NEW ORLEANS – Cofounded by a world-renowned integrative medicine expert, and financially backed by Oprah Winfrey, True Food Kitchen is an award-winning restaurant chain that prides itself on a curated menu, rooted in the principles of the anti-inflammatory diet. It’s inspired by the philosophy that food should make you feel better, not worse, and that delicious meals and beverages can serve as the foundation for a life well lived.

Launched in 2008 in Phoenix, Arizona, True Food Kitchen operates 28 locations in 12 states. The first Louisiana location of True Food Kitchen will open on Wednesday, Sep. 25, in The Arts District of New Orleans (801 St. Charles Avenue). It’s currently hiring employees.

Situated on the first floor of The Julia at St. Charles apartment building, the eatery spans approximately 6,500 square feet of a dining area that includes a covered patio, two private dining rooms, and an open kitchen. With seating for 218 patrons, True Food Kitchen features natural woods, greenery and eco-friendly materials and dining chairs made of recycled soda bottles.

The restaurant’s menu rotates seasonally to showcase the freshest produce and nutrient-dense ingredients, and caters to a variety of preferences of all kinds with gluten-friendly, vegan and vegetarian options. The new fall menu comprises roasted beet and goat cheese flatbread, butternut squash pizza, Thai coconut sea bass and the brand’s never-before-seen unbeetable beet burger, among other seasonal items. The restaurant’s scratch bar will serve freshly pressed natural beverages, organic teas, and cocktails, like the ginger margarita and the pom collins.
