This is what I always eat here:
Vegan chocolate pudding topped with pistachios (non dairy)
Red quinoa tabbouleh green salad (can have baby kale mixed with the greens) with pomegranates and almond slices
Teriyaki mushroom and tofu lettuce cups (to die for)

All of these dishes ROCK! And they cost what they would cost anywhere. Not cheap but normal for unique items in a lovely clean, crisp, open ambiance for a special lunch.

I like what this place is trying to do. I just wish they were a little more concerned about the food as they do it. First, I get that this place is trendy. That's great. But that doesn't make it good. I also think its great that you can get a healthy meal here no matter what kind of diet you are on. But it is SO expensive for what you get. The portions are very small for the price. I will say that I believe they get produce from McClendon's so they are buying local, which is a good thing. I think the 1 star reviews are a little harsh all things considered. It's not like they are terrible. I would say it's average.
