When it comes to weekend guests, there?s inevitably someone who is juicing or eating raw, is going gluten-free or has imposed some other obscure food restriction that can seriously cramp your dining style.
Touted as indulgent comfort food that?s shockingly healthy, Fresh, a new restaurant from chef Todd Jacobs (formerly of the American Hotel), offers an awesome array of raw, vegetarian and locally sourced dishes in affordably priced portions, served à la carte or family style--our personal preference.
Slip into one of the pillow-lined booths and kick off your meal with the vegan soup of the day, a raw milk cheese plate from Mecox Bay Dairy, local littleneck clams or an organic barbecue duck spring roll. Requisite flexitarian dishes like hemp-crusted flounder are on the menu, but can you remember the last time you were digging into a dish of gluten-free mac ?n? cheese with your eternally-on-some-sort-of-diet friend?
For those who aren?t abstaining from alcohol, be sure to order the Come Out Looking Like a Rose cocktail, which blends tequila, homemade rhubarb syrup and fresh lime. Just let your teetotaling pal drive you home.
