Our focus is being able to feed our guests the way I feed my own family. I take pride in sourcing the Freshest, Local and/or Organic Ingredients available each menu. At Nirvana Grille, we serve Free Range & Organic Poultry, 100% Sustainable Seafood, Meats Free of Antibiotics & Hormones and Organic Grass Fed Ground Beef.  Being conscious about the food we serve is important to me, but reducing waste by recycling our food scraps, all containers & bottles, and double printing all paper to reduce our environmental footprint is equally important to what we do as a company. Turning something useless into something amazing is one of my great passions when I cook!
Now more than ever, Thank You for the opportunity to invite you into our dining room, and truly an extension of my home and family. It is our pleasure to feed & serve you and my hometown community of Laguna Beach.

~ Chef Lindsay & The Nirvana Grille Family ~
