First New York Lyfe Kitchen

Lyfe Kitchen (Love Your Food Everyday) is a fresh-casual chain that originated in California and was founded by some of McDonald’s longtime veterans. McDonald’s successes with large-scale operations is what can be brought to Lyfe Kitchen, giving the healthy-fast-food an important new competitor. There are 13 existing locations, and the first in New York City will be opening soon on W 55th Street near 8th Avenue.

Also appealing to the masses, Lyfe Kitchen’s menu was devised by Art Smith, personal chef to celebrity Oprah Winfrey and Tal Ronnen, known for being a vegan cooking “guru.” Whole grains, vegetables and low fat proteins take center stage on the menu to appeal to a variety of trendy diets (including gluten-free, paleo, etc.) and the dishes do not go beyond 600 calories per portion. As for beverages there will be no soda to keep with the healthy pattern, there will be however , wine and beer. Superfood-enhanced cocktails will also be part of the menu. The design is also “fresh” as furnishings are sustainable and recyclable.
