Donna Jean Is Opening in Los Angeles This Week

The San Diego-based vegan restaurant will open in Sherman Oaks on October 12.

San Diegans have been raving about vegan restaurant Donna Jean for years. Next weekend, Los Angeles is finally going to get a taste of the crave-worthy restaurant when Donna Jean opens its Sherman Oaks location.

New Vegan Restaurant in Sherman Oaks

Donna Jean is a vegan restaurant serving Italian-inspired dishes. The creative menu includes various pizzas, pasta, salads, and appetizers.

After calling San Diego home for the past five years, Donna Jean is finally making the much-anticipated expansion to Los Angeles. The new spot will be located at 4720 Woodman Avenue, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.

The restaurant will be opening for dinner service only. Initial hours of operation will be Wednesday-Sunday from 5-9pm. There will be free two-hour parking directly outside the restaurant, and valet service will also be available. Reservations are required.

The Sherman Oaks outpost will have several menu items exclusive to this location. Notable examples include the Scratch House Cheese Plate made with four different house-made cheeses and the Devil in Jersey City pizza.
