Vitality Bowls started in Northern California and are now all across the country. In Marin, owner Henry Kim runs the Mill Valley and new Sausalito outposts. The signature antioxidant-rich menu includes breakfast, lunch and dinner made to order, with many tricky-to-pronounce superfoods like acerola, spirulina, aronia and moringa, to name a few.
