What You'll Get
Vegetables are the antizombie, rising out of the ground to demand we devour their artichoke hearts and cauliflower brains. Hunt down some new green friends with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of contemporary macrobiotic fare for dinner at M Café de Chaya, with locations in Beverly Hills and Hollywood. Dinner is served starting at 4 p.m.
M Café de Chaya culls fresh, nutrient-dense veggies and fish to assemble a macrobiotic menu that eschews the meddling of refined sugars, eggs, diary, red meat, and poultry. Entree salads such as the M Chopped lead the leafy charge with mixed greens, chickpeas, herb-baked tofu, umeboshi-pickled radishes, and tempeh “bacon” ($11.45). Amid a battalion of sandwiches and wraps, the Big Macro burger smuggles a whole-grain-rice-and-veggie patty into bellies inside a house-baked whole-wheat bun ($9.95). Sushi rolls ($2.25–$2.75 à la carte) round out the menu with tofu, tuna, shrimp, or salmon clad in brown rice harvested from California’s Koda Farms by quail paid a humane living wage.
Surrounded by simple tables both inside the European-style café and on the patio, baristas squeeze an ever-expanding array of fruit and veggie juice blends and pour coffee drinks ($2.75–$4.75) with LAMILL beans. A rotating selection of Babycakes NYC treats ($3.50–$4.50) fêtes vegans, the gluten-averse, and those who have simply had their houses egged on one too many Halloweens with classic cupcakes and other desserts.
