Here for the eco-conscious, The Well incorporates nutrition, local and sustainable farming, and naturally bold flavors into a wellness studio-style dining room. Everything on the menu is non-GMO, free of soy, gluten, peanut, corn, and refined sugar, and cooked with olive, coconut, or avocado oil. Signatures include the Butternut Squash with roasted squash, medjool date, red onion, caper, and Moroccan spiced pistachio; and the Kale & Lentil salad which you might fancy pairing with the Roast Purple Potato. There’s no feeling bad about indulging afterward—desserts are designed around fruit, nuts, and seeds, and cocktails are crafted using standout ingredients like cold-pressed organic juices and sweetened with natural sugars like agave, honey, and dates. We recommend The Elixir made with organic vodka, charcoal maple syrup, lemon, apple, ginger, cucumber and cayenne.

Even the cocktails are ‘better for you,’ using ingredients like cold-pressed organic juices, and natural sweeteners like agave, honey, and dates. The best thing about the downtown location is that it’s right by Barry’s Bootcamp, so you’ll get sweaty, sexy singles showing off the results of their workout. Look out for weekday happy hours—in addition to bulging biceps.
