The Juice, A Clean Cut Juicery Opening Soon in Highland Park

Those afraid of gentrification don't have to worry: it's already here.

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

Whether you want it or not, gentrification is happening in Highland Park and most people seem to be happy that one can safely walk around York Blvd in the middle of the evening. But with that comes some other modern conveniences, like a cold-pressed juice shop.

Welcome The Juice, the second location co-founded by Elizabeth Halpern. With a first outlet in Atwater Village, this spot hopes to bring something that's currently unavailable in Highland Park: raw, organic, cold-pressed juices. In addition to Halpern's creative (and healthy) combos, consider smoothies, shots, and even non-dairy vegan ice cream made from a coconut base.

The #4 juice is a popular order, with green apple, kale, lemon and ginger, or perhaps a sweet bottle of strawberry, apple, and coconut for a nice afternoon sip. Finally, the locally made young Thai coconut water, only $5 and the ideal hangover cure for area hipsters.

Though not officially signed off to open, the official debut should be some time in the next week pending final permits from the health department.
