Chef Laurent Guillaume, who has helped open hotels and restaurants in Paris, brings years of culinary expertise to Chouquet’s menu and adorns time-tested continental fare with surprising New World elements.

For more than two decades, Evolution Fresh has taken a different approach to making juice. The company rushes fresh-picked fruits and vegetables to its juicing facility, where they?re blended with other obsessively sourced ingredients such as coconut water from the Philippines and ginger from Peru. There are no added colors or flavors that nature didn?t put there. And, instead of using heat pasteurization like many juices on the market, Evolution Fresh cold-presses it?s juice using high-pressure processing, helping to protect the vibrant colors, flavor and nutrients in the raw fruits and vegetables. The result, a juice that tastes as close to fresh-picked as possible.
Use the Evolution Fresh Juice Ritual to jumpstart your wellness journey. If a Juice Ritual is not for you, simply take advantage of this great offer to stock your family's fridge with your favorite cold-pressed juice.
Evolution Fresh?s cafe locations not only serve cold-pressed juices, but they specialize in customizable smoothies and handcrafted food as well. The culinary-inspired food includes a cornucopia of veggies, whole grains, and proteins. Cage-free eggs and organic tofu play a starring role in spicy scrambles and other morning delights, while whole-food ingredients like quinoa, baby spinach, zucchini, kale, avocado, and fresh herbs come together in a selection of salads, hot bowls, and zesty wraps. The cafes even do comfort food, serving up toasted cheese sandwiches and signature tomato soup to combat chilly weather.
