Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet.

The self-described comfort-food chefs at Flavor 180 redefine fast food with a menu of American fusion fare. Appetites run a warm-up lap around salads such as the spinach or caesar, before savoring sides including sweet-potato fries or turkey nachos. Culinary compadres can share or jealously guard unique fusion entrees such as jerk-chicken tacos, grilled salmon, asian-cajun turkey burgers, and pineapple-chipotle wings. Reward parched tongues and startle daydreaming bottles with a glass of wine. To seal the meal, duos or well-mannered chimera can split a dessert, plunging forks into warm slices of peach cobbler or the chef's cake.
Born of a desire to provide healthy, upscale alternatives to traditional fast food, Flavor 180 centers its quick-service cuisine on seafood, chicken and turkey. Divided into two factions, the menu offsets its Nice section of turkey dogs and grilled fish with a Naughty branch laden with catfish nuggets and jerk-chicken tacos. Track lighting spills over vivid red walls in the eatery’s interior, where the glow of a wall-mounted flat-screen TV glints off glasses of wine and beer and the bodies of off-duty RoboCops.
