The Earth provides a bevy of items to benefit humanity: spinach for strength, pinecones for home freshening, and heads of cabbage to express theatrical criticism. Snack on nature's bounty with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of healthy eats and drinks at Organixx.
Organixx uses organic ingredients to create healthy meals for omnivorous diners in the LoDo district. Sustainable greens and vegetables captured on local farms comprise salads ($7.95 for a full, $5.50 for a half) like the quinoa salad nicoise, a pairing of South American grain with Mediterranean accoutrements, and the hollowed Avocado Tower, stuffed with your choice of egg, rock shrimp, or cashew chicken salads. Grain dodging chompers graze on the gluten-free pasta raccogliere ($8.95) with artichoke hearts in a lemon-caper sauce. Slip fists into custom munching gloves and grab hold of a grilled salmon burger ($7.95), chutney and Brie-topped Organixx turkey sandwich ($8.45), or grilled cheese ($7.95), featuring two slices of sourdough and melted provolone and feta coating bacon and grilled mushrooms in their gooey embrace. Early morning eaters rev internal engines with a bowl of oatmeal ($6) or a breakfast burrito ($8) loaded with vegetarian, vegan, or meaty fillings.
Satiation-seekers place orders at the counter and take a number to one of the tables or booths lining the eatery's bright dining room. Organixx's commitment to a healthy planet shows through the incorporation of refurbished wood on tables and bamboo panels lining the walls, which draw a regular crowd of salivating pandas that block the windows. Unwetted whistles may remedy their state with a glass of wine bottled by sustainable vineyards or a bottle of beer from local breweries Great Divide and New Belgium.
- Cue Organixx, an awkwardly monikered but perfectly located new sandwich and salad spot in lunch-happy LoDo. Here, $10 will fill you up with uncommonly well-prepared, organically sourced and attractively presented meals. – Tucker Shaw, Denver Post
- All around me at Organixx, the conversation was all about Organixx — about what each person had ordered, what they'd ordered yesterday, what they were thinking of ordering tomorrow. – Jason Sheehan, Westword
