Brentwood’s A Votre Sante restaurant earned its place in Los Angeles sports folklore Sunday morning as Sports Illustrated reported that freshly minted Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James spent his Sunday morning eating at the Brentwood cafe with his wife Savannah.

California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom stopped by James’ table to ask where the free agent was headed. Meanwhile, former California First Lady Maria Shriver made an appeal to James to join the Lakers. James announced through a press release on Klutch Sports Group’s letterhead Sunday afternoon that he would sign a four-year $154.3 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

A Votre Sante’s clean-food menu is nothing if not aligned with James’ eating habits. The NBA superstar is famous not only for his abilities on the court, but his ability to stay on the court itself. James reportedly spends $1.5 million on maintaining his body every year, and has been known for sticking to notoriously challenging diets including cutting out sugar, carbs, and dairy for 67 days.

The 33-year-old father of three has yet to miss significant time due to injury in his 15-year career, and is coming off one of his strongest performances in 2017-2018 where he led the Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year. With two homes in Brentwood, one wonders where LeBron will dine next in Los Angeles. James is also a partner and owner of multiple Blaze Pizza outlets, and there are plenty of opportunities for the NBA star to open more locations here in Los Angeles.
