Organic, market-fresh ingredients abound at Saladish, where oven-baked potatoes offset an epic build-your-own salad or wrap option replete with 8 proteins, 55 toppings, and 18 high-end dressings. Thai-peanut or feta-cheese vinaigrettes cascade over morsels of portobello mushroom, soybeans, basil, and sprouts within custom-made creations that are crammed with more vitamins and minerals than a dietician's fanny pack. Four types of oven-baked potatoes make an ideal sidekick to each feast, as do the five types of gourmet tortillas—including jalapeño cheddar and garlic herb—that accompany each handheld wrap.
Founded by three former broadcasters and engineers, Pita Jungle now transmits fresh, healthy vibes with salads, tapas, and pitas stuffed with falafel, beans, or chicken. Small plates such as hummus or spanakopita make ideal starters or between-course palate pleasers, and healthy burgers replace beef disks with patties shaped from grilled portobello mushroom or seasoned black beans. Wood-fired pizzas borrow pitas as their base, piling on vegetarian combinations of pesto and feta or hearty creations centered on roasted chicken. Lively plates of mahi-mahi with pita chips or chicken del sol pack a flavorful punch. Enlivened by draft brews, daily happy hours let diners kick back and savor healthy fare.
Charm Vegan's menu draws from an eclectic assortment of international cuisines, but every dish demonstrates the same commitment to healthful, vegan-friendly cooking. Soy-based meat and seafood alternatives find their way into dishes that embrace the flavors of southeast Asian cuisine. Although the wealth of spicy chilies, sweet basil leaves, and bold curries demonstrates the chefs' dedication to Thai recipes, they also draw culinary inspiration from other regions. American standbys also find their way into the menu in the shape of burgers made with grilled tofu instead of traditional patties formed with ground beef and copies of the U.S. Constitution.
The Natural Selection menu focuses on breakfast, sandwiches, wraps, salads, and smoothies. Try the breakfast burrito ($6.75), a wake-up call full of four egg whites, pico de gallo, cheese, and your choice of ham or turkey. For lighter morning fare, Natural Selection also serves up low-fat yogurt or low-fat cottage cheese ($4.25), which comes with a choice of two fruits and granola. If you're hungry after the sun reaches its meridian, wraps are a popular lunchtime or post-workout choice ($7.50 or $8.25, with a side salad and seasonal fruit). The chipotle wrap is an edible torpedo of grilled chicken, spinach, ever-spicy pico de gallo, jack cheese, and titular chipotle sauce, while the mild Mediterranean wrap is a flattened bowling bowl stuffed with grilled chicken, baby greens, cucumbers, black olives, feta cheese, hummus, and Mediterranean dressing.
Qdoba's burrito baristas handcraft a catering menu of Mexican-inspired cuisine, customizable with a panoply of fresh ingredients for a taco, nacho, or burrito bar. Qdoba's culinary crafters craft succulent fillings for burritos, tacos, nachos, and quesadillas, including protein-packing choices, such as slow-roasted pulled pork, adobo-marinated grilled steak or chicken, and spiced shredded or ground beef, with vegetarian options also available. Taste the gooey flavor accents of the signature queso sauce, a three-cheese blend with roasted poblanos, tomatoes, and jalapeños, the pinto or black beans simmered in cumin and onion, or the creamy, hand-smashed guacamole that's ideal for filling up Queen Elizabeth's diamond-studded guacamole chalice. Tortilla chips with salsa bar and desserts complete each catered event, and customers can opt for burrito-boxed lunches and any add-ons.
