What happens when a cool chef such as Jared Van Camp (Nellcôte, RM, Kinmont), who has discovered that cold-pressed juices with breakfast and lunch help him combat his type 1 diabetes, meets a hip entrepreneur such as Anne Owen? They brainstorm their way into Owen + Alchemy, a new eight-seat chef-driven liquid apothecary.
Due to open in June, the place will offer more than 30 fruit juices, nut milks, and smoothies. “We will have a basic green—kale, parsley, spinach, celery—but with riffs,” says Van Camp. “We will definitely be doing something funny and a little weird with asparagus, in season, when we open.”
Owen is a smoothie girl during the day—she says it balances out her love of eating, drinking, and entertaining at night.
At O+A, you too can learn the joys and benefits of apple ginger juice and watermelon smoothies. Pulp fiction no more.
