The swanky BLVD Place in Uptown is about to get another tenant come July 29. Health guru Dr. Andrew Weil's partnership with Fox Restaurant Concepts, True Food Kitchen opens its doors in a couple of weeks, its intention to serve a menu of "honest food that tastes really good."
Those in search of healthier fare in restaurant-rich Uptown can look forward to brunch, lunch and dinner in 4,500 square feet of restaurant, patio and bar space. On the menu so far are an assortment of Natural Refreshments, include Kale-Aid (a drink of kale, apple, cucumber, celery, lemon and ginger) and the Medicine Man antioxidant blast (sea buckthorn, pomegranate, cranberry, black tea and soda). On the wine side of things, many of the selections are biodynamically farmed, gluten free, certified organically farmed or sustainably farmed. Executive Chef Patrick Sullivan will oversee the location and its menu.
In keeping with the restaurant's healthy, sustainable mission, many materials selected for the space are environmentally friendly, including high efficiency kitchen equipment, low flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, low VOC paint, reclaimed wood floors, recycled furnishings, Eco-Products compostable takeout products, and a Natura Water Purification Unit used to create still and carbonated bottled water in-house.
With this spot, True Food Kitchen adds to its seven locations in four states, primarily Arizona and Southern California, along with one in Dallas that opened in 2013. It won the Nation's Restaurant News 2014 Trendsetter award for "captivating customers with food that's both delicious and nutritious."
