Irvine Spectrum is getting yet another new restaurant. This time it's Chef Art Smith, Tal Ronnen and Jeremy Bringardner's health-food concept called LYFE Kitchen, which stands for "Love Your Food Everyday". It's planning to open at the outdoor mall in November, next to TLT Food (which is The Lime Truck's brick-and-mortar joint) and Pho Saigon Pearl's second Irvine location.

There are already locations elsewhere, including two in L.A. According to the Irvine Company description, the menu will feature "chef‐inspired, delicious recipes and plant‐based proteins." Also, all LYFE Kitchen dishes reportedly "contain fewer than 600 calories and 1,000 milligrams of sodium, with most choices containing much less."
If you recognize the name Art Smith before, he was on Top Chef Masters but might be best known as Oprah's personal chef.More »
