for something different, Sage offers delicious food and organic cocktails. The menu also offers KindKreme, plant-based “Icekreme” using organic, local, and sustainable ingredients. The event drew in a huge celebrity crowd including Co-Owner Woody Harrelson.


Celebrity Attendees included Owen Wilson, Anthony Kiedis & Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Moby, Mark Webber, and many more. Musical guests Jason Mraz, The Make Peace Brothers, Me and Mr. Cassidy and The Yellow Marbles entertained the crowd. Also supporters from Peta, Mercy for Animals and No Kill LA were in attendance.


We had a chance to taste the hummus with flat bread and bruschetta topped with avocado. The drinks were amazing! If you order the “Mollie’s Margarita,” we must warn you, it’s extra spicy with muddled habanero and jalapeno peppers. The Basil Mint Mojito was very refreshing and a nice cool down from the spicy drink.


Owner Mollie Engelhart mentioned this about her restaurant, “As a California business, Sage has access to the freshest produce and we will change the menu before shopping for produce from half way around the world. We focus on small, traditional farms that are pesticide free transitional or certified organic first before turning to large-scale mono crop industrial organic. It’s not just about labels – it’s about environmental and human impact. Local is as important as organic. We are proponents of a vegan diet because it is the most environmentally sustainable diet for the world in which we are living. 80% of our customers are non-vegan so every meal they choose at Sage saves resources that would otherwise be wasted.”


We definitely recommend trying Sage! The restaurant is beautifully decorated with an eclectic, outside patio that is beautiful at night. We are sure this will become a celebrity hotspot for the Hollywood Vegan crowd!
