A permit has been filed by Kitava for a place at 375 40th Street in Oakland.
Kitava is a casual restaurant focused on serving dishes made with healthy ingredients and catering to special diets. They serve modern American cuisine made without unhealthy seed oils, refined sugars, chemicals, or artificial preservatives and avoid common allergens such as gluten, dairy, peanuts, and soy.
According to their website, they envision a food system that supports healthy people and communities by default and believe they shouldn’t have to choose between enjoying a great meal, supporting good health, and doing what’s right for the world.
Founded by Bryan Tublin and Jeff Nobbs, Kitava is inspired by healthy cultures around the world. Currently, they exist in two locations — at Mission district in San Francisco and at 401 Jackson St. in Oakland. With the new permit, they will be expanding their reach in Oakland.
They mainly serve healthy food bowls with ingredients such as plantains, grains, fresh vegetables, and hummus along with burgers, tacos, and other appetizers.
