Despite its troubled-sounding name, It’s Not Easy Being Green reigns as d'Juice Smoothie Bar’s most popular creation: a smoothie built of cucumber, green apple, kale, spinach, and green pepper sweetened by frozen mangoes and bananas. Many of d’Juice’s other juices and smoothies follow a similar recipe, blending nutrient-rich veggies such as beets and carrots with palate-friendly nectars such as peaches and pears. Those with chronic nightmares about vegetables chasing them through a garden can also scan the menu for fruit-only smoothies, which blend whole fruits with juice, sherbet, or fat-free frozen yogurt.

Cafe Delphi Greek and Lebanese Restaurant's proprietor, Mir Hassan, and expert chefs take taste buds on culinary tours of the cradle of humanity with an extensive menu of delicious Mediterranean delights. Paying homage to the ancient Greek tradition of filling up on breadsticks, appetizers prelude Near Eastern feastings with tantalizing dishes such as the fried-cheese or grilled-eggplant musaka. On main plates, Mediterranean samplers unite cabbage rolls, kibbeh, and a choice of chicken shawarma or gyros with meat tastefully dressed in a cape of grape leaves. In addition to tasty terrestrial meats, tongues swoon over sea specialties and vegetable entrees such as the Delphi’s fish topped with special pasta sauce and served with hummus and rice, or the vegetarian plate, a tasty mélange of hummus, musaka, spinach pie, and feta salad.
