Easy Meals at Fresh and Easy
At Easy Meals at Fresh and Easy, lie Mircea applies his philosophy of crafting meals from locally sourced ingredients to whipping up made-to-order meals for everyday dinners. The restaurant’s menu focuses on upscale, continental European cuisine and French flavors, and Easy Meals’ menu infuses family dinners and meals for one or two with sophistication at appealing prices. Headed by Ilie’s wife, who grew up in Italy and has a culinary-arts degree from the Lincoln Culinary Institute, the kitchen crew transforms in-season ingredients into dishes such as poached salmon with dill yogurt sauce, spinach cannelloni, and veal saltimbocca. Each dinner comes with a choice of a starter—everything from chilled watermelon gazpacho to roasted pork tacos—or a dessert, as well as a vegetable side dish.
Each meal is made to order and never frozen. Customers pick up their orders and heed the easy-to-follow reheating instructions. Ilie says the meals can be cheaper than grocery shopping for the same ingredients, and it lets customers reserve their free time for leisure activities or finally getting a patent for their robo-chef invention. “We try to make everybody’s life easier,” he says.
The staff insists on using locally farmed produce. “The quality of produce that you get from the farm is amazing,” Ilie says. “It simply cannot be beaten by any grocery store.” The food is “restaurant quality,” and he says he’s gotten positive feedback so far. “[One customer] said that she’s never going to cook again.”
