365 is like Whole Foods’ less pretty, but nicer younger sister. This 28,000 square foot location doesn’t have the same bells and whistles the traditional Whole Foods are known for, but, on the upside, it’s more affordable.

FLASH FINDS – New and unique products exclusive to 365 by Whole Foods, that are only available for a limited time. Of course, the bummer is that you have to get them while supplies last, but it’s cool that they are teaming up with some of the big names (CoolHaus Ice Cream, Pop Art Popcorn, Momofuku) to bring more affordable options to the public. BONUS! We’ve got a bottle of Ssam Sauce by Momofuku that we’re giving away on our Instagram page! See Ssam Sauce post for details.

by. CHLOE – by. Chloe is a dining space in 365 that opens after Memorial Day. The menu will be vegan signature items from the NYC based acclaimed Chef Chloe Coscarelli of the by. Chloe restaurant in NYC.

teabotteaBot – This is the first teaBot to hit North America and you can watch a demo here. teaBot is a loose leaf, single serve tea making machine. The best part is, you get to customize your serving! As you can see in the video, I prefer my tea moderately hot, so I was able to adjust the temperature. Since I had a blend of 2 teas, I was able to decide that percentage of portion size as well. And it’s only $3 a cup! That’s cheaper than getting tea at a coffee shop. This is a start-up company out of Canada but teaBots will be added to all 365 by Whole Foods locations, and I predict long lines for them, cause it’s so cool!

Allegro Coffee CRAFT BREW BAR – 8 AM – 9 PM, seven days a week, you can have a beer or wine at 365! You know how much we love day drinking and shopping at Girls on Food (back me up on this one ladies!) and what’s better than day drinking and shopping? I vote NOTHING! There is also a happy hour in development, and when we get details on that I will update you!



Actress and Founder of Girls on Food: I was born and raised in the suburbs of Sacramento, California. I grew up a typical “McDonald’s kid”. I was very picky about what I ate and refused to try new foods. No fun, I know. My Mom started taking me on trips to Europe when I was a teenager and that’s when my palate for finer foods began to develop. Some of my most memorable favorite meals include Veal Bolognese in Rome, Gyros in Athens, Paella in Lisbon and Duck L’Orange in Paris. While this helped me grow out of a fast food phase, I still eat out quite a bit. I know I should be at home cooking, but I love dining out. I started working in restaurants in various front of the house positions at age 15. Since my start, I’ve worked in every casual restaurant setting you can think of: a teriyaki stand, brewery, sushi nightclub, trendy Mexican, family-style Italian, American diner, pizza parlor and even a BLT themed food truck. I can't help but notice that many of the LA food bloggers don't have any sort of background working in a restaurant. A lot of my perspective on food and dining out comes from my years of experience in the biz. Since starting this blog, I have shot appearances on a couple of cooking competition shows as a taster (including MasterChef Junior and another upcoming show). We have also started producing a Youtube Channel. IMDb page here: For this site I contribute content from all over Los Angeles (and the world) to showcase my favorite fine-dining spots, steakhouses, exclusive supper clubs, Hollywood nightlife and our very own #GOFx events, which I plan and coordinate.
