Freshii

When a groupon came up for Freshii a little while ago, I couldn't resist looking into it.  With a name like Freshii, I just had to know what it was all about.  Turns out that it was founded by a fellow who was previously a Marketing Manager for Oscar de la Renta in NYC.  He was sick of grabbing unhealthy lunches on the go, so he got the idea to create fresh, quick, healthy food that would energize people at an affordable price.  Needless to say, I was suckered into the Groupon.

The food was delicious, the atmosphere a cross between cafeteria and restaurant, and the restaurant was was bright and full of natural light...no food court dungeon here.  Overall, it was a lovely lunch (which may have had something to do with the lovely company as well!) and I definitely plan on going back.

Things to note: the nutritional information of each and every dish is posted on Freshii's website.
 
The Fiesta Salad with Chicken: black beans, corn, avocado, pico de gallo, jack and cheddar cheese, on top of field greens and accompanied with cilantro lime vinaigrette.  My lunching partner thoroughly enjoyed this meal.  ($8.50, plus $1.50 for the chicken)
 
My Mediterranean Life Bowl with Chicken: half brown rice and half salad greens, served with kalamata olives, feta cheese, cucumbers, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, almonds and red pepper sauce.  This was great!  It was filling but not too much, the ingredients were super fresh and flavourful, and it was a little bit of everything so you never got bored with anything.($7.50, plus $1.50 for the chicken)
 
The X that marks the spot!
