Opening alert: Project Juice in downtown Palo Alto

Uploaded: Apr 4, 2014
Downtown Palo Alto's first solo juice shop opened its doors Friday, April 4, at 575 High St.

Project Juice, a collaboration between a San Francisco couple and one Atherton resident, offers vegetable, fruit and other healthy combos in cold-pressed juice form, all between $9.25 and $10.25. You'll also find smoothie-like drinks (the "Mint Chip Shake" has banana, raw almonds, spinach, mint, cacao nibs, dates, vanilla bean and sea salt) and almond-based concoctions ("Almond Mylk" has raw almonds, dates, vanilla bean and sea salt; "Get Up and Go-Go" is the same but with cold-brewed coffee).

Those looking for a more serious health kick can opt for a cleanse: one-day ($65), three-day ($190) or five-day ($300).

Project Juice also sells some packaged health snacks like granola, "coco-roons," nuts and superfood bars; down the line, there might be some more grab-and-go type options fashioned by Kailey Jean, a local vegan chef.

The shop is open Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; weekends, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

I thought this was the Mountain View Voice? I am so tired of hearing what is going on in the other towns.

More Mountain View: Though I am a Palo Alto Weekly staff member, this blog is meant to serve all three Embarcadero Media papers and the cities they cover. I try as much as possible to give equal coverage, but cannot control where and when certain restaurants open or close. I'm equally on the lookout for food-related news from Mountain View, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Woodside and Portola Valley. I also see the overlap as beneficial, as many residents from all these cities go to the others to eat and drink.

@More Mountain View:

Mountain View is not a hermetically sealed bubble. In addition to what Elena pointed out, there are large numbers of people who work in towns outside of their primary residence. There's a Mountain View company called Google that has many out-of-town employees.

I myself visit Palo Alto a couple of times a week, often for leisure, visiting friends, etc. despite the fact that I'm a Mountain View resident.

It is relevant for a local newspaper like the Mountain View Voice to cover topics of interest from neighboring communities, whether they be leisure opportunities (like sporting events, dining, arts) or community related issues (like crime since criminals typically don't operate exclusively within city limits).

Likewise, if a new restaurant opens in Mountain View, I hope residents of nearby towns patronize the place.

Note that if a visitor from Austin, Texas checks into the Hampton Inn on Moffett Boulevard and drops by a downtown restaurant for a drink and some appetizers, he/she is contributing to the local tax coffers.
