With the popularity of movies like Forks Over Knives, many seems to be choosing fresh and healthy foods. Fortunately, long gone are the days of sad bins of tired-looking ingredients in self-serve salad bars. Let me introduce you to Greenz, a fusion salad restaurant. Greenz offers fresh soups, sandwiches, specialty salads, appetizers and even homemade desserts. With a focus on health without compromising taste, Greenz offers a wide range of Gluten Free, Heart Healthy, Vegan and Points-Based Diet options. Greenz even offers handy little sheets right when you walk in the door with all of their menu items that meet these criterion.
Founded in Dallas in 2004, Greenz has grown into three locations. They have recently updated their Uptown Dallas location with a new physical design and new owner, Joel Stabile. “I feel like this opportunity was a perfect storm: a great location, a superior product and a fantastic support system under Greenz CEO and Founder, Casie Caldwell,” said Stabile. “I don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Everything I need to be a success is right in front of me and all I have to do is work hard to keep up the standards that are already in place.”
Fortunately, they have the same great taste with a modern look. The Warm Pear & Goat Cheese is fantastic, especially if you enjoy goat cheese and a sweet flavor combination.
The Grilled Southwestern Shrimp is an interesting mix of sweet and spicy with sweet potato straws on top.
You can also build your own salad all made from fresh delicious ingredients. By the way, don’t forget to check-in with Foursquare when you visit. They have a great “check-in special.” 🙂
Look for Greenz in Houston, Texas coming in 2013!
