Welcome to Jewel
Jewel is a plant-based restaurant—not specifically vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free—although many of our offerings do fit the bill.
Our food is inspired by the bounty of produce in southern California and features luscious salads , colorful burgers, mind-blowing pizza, warming bowls of pasta, and dynamic grain bowls with lacto-fermented veggies and bright pickles. The menu is inclusive of organic free range eggs to offer a healthy range of options.
Chef Jasmine Shimoda is classically trained, with over a decade of experience across kitchens in New York City. At Jewel, she channels her training and passion for excellence into a plant-forward, farmer-driven menu.
Sharky McGee is a native of the Philippines, where she studied hospitality and restaurant management.

Sharky joined Gjelina Venice in 2016, deeply drawn to their food philosophy and high standards.
Seasonal vegetables, sea vegetables, and fruits are the building blocks. Grains and legumes, superfoods, spices, nut butters, and cheeses are key players. Eggs can be added to your preference.
Refined sugars, processed ingredients, and products of industrial agriculture are never welcome.
