Location Description:

If you're health-conscious, like home-cooked meals, and pick up Whole Foods-prepared meals almost every day, Gourmet Station has you covered. This Upper Eastside café offers take-out food plans - such as ten square meals for $80. This adorable red, bougainvillea-covered converted house, located on the corner of NE 76th Street and Biscayne Boulevard, also serves salads, wraps, pastas, sandwiches, and freshly prepared entrées for $8.95. Among the offerings are turkey meatloaf (served with homemade barbecue sauce) and seasoned tofu. And if the menu doesn't spark a craving, check out the cozy, flower-garnished dining area. You'll find metal tables, disc-shaped peach and white plastic chairs, and a black wall with quotes in chalk from e.e. cummings, Ghandi, and Leonard Cohen. Ask about the daily specials (all under $10); they range from grilled herb salmon to a deliciously tender chicken breast smothered in mushrooms and white wine sauce and accompanied by choice of two sides (sweet potatoes, rice and beans, or veggie of the day). It's the kind of place your hips, buns, heart, wallet, and BlackBerry calendar can equally appreciate.
