At 8:24 a.m., I wondered who could possibly be texting me. (Most of the people who ever text me were with me inside the house at that moment.) It turned out to be my mother-in-law, letting me know that she'd run across a new restaurant with vegan options nearby my office. I thanked her profusely and decided I needed to check it out immediately.
Green Spot Kitchen is what was classically called a 'health-food restaurant', but rather than being attached to your local vitamin shop, instead takes the form of a trendy bistro. They serve juices, smoothies, wraps, sandwiches and salads - with an on-trend twist. (For example, kale, quinoa, and agave feature prominently in the menu.) The decor is sort of coffe-house chic except with fruit rather than coffee touches, and there's a small outdoor area with a table and chairs under an awning.
