Keepin’ It Fresh

Seared Tofu with Coconut Curry

Fridays are Date Days!

One of the best things about going on dates with my husband Gregg for lunch is that we usually don’t go to the same place twice. He is super amazing at researching restaurants, and I am always up for trying something new.  That’s what keeps it fresh! That said, when we find something we really like and it has lots of options, we make our way back. That’s what we did today! So after going to the gym, we kept it fresh and light and healthy when we decided to revisit Fresh to Order in Noblesville.

This restaurant has a light and airy feel to it, big open windows and, even though it’s a chain, it feels unique each time. Someone always greets us at the door with menus in hand, and we have had great service every time. One of the things I really enjoy is the fresh infused water…berries and mint today!

Whenever we go on dates, we find a cozy table and sit side-by-side, so we can share a little more intimately both our food and our conversation. Just being somewhere with such a light atmosphere feels good and were able to just relax and breathe together after our exercise.

I haven’t eaten meat in years, with the exception of  the occasional fish, so this restaurant offers plenty of options for Vegetarians and even has a Vegan menu, a Gluten-free menu, and offers add-ons like tofu. They will also substitute tofu for any meat item. I haven’t had the Black Bean Burger yet, but Gregg has had it twice, and he likes the flavorful relish that comes with it.

Lemon Frites

If you’ve never had Lemon Frites, you might want to give them a try. It was a new experience for me. I tried one and that was enough, but they are pretty and moist and, of course, lemony!

I aslo love the way the food is served on either black or white plates and dishes making it feel more upscale. It is definitley more pleasing to the eye and makes for more of a ‘fine dining’ experience. Hence their motto:

eat finer. live finer.

I think they’ve succeeded in their mission, and so have we! We found a sweet little go-to place where we can get away together and keep it fresh each time we go. Cheers!
