A collaboration between Chicago hospitality collective Element Collective, award-winning chef Jared Van Camp and lifestyle guru Anne M. Owen, OWEN + ALCHEMY provides locals with a counter-service menu of cold-pressed juices, superfood smoothies and plant-based bites. If that’s not enough for you, there’s also an assortment of uber-healthy concentrated shots and herb supplements. If you can’t make it to Chicago, a simply keystroke can enable you to order the juices online. Those who get to be at the location in real-time have the added perk of the holistic cafe. There’s a selection of customized juice cleanses and programs among decor that features local artists and artisan furnishings. Juicing with a culinary expertise. Who knew the two elements could have such beautiful chemistry?
