Cuisine: Healthy Mediterranean
This restaurant was a delightful surprise. Nestled among the numerous restaurants in the Town Square area, it carries the same upscale feel, but with a fast food concept. You won’t find French fries here. In fact, the only way they serve potatoes is in a mayo-free potato salad. Most everything served is low fat, whole grain, and fresh.
Appetizers comprise of three kinds of scratch soups or hummus & freshly made pita. Salads include a new Quinoa salad, Greek, chicken, or Tabouli salad, or hummus & salad plate. Various classic sandwiches are offered on rye, 7-grain bread, or in a pita. Entrees include spinach, chicken or steak roll-ups, and a variety of chicken dinners including pizza, and chicken, steak, shrimp, salmon, or veggie kabobs. Sides offered are braised white beans, fresh fruit, roasted vegetables, potato salad, rice pilaf, pasta salad or marinated slaw (without mayo). Each item is labeled as to whether it is vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free.
You order at the front and your food is brought to your table. The Quinoa Salad was enough for two people easily. Tossed with tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, broccoli, green onion, feta cheese, and light lemon vinaigrette over a bed of greens. It was full of flavor without any overbearing after-tastes and filling. The hummus was also generously portioned and served with warm fresh-made pita triangles.
Everything was delicious. I walked away very full, having eaten healthy, with another meal of leftovers, and quite satisfied. The staff was friendly and the place was amazingly clean. Great place to grab a quick healthy meal for both the diet-conscious and the not-so-much who enjoy fresh food.
Overall Rating: 4 1/2 stars.
