Each week we beg the question, “What’s Eating Your Phone”? This is where we all can join in on the foodie fun by sending in your latest dining photo that has you all jazzed. These are not necessarily limited to dining out, it can be from that last dinner party. And don’t think we discriminate against libations. Send in your favorite cocktail photo, too.
To be included in a future edition of What’s Eating Your Phone, send those photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. A brief description and location would be super helpful. Here are this week’s selections: Continue reading →
LYFE (Love Your Food Everyday) is a concept in a growing segment: healthy, tasty food with a conscious nod towards localism, environmentalism and some notion of social responsibility. After establishing 10 locations in California, Nevada, Colorado and Illinois they have finally arrived in Texas, and are hitting the Dallas area first. There will initially be locations in Plano (at Preston and Park), Preston Center and Uptown (West Village).

This summer in Uptown’s West Village will see the grand opening of two socially conscious concepts, Buda Juice will open up shop July 3rd with LYFE Kitchen following on July 25, 2014.

LYFE, or “Love Your Food Everyday”, includes a menu in which everything is 600 calories or less and boasts a fast-casual concept with prompt 10-minute serving time.
This summer, Dallas residents will be introduced to a unique dining experience that breaks conventions when it comes to delicious food that is good for you. LYFE Kitchen – opening in Plano (June 13), Preston Center (June 27) and West Village (July 25) – will be the perfect restaurant destination for the busy work crowd and area families who seek great tasting food that is also nutritious, convenient and affordable.
“The LYFE Kitchen mission is to ensure you Love Your Food Everyday, so we are constantly challenging ourselves to create recipes that get people excited about eating well,” said Art Smith, Executive Chef of LYFE Kitchen. “I would describe our menu as ‘guilt free indulgence’ because everything on it is as delicious, familiar and fun as it is good for you.” Continue reading →
