True Food Kitchen
Balance seems to be the mantra at this cheerful light-filled outpost of the national chain. Located in the Seaholm development, it’s the perfect place to power up with pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and a few entrées; the casual, healthy menu is loaded with nutrients but could coerce even the most recalcitrant junk-food junkie. And easing into a meal with a cocktail keeps the virtue in check. A margherita pizza—a crispy charred crust lavished with lycopene-rich tomato sauce—seems guilt-free, and a combo of grapes and pickles keeps the Mediterranean chicken sandwich savory and sweet. There isn’t much spice in the cashew pad thai, with slices of kombu to augment the traditional rice noodles. Only a dry flourless chocolate cake begged for butter and cream.
