My friend Onica (Mommy Factor) invited me to be her “+1” for a blogger’s meal at the newly relaunched EXKi NYC a couple of weeks ago. It was great to be visiting as a guest. I had a lot of fun catching up with Onica and I really enjoyed the food too. If you ever need a place to eat healthy, tasty food (or to grab it to go) in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, EXKi is a great option.
I found myself pleasantly surprised by the healthy menu options at EXKi. I’m not really a “salad for lunch” type of gal but I decided to try the Caesar Salad (Organic Romaine, Parmesan, Croutons & Anchovy-Lemon Dressing) with Roasted Organic Salmon added. The total would have been $11, which is affordable for the generous portion size. (Meanwhile, Onica customized her own dish at the Warm Bowl Bar” combining a protein, vegetables and grains.)
Soups and sandwiches were also available in addition to smoothies and juices. Afterward, it was great to have a small, sweet dessert. There was an assortment of baked goods but my favorite was the brownie by Baked.
EXKi’s “urban garden” inspired space is open Monday-Friday from 7am-7pm. Parents will especially appreciate that EXKi not only has a menu filled with healthy, natural dishes but it is also kid-friendly. There is stroller parking, a changing table in the bathroom and Kids eat for FREE after 5pm. (Who does that in Manhattan?!)
